Question about Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My Olympus Fe-190 camera won't let me take pictures, says "Write Problem"...?

I have had my Olympus Fe-190 Digital camera since Christmas 2006. It has been working fine. For some reason, today I turned on my camera and it says 'Write Problem' in red letters with a blue backround. It also has the exclamation point in the square. It won't let me take a picture. When I press the button that lets me see all the pictures I've taken, it says 'No Picture' with a dotted rectangle. The only thing I did before this that might have caused this was I went to 'Menu' and 'Image Quality' and changed it from 'HQ 2816x2112' to 'SQ1 2048x1536'. But I changed it back to the original image size, and it still did the same thing. It is very frustrating. I even went to the point where I went to 'Menu' and pressed 'Reset', but it still doesn't worked. I had over 200 pictures on my camera, and I pretty sure they are all gone. If you can please help me, or think you can somewhat help me, PLEASE reply to this. Thank you!

    Hey guys! I fixed my own problem. I went to 'Menu', then 'Setup', and then clicked 'Yes'. Yes, it deleted all my pictures, but I'm just happy my camera is back and working. I'm lucky that I uploaded all my pictures onto my computer the day before.

How do I turn off the flash on my Olympus FE-190?

I looked up the FE-190 and it says it uses XD Memory Cards not discs. Several companys make a card reader that plug into the USB connector
on computers. 2 are Targus and Lexar. You could probable find an XD card reader at Walmart or Radio Shack. The XD memory card will then show up
on your computer screen as a regular folder that contains JPG files, which are the pictures.

Cannot shoot videos direct-to-pc using Fe-190

the camera can not do that kind of functionality - it does not have the capability to be set up in any type of control mode. There are some Olympus cameras that allow for this unfortunately this model is not one of them.
