I just bought this camera from an auction. Camera turns on fine and everything seems to be working except the LCD screen and viewfinder both dispalys everything in Green color. I tried to change filters, set white balance, change digital effects but nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: MY CAMERA ONLY DISPLAYS EVERYTHING IN GREE
Almost sounds like it's in night shot mode, but I don't think to 2000 has that. sometimes during shipping the board to board connectors may have come loose. I would check for a loose one off the 3 ccd assembly. Thats a pretty good unit you have there, worth looking into. be carefull taking it apart there is a some 4 pin ribbon cable that can rip, just take it slow. I work on alot of these. they are a workhorse.

I have the exact same problem. It started with the recurring "change batteries" problem - which was solved by using non-rechargeable batteries. Now everything is working fine except there seems to be no light coming through the lense. Everything except reviewing mode is black and all my pictures are completely black. I dont know where the problem is. Could be the ccd. Might take this to the camera shop but im expecting it will cost over $100 to fix... any help?
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the memory card.
3. Remove the batteries.
4. Wait at least 3-5 minutes.
5. Place the memory card and batteries.
6. Turn on the camera in any mode except review mode.
7. Take any ordinary picture.
8. Change the camera mode to review.
9. What happened now. Is everything normal. if not please write a comment to explain the situation.
Take the batteries out of the camera and let it sit for around an hour. Turn your dial to "set up", then put the batteries back in and turn the camera on, it should ask you to reset the date and time on the LCD. If it doesn't, your camera is essentially dead. Buy a new Panasonic FZ35 if you can afford it. Best All Around Camera I have ever had including the more expensive SLRs.
I have the same problem. I contacted Olympus and it is 29.95 plus tax to repair. Right now I am getting around the problem by holding the cover and controlling it as I open or close to make sure the camera turns off and on.
I purchased a second reconditioned camera from Olympus on the auction site for $35.00 and it arrived yesterday.
It comes with everything except a remote. The battery is the newer L12B. Considering the cost of a replacement OEM battery and the camera looks new, it seemed to be the best work around to having the camera repaired.
I keep it because I have the underwater case for this model and to buy a case for another camera is big bucks..
To release the lens you need to push the lens release button which is on the bottom left of the lens mount, and then turn the lens counterclockwise. If this doesn't work then it is most likely a broken lens release button, and you should then bring the camera to an authorized service technician.
This indicates the back light has blown.
The whole screen will need replacement- if the part is available -of that I cannot advise you,
The repair costs in a work shop will outstrip the value of the camera, that is alomost certain
