Question about Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital Camera
How do I return the camera back to factory settings?
SOURCE: Olympus Evolt 510 LCD Issue.
I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying.
If you can be some assistance I would deeply appreciate it.

Inside the card cover, there are two 'hooks' and one small protruding pin. This pin will push a (very small) brownish contact pin that can be found near the card eject button. If either of the pins is damaged, the contact pin will not be pushed in far enough and the camera will not get the 'card cover closed' signal, which results in a 'card cover open' warning message. You might be able to fix this problem by inserting a (very small/thin) piece of cork in the contact pin hole, so that the contact pin is again pushed in far enough to close the contact.
Just to make sure this is the problem, try pushing the small contact pin in with a pen, pencil or small screwdriver. If the warning message disappears, you know the contact pin is still working and is probably not pushed in far enough.

Here is a PDF link to a manual for your camera if you don't have one.
Here is a diagram showing you much better the answer to your question then me attempting to type it out.
I made that as large as possible and still remain withing FixYa's guidelines, it should be large enough to read if not this was on page 128 of the PDF manual or message me back and I'll see if I can make it bigger.
