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.

Best,

JP

SOURCE: I have olympus e300 evolt and the read out says

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.

Digital SLR will not focus


check the contacts on the lens... since it is copper and would develop copper rust... clean with iso alcohol and let air dry for an hour... clean the contacts on the camera too.

reset the camera back to factory defaults by mode dial to p, press menu, and custom reset back to factory defaults

also certain camera settings such as focus points and iso will help in low light

Try updating the firmware on your camera to the latest version using the Olympus master software. There have been several revisions since the camera came out.
