Question about Olympus mju 740 Digital Camera
I bought this camera a year ago, together with its u/w housing. At first it worked well but after about a month it the screen started to go black but the red pilot lamp would stay on as though it was recording a picture. sometimes it comes back on automatically, while other times I have to switch it on again.
It can happen when I try to shoot a picture and sometimes on its own.
All this happens only when it is in the housing, irrelevant of the depth (10 mt to 40 mt).
I sent it to Olympus but they returned it saying there was nothing wrong, but the problem persists. Sometimes this can go on during the entire dive.
SOURCE: C-8080 Turns off/on randomly..
Try running camera directly on DC from charger and see if it stays functioning.
If it does, they you either have:-
1) a faulty Lion battery
2) the battery detect circuit in the camera is faulty (reporting low battery and forcing shutdown)
3) the power switch on top of the camera may be leaky or partially collapsed
4) internal power supply circuit in camera has developed a fault.
Good luck...hope that the issue is the battery.

hmmm..well...let's see...poor resolution comes from one of two sources.
focal lengthe issues..
guess we'll try focal length...did you check to see that the housing and the lens are compatible, and perhaps you are experiencing refraction 101?
