Problems with Olympus mju 740

Hi,
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.
Thanks
Ed

It has to go back the Olympus for replacement or to seller if less than one year.

Hi Galaxy,

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.

You must go to a camera technician. There are some parts inside that already been loosen. That's what happened to my camera before.

hmmm..well...let's see...poor resolution comes from one of two sources.

focal lengthe issues..

ocular clarity.

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?

Hi, I have got an Olympus mju 300 Digital camera, and I have bought a 2GB XD Type M+ memory card, however when I put the 2GB memory card in, it takes the camera a good 15 seconds to start up, whereas with...


There are several reasons why could happen:

1. 2GB is a lot of space compared to 16MB. The camera checks the card each time you switch it on.
2. Card is corrupt & should be reformatted.
3. Card is defective & should be replaced.

It's possible that your camera, being 7 years old, was never designed for a 2gb card. You can find cards of all sizes at amazon.com
