Here is a screen shot of the menu you should see when you turn it on set it to normal mode and press the menu button, in english instead of the japanese you are seeing. I am hoping for your sake the menus are laid out the same way and only the words or characters are different.
Scroll down to the second wrench, select the second from the bottom, and press SET. English should be the first option at the top of the next screen. Highlight the first option and press SET.

I uploaded the manual of this camera to fixya, though it may not turn up for a day or two due to processing.

Look through my other posts for this camera and you will find the link to the cameras manual online elsewhere.

I hope that helps.

Why wont it turn on

Most common problems with modern LCD computer monitors and LCD,LED tvs are it power supply boards have dead and dying capacitors components parts on the power supply boards.That the board u alway check it first and throughtly for dying and dead capacitors components parts.That the board where the tvs or monitors A/C power cord plug in it.U have all the basic tools also u can do soldering works and understanding basic electronic components.U should by replacing these dying and dead capacitors components with no problems at all.But when u are replacing all these dying and dead capacitors components parts that are bulging up and busting out of it normal cylinders bodies.Replacing these new capacitors components parts alway up the voltages higher in these new capacitors components parts like 5 or 10 voltages higher will stably the power supply board alot better and don't put out to much heat for the capacitors chemicals make up to handle.If u can not do basic soldering works and have all the tools or understanding basic electronic components theories.Tries websites like, to buy a whole new refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

I put a brand new fully charged batterie in my olympus stylus 600 and it still won't power on, any suggestions as to my?

Without specialised test equipment, diagnosing faults on totally dead electronic devices is near impossible. Even with the right tools it can be difficult.

Unfortunately your camera is effectively now scrap: any kind of professional attention will cost more than the camera is worth and spare parts may not even be available. Your camera was designed to last around five years, so all that can be said is that it has failed a bit earlier than it should have. If your camera has ever been wet or has been covered in condensation (as may happen when moving from the cold outdoors to a warm house) or has ever been dropped then it will have shortened the lifespan.

If you are confident that your camera has never been wet/dropped then it may be worth complaining to Olympus. They may offer to examine the camera but will usually warn that if found to have been liquid/impact damaged then they will charge a fee and return the camera unrepaired to you. Otherwise they may choose to repair it (subject to spares availability) or may offer a discount on a replacement.

How much our these cameras worth

Like all non-specialist, non-collectable 35mm bodies, yours is almost worthless, sorry.

There is usually some demand for K-mount models like yours, but the prices are still very low (no more than £10) as a potential purchaser is likely going to need to get the foam light seals replaced, new batteries and will need to spend money on running a few test rolls of film and processing in order to check that the camera still exposes correctly. Although the light seals can wait until after testing, the film, processing and batteries are all a gamble if the camera is no longer functioning correctly. For all these reasons, cameras like yours are often offered free on FreeCycle/Freegle.

If you can prove that your camera has new batteries, light seals and has recently been serviced then it's worth up to around £40 maximum for the body only. US prices will be about 30% lower.

Dead Whirlpool Double Oven

This happened to us the first time we used the self-cleaning feature. The repairman said we had to replace the whole electronic panel -- but when he put in the new panel it didn't work either. It turned out he just needed to replace the oven shutdown thermal fuse I believe. We finally got up enough courage to try the self-cleaning again and the exact thing happened. The door is locked and the electronic panel is dead again. So when we get it fixed we will never use the self-clean again.

A330 takes pic but wont store in memory

Dirty internal contacts - to major failure if this is a card with side contacts ,wrap a piece of paper around the card and gently push it home and out and in several timse in an attempt to polish the contacts. If that fails then the camera is dead- a repair shop price will be well on the way to the price of a new camera and a more upto date one too.
