Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Freeze Up I just got my first digital camera, chock full of buttons, dials, wheels and screens. ;-) Anyway after a few hours of playing with it - it locked up...no buttons worked.(even the power button) I had to finally remove the battery from the live camera to reset it. Since then it has happened almost half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Has anyone seen this phenomenon ? Is there cure or is it necessary to send it for warranty repair.(return to store)

Sorry this post is probably way too late for fishi, but in case anyone else needs an answer; Yes. Return it to store. After carrying out a reset several times with the same result then unless there is a fault with the battery itself, the camera needs to be professionally serviced. Hope this helps someone :)

Why is my manual Mode setting isn't working

The NIGHT SCENE and NIGHT+PORTRAIT scenes are meant to take time exposures of skylines and city streets by leaving the shutter open for several seconds. Therefore, it is necessary to stabilize the camera by bracing it against something solid or - ideally - by using a tripod or camera clamp.

so play around with the shutter speed and bring it to above 100
The procedure is as follows:
  1. Set the camera's Mode Dial to the M (Manual) shooting mode.
  2. Using the Control Dial(big wheel), set the shutter speed to 100.
  3. Holding +/- button and turning the control dail will change focal length.
  4. Play around a bit with this too utill you find right lighting for the image you need.
  5. Remember slower shutter speed needs long time to process the image

To whom it may concern, Slightly blurred red/pinkish LCD screen when camera is switched on. If I look at pic's taken before this happened they look ok on LCD screen. 1 week ago I switched the camera on...

Do the pictures still look this way when they are downloaded to your computer or just when played back on the camera screen? Was the camera exposed to high heat (like being left in a hot car)?

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W50 digital camera when cutting on the on button on the camera it says turn the power off and on again.

You can try the following 2 ways: 1. Format and restore the initial value of the camera. 2.First open the battery box cover (notice: do not pull out the battery now), then start the camera, pull out the battery just after the Len has turn out. Install the battery a few seconds later. Now start your camera with the Play button which is next to the viewfinder boot, and then moving the hand wheel to switch to camera mode, after Image appearing the screen, the camera will work properly.

Freezes on the 'Rebuilding...' screen.

The same thing happened too me about six months ago after about a year and a half of using my zen with min. problems. It would freeze on 'Rebuilding..' and then there was an endless cycle of reset but eventually it would Rebuild completely and all my music and information was fine. It seemed to be playing fine but if it froze I had to start the reset game all over again. Then the real problems started. There are a few load screens before you make it to the Rebuild and it started to freeze on that instead after awhile. I was actually revealed when I froze on 'rebuilding..' and made it that far.
If you can get it into recover mode and reboot it seems to have less problems freezing but that doesn't even work for me anymore. Then occasionally when it freezes it starts to vibrate terribly and make a horrible sound. Then it stops and flashes hard disk problems.
This all happened slowly too me. It really wasn't worth the time I put into it trying to fix it. My advice is to work on getting a new MP3 player. If you can get it past the 'rebuilding..' your going to have to play the reset game every time it freeze and it will probably freeze more often.

Return to full auto setting

To set the camera to shoot fully automatically (camera selects f-stop, shutter speed, exposure, etc), turn to Mode Dial to the green rectangle icon, right next to the "P" on the dial.

To reset all settings to their original default settings, the procedures are on page 100 in the manual.
1. Press the Menu button and use the Jump button to go to the Setup 2 menu (far right).
2. Use the arrow keys to scroll to "Clear Settings" and press the Set button.
3. Scroll to "Clear all camera settings" and press the Set button.
4. Scroll to "OK" and press the Set button.

How tu use video recording..

Hi,

The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

Canon g9 image size

Are you looking at multiple pictures in the play mode? If so select one image and you should go back to the standard method of right and left clicking the dial. The mode your in you can use the scroll wheel to breeze through images.

Kodak EasyShare Z730 mode dial

Does the "unlock" button depress? When my dial seemed to freeze, or turn very hard, I lightly coated a small piece of newspaper with petroleum jelly (both sides) and slid it all around under the dial. This lubricated the plastic and made it turn freely. Good luck!
