20 Most Recent Olympus Stylus / mju 1040 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Hello Rjkustom,

I have gotten terrible results using SUPER-Glue on
UNKNOWN types of plastics... (No...!!).

You would need to know PRECISELY what kind
of plastic ... Even then the results or often
less than CHARMING...

This is someone you are trying to make feel better...

I looked on the internet... eBay specifically
and whole cameras can be purchased here
(SF Bay area)... between $16 & $30 ... (US Dollars)
22results for olympus 1040 digital

My best advice is to look for a "donor" camera
(and make it like it never happened).

Go onto eBay and see who... & how cheaply
YOUR LOCAL Market area Olympus 1040 digits are going for...

Side note...
Here.. There seem to be a couple of colour options.

All the best (good luck with this).

Try charging it for an hour even if it is indicating that it is already full in 10 minutes. If the battery still gets drained after a few shots, then you should change your charger.

Are you saying your card is full of pictures? Why not download them to your computer using a cardreader? Then, format the card in your camera to give it a fresh start.

Olympus Stylus /... | Answered on Feb 06, 2011


Yes, you are right.

The charge indicator light will keep flashing till the battery is fully charged.

You can connect the memory card of your camera to your computer by two ways.

First if your computer has a built in card reader on it where you can connect the memory card from your camera that will do and your computer will automatically detect the memory card when connected.

Second if you don't have a memory card reader built in on your computer , you need to go get one from any electronic or computer store near your place. You just connect the memory card to the card reader and then connect the card reader to a USB port on your computer and when already recognized by the computer is ready for file transfer.

Writing to a camera card using a computer will corrupt the card 99% of the time. It will begin to give strange readings (as you have experienced) and will eventually corrupt the camera you try to play it in. I suggest you use a card reader and download your pics to your computer. Then, format the card in the camera to completely erase it and optimize it for the camera.

Solution: The most important thing to remember if your digital camera should be partially or fully submerged in water is to act quickly. Once your camera is out of the water, avoid the urge to turn the camera on to see if it works and instead remove the batteries immediately to prevent shorting any of the internal electrical components. Remove your memory card also, otherwise you may lose the pictures you’ve already taken and saved to the card.

Leaving the battery and memory card compartments open, dab away any excess water with a dry cloth or paper towel. Then, use a household hairdryer set to the lowest heat or no-heat setting and blow dry the camera for 10 to 15 minutes.

Although the outside of the camera may be dry, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. If any moisture is left within the camera, it may, over time, grow mold, which can interfere with the camera’s operation. If the camera was dropped into a chlorinated swimming pool or a saltwater lake, your camera’s components may suffer corrosion over time, and your camera will eventually stop working.

To help draw moisture out of the camera, pack your camera in a bowl filled with silica gel (the packets of small transparent beads often found in various foods, electronics, and clothing packages) or uncooked rice. Both materials can absorb and hold excess water that may be left in your camera. Leave your camera to dry for at least 24 to 48 hours. Once you are certain that your camera has completely dried out, insert fully charged batteries and press the Power button. With any luck, your camera will function properly. If not, you may try contacting a camera repair company to ask advice or inquire about repair options.

"Off" might mean the lens has retreated, but that doesn't always stop the power as you can tell. Some Olympus cameras have a view mode (look for a button and icon near your view window). You may have accidentally bumped it. Push it again and the picture should turn off. You'll probably see more than one choice -- read the button labels to determine which is the right one.

It could mean your battery or memory card is not inserted properly.. Mine also does this when my battery is low.

Olympus Stylus /... | Answered on Oct 25, 2009

If these are pictures you want to save, you can take the card to a store that has a Kodak kiosk (like Walmart). Insert your card and print the pictures or you can even make a cd of them. Once they're downloaded, format the card in the camera.
