Sadly that symptom indicates that the camera is broken.

The device's seal protects both from the condition that you are seeing, but also protects the internal circuits from moisture.

If water has gotten inside the camera, I would pursue returning it and getting a replacement from the company.

Olympus Stylus 850SW viewfinder and photos pink and blurry


Pink photos are usually caused by White Balance being set wrong. You should see in the menu the WB icon. Change the icon to the symbol of the sun. Or.... just reset the camera back to the default settings by going to the camera reset in the menu. If this fails, then your picture sensor is needing to be replaced.
For the manual, go to the following site:

I let my friends use my Olympus Stylus 1050SW (Water/Shockproof). the day after moist are in the lens and screen of the camera. now i cant shot clear pictures because of the moist, the camera cant no...


Mistake #1. Letting a "friend" use your camera. Mistake #2. Believing a manufacturer when they tell you the camera is waterproof. The only real waterproof camera is one encased in a plastic waterproof case.

When power on blured screen apear and blured image


1. Try cleaning the lens with a soft dry cloth. Do NOT blow on the lens first. 2. You could be experiencing camera shake - if you are in shutter mode and if your shutter speed is too slow for the light available you get a blurred image.

My Olympus Stylus 850SW won't turn on. Thought it was a drained battery, got new battery, then thought it was my charger. Bought new charger. Battery is fully charged, camera still will not turn on.


Link

Good day,

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.

If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.

Regards.

The lens refuse to close on my Olympus stylus 850 sw.  It seems jammed. The camera make a warning sound when i turn it off. Can't use it.


same thing happens to mine. olympus wants to charge me more than the camera cost to fix it. It started doing it one month after the warranty expired. The problem does go away for weeks at a time sometimes but always comes back so camera is not dependable. If you shake/hit the camera repeatedly it sometimes fixes itself. Olympus sucks.

Olympus Stylus 710 Problem with lens


Turn on camera. Blurry pic. Wirly grinding noises. Blue screen.
Codes on blue screen:

5 f 0 8
5 e 0 2
5 f 0 8
5 e 0 2

Sometimes smacking the **** out of it fixes it. Today it doesn't seem to do the trick any more.

Suggestions?
