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:

SOURCE: we can get in to

Put the camera (turned on) in normal shooting mode then press the ok/func button (middle of the navigation buttons) at the bottom will appear PROGRAM AUTO push right navigation button so the P illuminates not the AUTO press ok/func. You should now be able to select panorama in the normal shooting mode menu press func/ok then select combine in camera then select ok/func.
Good luck- I fretted over this for two days till finally getting it-and you the manual does not help!!!!!!!!!

This happened to me before and its because i put the battery in the charger the wrong way up. Make sure you put it in so that the side with OLYMPUS in it in big letters is facing up!

SOURCE: blurry lens after using it underwater

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.

SOURCE: D: 5e02 Error display on Olympus Stylus 700

I have the same problem. It is said that if you turn on the camera looking at the ceiling and, just in the moment that the lent is out, "sake" nicely the camera to the top the camera turns on properly. IT WORKS.

Olympus Stylus 850 SW LCD screen will not turn on. The camera itself will turn on and take pictures but i must do it blindly. i cannot see the pictures nor can i see through the lens.


If you camera is built with a viewfinder there is usually an option to de-activate the lcd screen. Usually if you press the display or play button on the back it will re-activate. Also try to access any of the menu's by pressing the menu button. If this does not work also then the LCD is probably bad or not making connection. You would have to find a local service center for repairs. www.phototech.com is the local service center in NYC or you would have to send directly to Olympus in Woodbury Long Island.

Good Luck

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature...


Hi Steve, I inform you that the problem only is moisture. Please follow this.
1. Put the camera in sunlight for few hours. After that use it & if you face same problem then
2. You need to visit camera repair shop and they open the camera completely and clean all the inside part of the camera. because you need to clean the moisture inside of lens, viewfinder & sensor too.
So only hope in sunlight. If its solve then fine.

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.

Pls help i have a problem with my olympus camera stylus 850sw, when I would turn it on it says write protect.what will I do...pls help


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position nearest the contacts enables writing, the position farthest from the contacts protects the card from writing. If the slide is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try a different card.

Pictures on memory card


A lot of cameras these days use sub directory folders on the memory stick. Try using a computer to drag all the photos to the top most layer directory on the memory stick.
