Olympus 545 Camera Zoom Troubleshooting Information

If a picture is truly worth 1,000 words, a picture stuck on a digital camera is worth primarily those of the four-letter variety. It seems for every advancement made in the world of digital photography, there's an equally perplexing problem that pops up at the worst time. If you own an Olympus D-545 Zoom and are ready to pull your hair out over camera issues, don't worry. You'll be safely snapping panoramic pictures again in no time by adhering to the following troubleshooting measures.
  1. The Basics

    • As with any electronic device, there are a handful of error messages that are more common than others on the Olympus D-545 Zoom. Thankfully the solutions to most of these are rather simple.
      If you receive a message indicating there is a card error, for instance, the solution is simple: Something has corrupted the card, and it must be removed and replaced with another one, according to the troubleshooting section of the Olympus D-545 Zoom manual.
      Other similar messages include warnings such as "memory full," "card full" and "picture error." None of these is terribly dangerous and can be solved by either simply deleting pictures from the card (for the first two) or by downloading the image to a computer to examine it more closely.
      Also, consider extraneous factors if the camera is acting out of the ordinary. For instance, when using in extreme cold, make sure to warm the batteries before placing them in the camera. Cold batteries tend to drain of power faster, and can lead to briefer charge time or an inaccurate display of the remaining battery power.

    The Rest

    • There are simple steps to correct many other problems, as well.
      If the monitor is difficult to see, make sure it is clear of all condensation, that the brightness settings are adjusted correctly and that the monitor is not exposed to direct sunlight.
      If you are having trouble with the flash, make sure the camera is not set to one of the functions in which the flash is disabled. If the camera is in super macro mode or panorama mode, or if sequential shooting is set, the flash will not fire.
      Many problems occur only when the camera is connected to a computer. It is important to keep in mind that the camera will not shoot when connected to a computer.
      If the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the camera from the USB port and try the connection again. If the USB driver has not been installed, make sure to install the Olympus Master. The driver should be provided with your camera.
      Many problems can also be avoided by simply double-checking certain parts of the camera. Always make sure you are using charged batteries and that they are inserted properly (the manual provides the proper instructions). Also, make sure the camera is not in sleep mode, and that the flash has had the proper amount of time to charge before snapping a photo. Finally, before attending an event in which you expect to snap a lot of photos, make sure the memory card is as clear as possible to ensure it doesn't fill up in the middle of the event.
      With those few tips, and the troubleshooting solutions presented above, there should be little standing in the way of you and a house full of documented memories. That knowledge alone is worth 1,000 words.
