Where is the camera manual?
Olympus is committed to reducing our environmental footprint. Many of our new digital cameras no longer come with a full printed instruction manual. Instead, the manual is provided as a digital copy (.pdf) located on the CD-ROM that came with the camera. PDF's can be viewed on any device with a .pdf reader such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone. It can be printed if necessary. The manual is also typically available for download from the support section of our website and also available for purchase.
Is there MAC compatible software?
Olympus Viewer II is included on the enclosed CD-ROM and is Windows or MAC compatible.
The camera does not power on. Why?
The battery may be dead or underpowered. If the battery is completely drained, the camera will not power on when the Power button is pressed. If the battery is nearly drained, the camera may briefly display a Battery Empty error message and then power off, or it may power on and then quickly power off without displaying the error. In either case, charge the battery using the charger bundled with the camera. Be sure to properly align the arrows on the bundled battery with the arrow on the battery charger, and take care to see that the "+" and "-" signs align properly. If the battery is inserted improperly, the battery will not be charged. Please see "How do I insert the LI-50B lithium-ion battery into the camera?"
How do I insert the LI-50B lithium-ion battery into the camera?
