Troubleshooting

Some Common Issues and Their Solutions

The camera does not turn on even when a battery is loaded

The battery is not fully charged

  • Charge the battery with the charger.

The battery is temporarily unable to function because of the cold

  • Battery performance drops at low temperatures. Remove the battery and warm it by putting it in your pocket for a while.

 A language-selection prompt is displayed

The dialog shown in the illustration will be displayed in the following circumstances:Olympus TG-6 Red Underwater camera-fig 53

  • The camera is turned on for the first time
  • You previously ended the initial setup without selecting a language

Select a language as described in “Initial Setup” (P. 18).

No picture is taken when the shutter button is pressed

The camera has turned off automatically

  • The camera automatically enters sleep mode to reduce the drain on the battery if no operations are performed for a set period. g [Sleep] (P. 100) Press the shutter button halfway to exit the sleep mode. The camera will turn off automatically if left in sleep mode for 5 minutes.

The flash is charging

  • On the monitor, the # mark blinks when charging is in progress. Wait for the blinking to stop, then press the shutter button.

The camera temperature is elevated

  • The camera may shut down if its internal temperature rises after extended use. Remove the battery and wait until the internal temperature has dropped enough for the camera to be used again. The camera may also become warm to the touch during use, but this does not indicate a malfunction.

 Unable to focus

  • The camera cannot focus on subjects that are too close to the camera or that are not suited to autofocus (the AF confirmation mark will blink in the monitor). Increase the distance to the subject or focus on a high-contrast object at the same distance from the camera as your main subject, compose the shot, and shoot.

Subjects that are difficult to focus on

It may be difficult to focus with auto-focus in the following situations.Olympus TG-6 Red Underwater camera-fig 54

  • 1 It is also effective to compose the shot by holding the camera vertically to focus and then returning to the horizontal position to take the picture.

Noise reduction is activated

  • When shooting night scenes, shutter speeds are slower and noise tends to appear in images. The camera activates the noise-reduction process after shooting at slow shutter 9 speeds. During this, shooting is not allowed. You can set [Noise Reduct.] to [Off]. g [Noise Reduct.] (P. 97)

The date and time have not been set

The camera is used with the settings at the time of purchase

  • The date and time of the camera is not set when purchased. Set the date and time before using the camera. g “Initial Setup” (P. 18)

The battery has been removed from the camera

  • The date and time settings will be returned to the factory default settings if the camera is left without the battery for approximately 1 day. The settings will be canceled more quickly if the battery is only loaded in the camera for a short time before being removed. Before taking important pictures, check that the date and time settings are correct.

Set functions are restored to their factory default settings

When you rotate the mode dial or turn off the power in a shooting mode other than P, A, or n, any settings you have altered will be reset to default values.

Some settings are unavailable

Some features may be unavailable depending on the shooting mode and camera settings. g “List of Settings Available in Each Shooting Mode” (P. 136)

Pictures are grainy

Select a larger image size or set compression to SF or F. g “Selecting image quality (Still image quality)” (P. 56) Image “noise” mottling can sometimes be reduced by lowering ISO sensitivity. g “Changing ISO sensitivity (ISO)” (P. 52)

The image taken appears whitish

This may occur when the picture is taken in backlight or semi-backlight conditions. This is due to a phenomenon called flare or ghosting. As far as possible, consider a composition where the strong light source is not taken in the picture. Flare may occur even when a light source is not present in the picture. If this does not have the desired effect, try shading the lens with your hand or other objects.

The light is caught in the picture.

Shooting with flash in dark situations results in an image with many flash reflections on dust in the air.

Unknown bright dot(s) appear on the subject in the picture taken

This may be due to stuck pixel(s) on the image pickup device. Perform [Pixel Mapping]. If the problem persists, repeat pixel mapping a few times. g “Pixel Mapping – Checking the image processing functions” (P. 122)

The lens is cloudy or the monitor is hard to read

For rapid temperature change, lens fogging (condensation) may occur. Turn off the power, and wait for the camera body to become acclimated to the surrounding temperature and dry out before taking pictures.

Movies do not play back smoothly when viewed on a TV

The movie frame rate may not match the video standard used in the TV. View the movie on a computer instead. Before recording movies for display on a TV, select a frame rate that matches the video standard used in the device. g [Video Frame Rate] (P. 87)

The heading is not correct

The compass does not function as expected in the vicinity of strong electromagnetic fields, such as televisions, microwaves, large electric motors, radio transmitters, and high-voltage power lines. Normal function can sometimes be restored by moving the camera in Figure eight while rotating your wrist.

FCC Notice

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, under part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used by the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.
  • Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
  • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
  • Only the OLYMPUS-supplied USB cable should be used to connect the camera to USB-enabled personal computers.

FCC/ISED Caution

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment. This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines as this equipment has very low levels of RF energy. The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using low-power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that these low-power wireless devices are safe. Low power Wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research. IM015 has been tested and found to comply with ISED radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets RSS-102 of the ISED radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules.
