Question

Olympus C740 photos are lighter on the left than the right?

My photos are lighter on the left side of the photo than on the right. This is a recent problem. It is almost as if a brite light was just left of the camera. I haven't tried anything to fix it. But I love this camera and don't want to replace it. We have an online business and take 1000's of photos a year.

The good news is it's doing/done good work.

If any reset does not help, why not contact the maker and arrange for repair?

Reset?

I really can't send it off. We are in a very rural area and to send it off for repairs may take a life time. We are trying to find the manual to see if we can reset it, but haven't located it. Because all of our photos are taken in "manual" mode I don't know that resetting the camera would have any efect?

Then the next thing to do

Is to find and order the exact model. Given the ebay, amazon and more it's possible there are more like it out there.

How hard was it to find the makers web site? It was 2 clicks here to http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=909

I see manuals. If you need members to check if there are manuals and if there is a reset just ask. But since you have to do this, it's best you look.

I see used models from 50 bucks at places like http://www.amazon.com/Olympus-Digital-Camera-Optical-Zoom/dp/B00008IHTY

Is this worth that much?
