I'm familiar with LCD displays having stuck pixels, but is it possible for a CCD in a camera to have the same issue?

My E-10 seems to have this problem. The same pixels are white on multiple images, at multiple resolutions.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Stuck Pixels was a common problem with the Olympus designed CCD used in the E-10. AFAIK, the E-10 was the last model to use an Olympus designed CCD.

Of course,CCD's from other manufacturers have this problem, too (it's not unique to the Olympus CCD used in the E-10).

In any event, Olympus did come out with a firmware upgrade to address the complaints about stuck pixels, requiring the camera to be sent back to Olympus for the upgrade (which was available at a cost of $19.95 to cover shipping and handling). Thenew firmware has the ability todetect and remap bad pixels.

If you scroll down to the bottom of this page from theE-10review here, you'll see the information on the upgrade:


I'd contact Olympus to see if it's still available for your E-10 if I were you.
