Olympus FE210 Will not switch on
\015 My daughter dropped her camera into a shallow salt water puddle. I have opened the camera and there is very little water ingress. I have removed all corrosion products but the camera will not switch on. Any suggestions?\015
You opened the camera?!!! You're not supposed to do that. If the camera was turned on before the water was gone, there could have been a short circuit.

My Olympus Tough 8000 charges up to a blue light but when I unplug the charger and switch it on, it just beeps multiple times and switches straight off. I've only used it for a week and it's a new, official Olympus battery. Is it a battery fault or do I need to send the camera back?

I've just bought a new DSLR Olympus camera and fully charged the battery. The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on. If I remove the card and try to switch the camera on it still won't turn on, I have to remove the battery, put it back in then switch on the camera. Any ideas what's wrong?

Switching off I have four older digital cameras (Olympus, HP, Oregon and Vivitar) and they're now all doing much the same thing. That is switching off as soon as they're switched on. The problem has come on progressively over a few days with all of them so it seems like a virus. I download images directly into a Windows XP system.

I want a list of the likely different faults which can cause an Olympus C-5060Z not to power on. I'll do the rest. A wiring schematic would help too. I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely. That means any

Not Focussing Hi ! I am Vineet from Indore,(M.P.) India I bought a new Olympus C-170 in 2004. Recently I'd been to Chennai and on the beach we took couple of photos with my digicam. But suddenly it locked and the sliding lens cover (On-Off switch) got locked. I immediatly took off the batteries. Later after few hours away from the sea beach, the buttons started working and camera switched on too.
