Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-450 Zoom Digital Camera ?

Olympus C-450 power failure

\015 I have an olympus C-450 which has been well cared for.The power has suddenly failed. It was in use when it failed, but now registers nothing. No power from batteries (tried new ones) or from USB - it seems to have literally died. I've tried taking the batteries out & leaving it for a while. All I can tyhink of is that there's a bad connection somewhere.\015

Answers :

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all.

Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.

The battery light is flashing. I have tried everything from 5V to round 7V and but nothing seems to do it. There is no shortage on current since this is a beefy lab supply...

When I turn on my Olympus FE-190 camera it shows the "card setup" screen with two choices: Power Off (highlighted) or Format, and gives a 3-ring alert sound.

If I highlight format and press OK of course it warns me I'll be reformatting the XD card.

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power).
