Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera ?

Battery runs out too quickly


\015 Hi, I have an Olympus CAMEDIA C-765 since 2004. Everything fine until this year, when the battery seems to run out after just a few shots. I thought that the batteries were dead so I bought a couple of new ones but the same problem happens. They take a while to recharge, which seems to me that they were empty. But they run out almost as soon as you start taking pictures. Is there any solutions or should I just think of buying a new camera? Thanks for your help.\015

Answers :

I have the same problem but i figured out a pretty decent soloution. It's sort of a hassle, but it conserves your battery life dramatically. All you have to do is take out the battery (which is kinda fun if you ask me) and store it somewhere safe while not using the camera. You should even do it if you are only leaving it off for a short amount of time. i figured that the camera unintentionally drains your battery life even if off, but obviously cannot when it is out of the camera. i hope this helps you as it did me!

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys.

A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut
