Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

There seems to be some kind of short and the camera runs thru batteries like crazy. I also need the cable that connects the camera to the commuter to transferphotos.


Answers :

Not sure which Olympus you have, but I own an Olympus SP-550UZ and it uses 4 AA batteries and uses a USB to USB mini as Voodoomox posted a picture of to sync to PC with. That cable is not proprietary and very inexpensive, so you can pick one up locally or find one online without a problem.
I found that even Duracell Ultra AA batteries don't hold up very long in any of my digital cameras, so I switched to NiMh (Nickle Metal Hydride) 2600 MAh rechargeable batteries and a charging station and they seem to last 3 to 4 times longer than the best Alkaline batteries I've used. I haven't reached 100 recharges on any of my batteries yet, but that is the number of recharge cycles that their advertised to last for.
Are you using rechargable batteries? if so everytime they charge they loose a bit of power sucking up the power quicker then before.

\015\012if its a rechargable battery by the company themselfs make sure there is a warrenty on it.
\015\012
\015\012Also id recomend the Energizer e2 Lithium batteries.

When I try to transfer pics from the FE-170 to my Mac (as I have done before) it says the camera is not connected. The camera shuts off when I plug it in, which makes me think it's the batteries; I guess it could also be the cable. Are cables easy to replace? Should I be using lithium batteries, instead of generic double A's?

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.

I can't transfer my pics from lumix lx3 to pc. When I first connect camera to pc via usb cable, a new drive pops up and I can initially see my pics. Then things lock up and my pc tells me that it can't read from the drive and my camera won't turn off (unless I remove battery). Is this a common problem? The camera and sandisk sdhc 4gb are brand new. I'd rather not need depend on a card reader. Any help?

I have a Kodak EasyShare CD83. The problem I am having is as soon as I turn it on, it shuts off immediately. The lens does extend itself. Also, in the bottom right hand corner of the camera is what looks like a camera icon that is flashing. I thought the battery needed recharging, so I did that, but the problem still exits. Please help and thank you.

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge.
