When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.
Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera
Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.
On rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
Olympus FE-140 I keep having to install new batteries. The batteries die after a short usage time and I always shut my camera off when not in use. The batteries are not 'dead' because I test them but a lot of their juice is used up (about 1/2). Is this normal for this type of camera. They also die if the camera is not used for lets say a couple of weeks. Thanks!
My opinion, it is not because of your battery. But it is happen because of some of your camera component is damage. I think it is 'Power IC'. I've got this experienced through repairing my customer digital camera. The posible cause of this damage is ... Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera
Battery drainage I have had my olympus sp-550 uz for approx 18 months, and was getting around 175 shots even when using zoom a lot. I am now getting only 20 - 30 shots using new batteries and also getting total drainage over night at times when my camera is turned off. I have been using the same make and type of batteries since I bought the camera.
20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batter ... Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera
BATTERY DISCHARGE I have an Olympus FE 210 Digital Camera and had been using the same for over 3 months. Recently I observed a problem in the same. When I put the camera on, I can browse on the LCD screen and can see the snaps available in the memory. However, when I try to click a new snap, before the flash could pick up, the LCD screen trurns blue and starts showing the signal "BATTERY EMPTY". I changed many sets of new batteries but the problem continues. I am not able to use the camera for c

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks
You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend. Have you checked the co ... Olympus Digital Cameras

You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH rechargeables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task, and they can leak and cause corrosion.NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are avail ... Olympus Digital Cameras
7 May 2010 Hi there, I have an Olympus camera that I bought in June 2007. I had a two-year guarantee, which ran out last year. Now my camera won?t come on. This happened once before but when I put in new batteries (although the batteries I was using were fairly new), it worked again. Now, however, I?ve had no low-battery warning light and one minute the camera was working, the next it had stopped. I?ve tried putting in new batteries (straight out of the packet) but it?s made no difference. Can y

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). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft

Charging problems I have recently bought a new ac adapter for my olympus stylus 600 and when i plug it in to charge it the camera will turn on and i can use it but it doesn't charge the battery.

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 have an Olympus e510 that I bought new 2 years ago. The other day I got it out to use it and it will not turn on. I purchased a new battery, charged it, and it still will not work. When I removed the battery from the charger the light on the charger was green. I decided after the camera would not turn on I put the battery back on the charger. At that time the charger was showing a red light. Could the charger be going bad?

BATTERY I have an older DSC-50 which works great...I bought the new W-170 and they both use the NP-BG1 batteries. I have used the newer battery in the DSC-50 camera and now when I try to use the orignal older battery my camera tells me (For use with compatible battery only) and then shuts down. I can still use the new battery in both cameras. I get the same response from the W-170 with the older battery. Battery has been great and has been holding a good charge... Any ideas?

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used. The pic quality is fine. The ease of use is fine. The problem lies in the battery longevity. Maybe that is not even the right description. I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time. The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on. Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.
