Having problems with your Olympus E-510 + 14-42 mm 1:3.5-5.6 Lens + 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 Lens Including Charger, Lithium battery Digital Camera ?

Camera shuts off almost immediately after I turn it on. I might get one picture taken and then it just shuts down. Sometimes I need to turn it off and on a couple of times just to be able to take a picture. I have 2 batteries and have charged both of them fully to make sure it wasn't a battery problem.


Answers :

Also clean the battery terminals inside the camera, as well as on the batteries with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol or a pencil eraser.
\015\012Measure your battery to make sure it's holding a charge..
\015\012Now to the other problem it could be. Dust and dirt and lint work their way into the lens assembly, and you can take some compressed air ($4 at Walmart) and spray the lens out as well as you can. There are numerous gears that can jam as the lens extends, and if it doesn't initialize correctly, it will turn the camera off and retract the lens.

I have an olympus stylus tough 6000, when I turn it on, I see the olympus name on the lcd screen. It then beeps several short spurts and it shuts itself down. I have charged different batteries and still on a fully charged battery, it does it still. When I turn the knob to view pictures, I am able to do this, but if I turn to take a picture or video it shuts down.

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels. If you put freshly charged batteries in the camera it will let you take 4-5 pictures tells you low batteries then shuts down. Is there any way we can return the camera to the company and receive some credit to purchase a new one for my mom? The other question is could we get it fixed?

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.


These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

We have a Canon Power Shot A570 IS, purchased October 30, 2007. We have purchased new AA-size NiMH batteries for it but the problem remains. Whenever you turn it on it shows "Batteries Low" and shuts itself off. You might be able to take 1 or 2 pictures before the batteries low light comes on. I understand that lithium batteries will not work in this camera. Please advise. Thanks, Eileen
