Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital Camera ?

SSWF Light Hi, I've had my evolt 300 for a little over 3 years and it had been working fine. I charged battery up and went to turn on the camera and there is nothing-it won't come on and (sometimes) the blue sswf light stays on? I just bought a new wide angle lense and it won't come on when I'm using the new lense either. Thanks!

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please


The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.


It is definitely a CCD issue. First of all how long have you owned the camera? I am guessing it is out of warranty so in most cases it is the best option to purchase a replacement as you will be able to get one twice as good for about as much as the ... Digital Cameras
