Having problems with your Olympus FE-100 Digital Camera ?

My camera was working fine. then this morning

\015 My camera was working fine. then this morning when I put the batteries in, it would not turn on?nothing at all. i changed the batteries twice, to no avail. it is not doing anything, almost like it is not getting power. no lights no sounds, nothing! it was working fine all day the day before. I used it and took several photos. i use rechargeable duracell batteries, and have never had a problem before. as I said, it seems as though it is not getting any power from the battery?????????? i checked the connections, both positive and negative, and it doesn't appear that anything is missing? please help?\015

Answers :

Check the internal contacts for bent, broken or improper connections.
\015\012Try inserting and pressing the battery in the camera while keeping the battery door open to see if the camera powers (This may help you determine if the battery is being held in correctly by the battery holder or the battery door.)
\015\012Check that the battery door closes properly and is snapped into place properly. Make sure there are no cracks or any defections on the battery door.
\015\012
\015\012If you check all of these things and there is still no power to the camera you may want to send the camera to Olympus for evaluation and or repair service.

The green light above the screen on the top left does flikker when the camera is turned on (which is normal). I am even able to take a photo and the flash works. Through all of the the s

I purchased my G11 end of Nov 2009, and just started to have problems this morning. When shooting, the directional buttons, control dial and func/set button won't work.

Once it happens, none of the buttons will work. This happens about 1 minute after the camera has been switched on. Is there a way in which

I dropped the camera this morning & now it wont turn on at all. I am just sick. Help! It fell on the top edge by the zoom button. When I picked it up, the side door (usb input etc.) was open. I tried to charge up the battery & that didnt work either. I called Lumix/Panasonic & they are helpless. They told me that I can send the camera in to be replaced for 175.00.

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob
