Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

I have an Olympus stylus tough camera that's waterproof and shockproof, and when I put the battery in the charger it flashes yellow and doesn't charge! I have only had the camera since February.


Answers :

While the battery should be good, you never know how long they were sitting before being sold with the camera. Clean the battery terminals good with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol, and also the charger's contacts. Measure the charger's output, to ensure it's good (should be 3.x volts, in that area). If the charger is good and the battery still doesn't charge, you might have to order another one (check on Ebay for a good deal).
