Having problems with your Olympus FE-330 Digital Camera ?

I put in my battery the wrong way, now it got stuck, can I remove it myself?



Answers :

Why yes, the fact is we never give ourselves enough credit for what we can do ourselves.
\015\012With the proper research, time, and patience; we can do anything ourselves. ;-)

\015\012I've tried to put mine in wrong - It seems as though I can not... Hmmm...
\015\012From what it sounds like, though, is you used a fair amount of force to get it in there - so it'll probably take a fair amount to get it out. Key statement: A precise application of force.
\015\012
\015\012So, here's what you need to do:
\015\012
\015\012With the camera held in a stable position, and ensuring that the orange retainer is in the 'release' position; find a means to pry/pull/extract the battery strait out of the camera. Tweezers, a small screw driver, and/or a knife will likely be your tools of choice. Not the goal is to provide as much extraction force without damaging force. So avoid destroying anything else. However, you may need to accept that if the battery is stuck enough; you probably won't be able to avoid damaging it. Which brings me to another point; if it's not working out real easily; you may want to wear protective gloves and eye-wear. Though, that's probably supposed to be general practice; it's especially important if a battery explodes. - It could happen.
\015\012But in all likeliness; it won't come to all that. Just a little prying, maneuvering, and patience should do the trick!

\015\012Good luck!

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way.

If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model) ... Digital Cameras

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.
