Having problems with your Olympus MJU 300 Digital Camera ?

Daughter plugged a phone charger in camera, now it doesn't work

\015 We recently bought a new camera and gave this one to our daughter. She then plugged a phone charger into the mains connector "to charge it up" when I had already removed the Li-ion battery and put it on charge. Now the camera won't turn on and I fear she may have blown something inside. Does anybody know if this has happened before and can be easily fixed?\015\012All advice gratefully received.\015\012Ray\015

Hello there! thanks for using Fixya.com!!

\015\012I suggest that you try another battery or better yet a new one just to troubleshoot. Maybe a damaged occured with the battery. Hope that your camera would be fine. A short circuit happened of course if we use a different kind of charger that are not applicable or not compatible with. Pls check your warranty card as what you told that it is brand new and for sure it is still under warranty. We just hope that they will cover that kind of incident. I know it can be fixed but we don't want to waste any penny. so make sure that your warranty card is still with you.

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work.

My camera is a finePix F30. It has a new battery and memory card. All within the last month. The camera doesn't open. The lens doesn't extend. when I plug the camera into the charger, there is no response or light to signal it is charging. I might have dropped the camera when packing for a trip because when I arrived at my destination, the camera didn't work. there is no sign of external damage. Can this camera be saved? Ellen

Battery charging I recieved the Jazz DV179 as a gift. The battery was already in the camera, but I was told that I would have to charge it. I plugged the Camcorder into the wall and left it for over 24 hrs to charge, but when I remove it from the plug it shuts off. If i plug it back into the wall it comes on so i know the camcorder works. I am not sure on how to proceed next. Is there something wrong with the battery?, does the battry need and external charger before you insert it into the camco
