Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 1000 Digital Camera ?

Olympus Stylus 1000-- The camera is not reading the battery. I know the battery is good because it works in my other Olympus camera, but reads 'empty' when put in this camera


Answers :

Your camera may be ok. Every and each camera has different reactions to a battery condition depending on the design of the circuit. Your battery may work ok on the other camera but this camera needs more juice (assuming the camera is working ok). If the camera demanding more power from the battery, try the rechargable batteries. Hope this helps. -James

I have a Olympus FE 190 Camera. After a couple of pictures the battery reads red and I can take the battery out and put it back in again and it reads green. I thought maybe I have a problem with the battery so I bought a generic battery for this camera charged it up and the camera doesn't turn on. So I bought an olympus battery, charged it up and put it in and the camera still doesn't work. the only battery that kind of works is the original battery the camera came with.

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.


On rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

7 May 2010 Hi there, I have an Olympus camera that I bought in June 2007. I had a two-year guarantee, which ran out last year. Now my camera won?t come on. This happened once before but when I put in new batteries (although the batteries I was using were fairly new), it worked again. Now, however, I?ve had no low-battery warning light and one minute the camera was working, the next it had stopped. I?ve tried putting in new batteries (straight out of the packet) but it?s made no difference. Can y

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it

When I turn on my Nikon coolpix S210, it gives me a lens error prompt. I have read posts on another website and it said everything from hold the lens out by force to turn the lens slightly clockwise while it is out to rap it slightly a few times, to changing battery to taking the camera apart. Short of taking the camera apart, I have tried them all. Nothing works. I just put alot of money into the camera buying extra picture cards, batteries, etc. NOW IT WON'T WORK! And there doesn't s

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries.

Error 99 This is the second day with the camera and i got a Error 99, i read up on some websites that said to take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. Before I reset it I did take off the lens and put it back on. Now the error seems to be gone. I took the camera out with me to work and it was quite cold in the car so i am hoping that it was the moisture/dew that caused this error. Anyone else have any input on this?
