Having problems with your Olympus X-715 Digital Camera ?
Hi, turning on & it keeps opening then shutting the lense won't stay on. Got new batteries
There may be something more serious wrong with the camera, but the problem you describe is frequently due to weak/wrong batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Make sure that your new batteries are the correct type for the camera and that they are fully charged. If all seems OK with the batteries, remove them and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during the cleaning, wipe both ends of the batteries with the cloth, and reinsert them into the camera. This clears the problem about 90% of the time - I hope it works for you.

After power on, green light comes on. On opening the touch pad viewer orange charge light comes on and whole camera shuts down leaving orange light lit. The only way to turn off the orange light is to remove battery. Since the battery is showing more than 90 mins remaining..I doubted it ay be battery but on changing battery with new one problem exists. I think it may be to do with the connection of touch pad viewer at hinge location. If i flip open fast the touch pad viewer stays on...then on

790SW Problems You mentioned you are on your third one. So do you just keep sending them back to Olympus with the receipt and they keep sending you new ones? Is the battery charger supposed to blink when it is charging? I was snorkeling with mine when it seized up and wouldn't work anymore. I was turning it on and off so that I could save battery power. I guess something got stuck in there. Then it would let me view pix, but not take pix. Then it said the battery cover was open, when it wasn't.

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down. I followed a procedure on the web for this issue and got the camera lens to open and it was working (able to take pictures for about a minute). When I powered down, the lense did not completely retract. I tried re-powering on but nothing happened. The camera is not getting any power. I figured the battery died so I re-charged it. I put the fully charged batt

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

My Canon Powershot S3is won't stay on. I thought it was a battery problem, so I got brand new batteries, but after two or three pictures it shuts off and won't come back on. I have gotten SO many different kinds of batteries thinking it was a power thing, but this is crazy. Please help.

Lense Issue When I turn on the camera the lense started to move out and then got stuck. How when you turn it on it just trys to adjust the lense but again it is stuck. I am required to remove the batteries to get it to shut off. I was going ot open the case but three of the screws requires a nice special allen wrench, but guess what, they did not provide it. Any ideas where I can score one?
