Having problems with your Oregon Scientific DS6618 Digital Camera ?

Just purchased the DS6618 new off the shelf where it sat for 6-7 years. Battery will not charge. Do I need to replace teh battery? What battery does it take? Who can replace the battery?



Answers :

Usually a battery that hasn't been used or charged for a long time ... may not be able to hold a charge anymore. So, if you have "plugged" it in (to the USB link/power source) to charge it (for about 24 hours or more), and it still isn't charged, then the battery needs to be replaced.\012
\012Unfortunately, the battery isn't easily (consumer) replaceable ... i.e. only the company does it.

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.


Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera
