Yes and no, the charger will probably work with the voltage and frequency in France, but the plug will not, you need to buy a North America to France AC plug adapter. These can be had for a few dollars in most places. You might even find one at the airport, even if overpriced.

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft

I have an Olympus e510 that I bought new 2 years ago. The other day I got it out to use it and it will not turn on. I purchased a new battery, charged it, and it still will not work. When I removed the battery from the charger the light on the charger was green. I decided after the camera would not turn on I put the battery back on the charger. At that time the charger was showing a red light. Could the charger be going bad?

Hi. Original battery is less than a year old. Put on charger, after battery was totally dead, and charger light went to green in only 15 mins. This was after no use for a couple of months. Cleaned contacts on battery and charger, and light turned orange. Could there be a problem with charger?
There is most likely a problem with the battery. If the charge/recharge cycle very quickly, some of the battery cells are probably damaged. Look for a replacement battery and that should fix it. ... Digital Cameras

I have a PowerShot A540 and a Canon Battery Charger (CB-4AH). The only batteries I've used with the camera and charger are the ones that came with the charger.

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger. I am trying to get the battery charger to work, but to no avail. I already had a couple of figure-of-eight power cords, so I tried to use those with the charger. But the charger appears dead, the charge light is not lighting up with either of them. Do I need a proprietary or a specially-rate

Recently I went to use the camera using battery power and the camera would not switch on, so I tried the camera with the mains lead and it worked fine.

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
