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.

Battery/power-up problem Camera will not stay powered up. The "low battery" indicator shows up on the display, and then it shuts off shortly thereafter. I've tried many combinations of AA batteries to make sure it wasn't really a low battery problem. I have not used any of the batteries Sony warns against in their manual (e.g. Manganese, etc.). Any ideas before I go look for a new camera? Thanks in advance for your help. MG

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.
