Answers :

Only 2 solutions I can think of, either the batteries need replaced or the charger is not putting any voltage out. Do you have a way to charge this with a USB cord? if so this will easily let you know if the batteries are good. If you have a Volt Ohm meter you can check to see if there is voltage coming from the charger. It won't be much so you will need to check the mil/amps. One internet method of fixing this is as follows . I also read that this does work in some cases, but be carefull and take your time.
\012Get a square 9 volt battery. Connect the battery to your lithium battery. The easy way to do this was using two sewing neddles. This is really better done with two people. Get the first person to hold the needles on each terminal. Then the other person lowers the lithium battery onto the needles. Please make sure you connect positive to positive and negative to negative. Hold this for about 30 seconds. This will be enough charge for the battery to hold and then the charger will work. This is a tested solution One more solution which is a little safer is to keep putting the battery on charge and take it off as soon as the red light comes on, do this repeatably 6 times or so and the battery can sometimes get just enough juice in it to allow the charger to work.

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels. If you put freshly charged batteries in the camera it will let you take 4-5 pictures tells you low batteries then shuts down. Is there any way we can return the camera to the company and receive some credit to purchase a new one for my mom? The other question is could we get it fixed?

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.

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger.
