Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

Sorry to bother and hope this is free of charge. My name is John Gong and I bought this camera from staples to record videos for my youtube channel. Apparently I chose this camera but they had none in stock but the sample. I bought the sample since it seemed to be in good condition. I was wrong, when I bought the camera and started "trying" to charge it it did not work. I realized the camera's slot for the charger to go in seems to be bit slant and a little wide. I'm pretty sure this was because

Hi John. This is a free service unless you decide to get premium advice from a professional and you will be told the cost beforehand so do not worry. I am a volunteer. My guess is that you have connected the camera's USB cable to the computer? Some new model cameras charge that way, but in most cases the battery has to be taken out of the camera and charged in a special unit that plugs into an AC wall socket. The camera-USB cable being slightly wobbly may not be a problem. The cable is used to download the photos to the computer. Download and read the manual from Olympus.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

I have a Olympus FE 190 Camera. After a couple of pictures the battery reads red and I can take the battery out and put it back in again and it reads green. I thought maybe I have a problem with the battery so I bought a generic battery for this camera charged it up and the camera doesn't turn on. So I bought an olympus battery, charged it up and put it in and the camera still doesn't work. the only battery that kind of works is the original battery the camera came with.

Why won't my Kodak mx1063 easyshare camera charge? At first I lost the original charger, so I bought a new one online. That didn't work, so I bought a new Rayovac Li-ion battery. I charged this and it worked. After the camera needed charging again, I plugged it in and nothing happened. The charging light didn't even come on. What should I do?

I have bought this camera about one and half years ago. The camera worked for about alittle more than a year and it did work well. I have charged the battery to full a charge. The camera turns on but when you try and change anything with the camera it stays in this one mode. I try and cancel pictures from memory and it will not let me go there. I have tried all different modes and it will not move.

Hi recently bought a fujiilm ax200 and i used regular Duracell batteries just to test out the camera. Then I purchased rechargeable batteries and the camera for working fine for the five minutes i took photos with it. When trying to upload the photos onto the computer the camera would not turn on. I plugged it into the laptop with the usb and it just wouldn't work. Even after I unplugged it the camera is not working, i tested other batteries and the rechargeable ones are fully charges and work

Battery/Docking Station The camera was working fine. No, I did not drop it nor has it gotten wet. I had recently gotten back from vacation and put the camera on the docking station. I extracted some photos put them on my computer. Then proceeded to just let the camera charge. After a few days I went to go and use the camera again, but it would not power up. I get nothing from it. Now, I went on Amazon and bought an equivalent battery to replace the Casio one. The camera worked. So I put it on t

My camera worked perfectly fine until the battery went dead. it wasnt the original battery that came with the camera and i charged it with the charger that did come with the camera so i thought the charger just blew the battery with too much voltage so i bought another battery that matches the charger and the camera and when i charged the new battery and put it in, the camera wont even turn on.

Nikon Coolpix L110 camera was bought for me for Christmas 2010. Worked fine at first, but now seems to be having problems. Batteries don't last. I just bought new batteries in Feb/March this year because ones from Christmas didn't hold a charge for some reason. Now the ones I just bought recently won't let camera do more than turn on, but then it goes black and / or says "battery exhausted" before it shuts off.

Is it just the camera??? Help me please!

Batteries "depleted" my camera was working perfect with some rechargeable NiMh batteries i had bought, giving me about 400 shots / charge. However at one point, for no apparent reason, when i used them, they would be shown as 'depleted' by the camera after about 4-5 shots, shutting the camera down. It stayed like this so I decided to buy a set of new NiMh batteries, i bought panasonic brand. But the problem remains now, whenever i insert batteries, they will be depleted (or at least according to

Or it will work for about to minutes before blinking out without even closing the aperture and zoom lens. I have tried charging the existing batteries and i've bought new ones and madesure they a fully charged. I get the same problem... Can anyone help me, or can you tell me what's wrong with it???


Check the contacts and clean them if necessary. If that does not help, try a different BRAND of batteries and see if the issue persists. If it does, it could be a problem with the power board, which calls for servicing.. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.
