Question about Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery problem and TIme and Date setting

My Olympus worked fine for about 6 months. Randomly it started flashing up "Battery Empty" with fully charged rechargeable batteries in it (The kind I've always used in this camera with no problems). Taking the batteries out and putting them back in seemed to fool the camera for a while, but then it would start doing it again. This has gotten progressively worse over the last few months where I'll be lucky to get the camera going 1 in 10 times that I power it on.
Also, now whenever I turn it on and actually get it working, it flashes up with Set Date and Time. I do this, but when it is next powered on I get the same thing. I never had this problem previoulsy.
Is it worth taking this in to a repair shop, or should I just burn the darn thing?!

    I have the same problem. Even with recharged batteries, I get message "battery empty". When lucky, after numerous tries, it will open and works fine.

Battery empty message when connecting olympus sw 1030 to laptop


Your recharged battery may be weak. May be time to replace.
If the battery power runs out while the camera is connected to a computer or printer, the image data may be lost or damaged. It is recommended that you
use the AC adapter. Do not connect or disconnect the AC adapter while the camera is connected to a computer or printer.Do not remove or load the batteries or connect or disconnect the AC adapter
while the camera is turned on. Doing so could affect the camera’s internal settings or functions.

My Olympus FE 360 is less than 6 months old and the flash just stopped working. is it possible that there is a ''simple'' reset or fix/test?


There is no reset or fix test. Just ensure that the battery is fully charged, and replace the battery. Replacing the batteries already reset the camera.
Ensure that you have selected Flash on the menu and shot a picture. If the flash does not start, then usually the small pcb that supplies power to the flash has a blown capacitor.
In that case call Olympus number listed on the owners manual. They will give you instructions to validate the warranty and get the camera repaired.

Need to change the time


You weren't precise if the change was due to Daylight Savings Time or just a general need to change the time so I'm giving you the complete set of instructions for changing the time

Setting the Time
Note: Use 24 hour and 60 minute format when setting the time.
For example: 2:00 pm = 14:00.
1. To make changes to your clock’s time setting, you must first put the clock into Program mode. See
section Accessing Program Mode to Update Calendar, Time and DST for instructions. When the
display flashes P1 dAtE, press the ◄ left button until P2 CL oc appears, then press the ● right
button.
2. Press the ◄ left button to choose 12-hour AM/PM display or 24-hour military time, then press the ●
right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct hour appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct minutes appear, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct time, press the ● right button.
6. The display flashes P2 CL oc again. To make changes to the DST start date or DST end date, press
the ◄ left button one time until P3 BDLE appears in the display and continue to How to Set the
Begin Date for DST. Otherwise, press the ◄ left button several times until END appears, and select
the ● right button to save your updated settings.
How to Disable DST
To disable Daylight Saving Time, set the DST beginning date equal to the ending date (i.e., DST begin
date = 08-03-09; DST end date = 08-03-09).
See next for details regarding setting the DST begin date and end date. Typically, clocks operating in
Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico do not observe DST, and disabling the DST function typically applies to
those areas only.
By default, and unless otherwise modified, DST takes effect on the first Sunday in April and ends on the
last Sunday in October (this was the United States standard through 2006).
How to Set the Begin Date for DST
Note that in 2007 the standard for DST changes to a different start date and end date. The steps below
correct the change in the new start date for DST. The new start date and end date need only be changed
once, since the clock’s rolling calendar function auto-calculates the start date and end date for DST every
year thereafter.
Note that if the begin date for DST has passed, in addition to modifying the begin date (and end date),
you will also need to modify the time.
1. When the display flashes P1 dAtE (see earlier section Accessing Program Mode to Update
Calendar, Time and DST for instruction), press the ◄ left button until P3 bdLt appears, then press
the ● right button.
2. Press the ◄ left button until the correct year appears, then press the ● right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct month appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct date appears, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct year, month and date, press the ● right button.
6. When the display flashes P3 bdLt, press the ◄ left button once to select next menu option, P4
EdLt, which provides a way to set the end date of the Daylight Saving period.
Setting Daylight Savings Time for model PIX-10/15/21
Page 4 of 4
How to Set the End Date for DST
Note that in 2007 the standard for DST changes to a different start date and end date. The steps below
correct the change in the new end date for DST. The new start date and end date need only be changed
once, since the clock’s rolling calendar function auto-calculates the start date and end date for DST every
year thereafter.
1. When the display flashes P4 EdLt (see conclusion of previous section How to Set the Begin Date
for DST for instruction), press the ● right button.
2. Press the ◄ left button until the correct year appears, then press the ● right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct month appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct date appears, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct year, month and date, press the ● right button.
6. The display flashes P4 EdLt again. Press the ◄ left button several times until END appears, and
select the ● right button to save your updated settings.
Note: To disable the Daylight Saving Setting, set the beginning and ending date to the same date.
