Camera wont turn on


1. Are you sure the battery is fully charged?
You can charge the battery by connecting the Olympus USB cable to the camera and computer.
Or using the delivered wall charger. When charging the orange LED on the camera should light.
When fully charged, the LED is off.
2. If this does not help you, check if your battery is well seated in the camera.
3. Check if the battery is faulty by replacing it by another one.

How do I charge my Olympus camera? I've gone over the instructions a dozen times, and I just can't get it to work. Please help....


You must use the F-2AC battery charger along with the provided USB cable to charge the battery in the camera. Make sure the cable is inserted fully into the charger and the camera, it can take some force.
To charge the battery outside the camera use the LI-41C battery charger.

Do you guys make a wall charger which has a cord to jus plug in to my camera vs take batteries out every 45 minutes to charge again


You need to contact Olympus or buy one from a site such as Ebay. Search on Ebay for your camera name and model. They vary, but should be reasonable.
If you are needing to charge the batteries so often, then either the charger is not good or the batteries, one or all are weak or defective.
Make sure that the menus are set for the kind of batteries you are using.

Battery charger won't charge


Hi,
I'm sorry to say I don't know much about Olympus digital cameras, I've never had one on the bench.
I would take your camera and charger to a shop that sells Olympus batteries try a different battery first, this way you can try it out before you buy and make sure the camera and charger are working ok...

The battery is a Li-Ion, when these get flattened too far they shut down and will refuse to charge, they can sometimes be recovered by using a power supply to lift them but you must be very careful (use a 300ma wall wart at just over the rated voltage of the battery for 10 mins then put it back in the charger) as they can catch fire if over charged, shorted or connected backwards also if its been so flat it refuses to charge its certainly past its best and should be replaced as its likely it will let you down again.

On the other hand it could be the charger, so best to try and check out both before buying anything.
If it happened very suddenly and the battery was still able to run the camera for quite a while I would think a charger problem is more likely, if the battery has been taking less time to charge recently and lasting shorter times its more likely the battery..
Having said that the protection circuits can shut down a seemingly good battery for other reasons.

If you find its the charger third party (non Olimpus) chargers are available quite cheaply on ebay as are batteries

Best of luck

Battery life expectancy


The battery life of AA alkaline batteries varies according to the manufacturer and power rating. Alkaline batteries can provide up to 100 shots with typical usage. Olympus NiMH batteries (B-01 4PE) provide approximately 250 shots per charge and can be recharged 300 to 500 times. Olympus recommends the use of CR-3V batteries or NiMH batteries. Olympus sells an NiMH Battery set which includes a charger and set of 4-NiMH batteries. You can purchase this through Olympus dealers or through the Olympus Emporium (www.olympusamerica.com/store).
