    I've had the same problem and have put three different sets of batteries in to ensure it wasn't the problem. It still will either not turn on or only takes about 2 photos then turns itself off.

    I have a similar problem. I thought if I downloaded all my photos off the memory card that would solve the problem. It didn't. I have new 2450mAh rechargeable batteries. The orange and green light blinks, the lens will go out sometimes but after just a second it retreats. I have no clue.

I've experienced a very similar problem. I took our camera to a Bridal shower with 2 sets of freshly charged (I validated the charge) NIMH rechargeables plus a set of new alkalines. Regardless of which batteries I used, the camera indicated low battery after one or two pictures were taken, if it would take one at all. Its NOT a battery problem in my case.

I had the same problem and i called up cutomer support on 1300 659 678 (Australia) and they said that the problem may lie in your batteries. It was advised that you use Lithium batteries, and to avoid use of Alkaline, since they dont have the required power to operate the camera which is why it turns off right away. As to what type of rechageable batterires to use i am not sure, i think it was Nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries. Hope this solves your problem.

Problem with the Olympus FE-115 Digital Camera my

Unfortunately, the picture error message means that the image been modified such that the camera can't read it. It is possible that the camera thinks the picture was taken by another camera. Since the picture is still good when you check it with the computer, it hasn't been damaged. Archive the picture and make sure to back it up after it goes on the computer. (If the computer couldn't view it, then you'd need some sort of file recovery software and might not get the entire image back.)

Manuals for the FE-115 are available from the Olympus site: .

I hope this helps.

You can try to reset the camera back to factory settings to see if the flash will start working again. To reset: Have the camera in shooting mode - press the down arrow - camera will indicate reset or cancel - highlight reset and press ok - the camera will be back in factory settings - see if flash fires - if it does then fine - if you see a red flash charging icon blinking on the screen this is a repair issue and the camera needs to be sent to Olympus for service.

That sounds as if it may be a repair issue with the chip inside the camera that controls image processing. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair policy. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Screen is blank

You tell me that you tried new batteries. Have you tried a set of NiMH batteries? They are the best for digital cameras. Please try a set, preferably ones rated 2200 or higher. If this doesn't help, the lens could be jammed. Hang onto the batteries though, because they are rechargeable and can be used in anything that takes AA batteries.
