Re: My olympus c-160 Camera indicator light and display...
Stupid suggestion, but check to make sure the batteries are correctly inserted.
I would also suggest you use a pencil eraser to scour the ends of the batteries in make usre no oxides are preventing contact.
Also, I have gotten new (Chinese) alkalines that had failed internal contacts so no voltage was present at the terminals unless firm pressure was applied.
I guess that is less serious than lead in toys but . . .

Wow, Not even the manual knows this error. Must be serious. It can mean two things in my mind. The lens is obstructed some how. Inside or outside. Or the battery is not ok. If you can't see anything on the lens barrel outside, please try to charge the battery. The camera will shut down without warning, when the power is low. Be aware the camera won't work as you expect, when a USB cable is attached. Actually you are not allowed to connect the charger, when the camera is still switched on. Look how the charger reacts. See if the battery is charged as before, because if the signal battery full does not appear it could be you have to buy a new battery.
same problem here, firmware 1.1 has bug- junk piece of software develop by olympus, now i am very upset, sad, because i bought new camera & after 2 days this happens to me, can anyone help us, please please,
was just having the same problem the camera would not turn on... NOTHING.... battery fully charged was messing around with it opened battery door pushed in on battery while trying to turn on and it came on, guessing battery was not making complete contact added a piece of foil in door to push down on battery when door shut now working fine
Try removing the battery, let it stand for 1 hour (it should reset itself), insert the battery and configure your camera again. AND/OR Have a look at your manual and or the Olympic WEB site to see how to reset your camera.
aiya, sameish thing happened to me. i have the olympus FE230.. and i actually dropped it on the wood floor, so whenever i turn on the camera light is red, and the lcd is white. i can still take pictures though...
Check your user manual to see exactly what type of batteries you can use. Not all AA batteries will work in all digital cameras. Some require a specific brand of batteries or specific number, even though, they may be physically the same size. Hope this helps :)
Fair reasoning but I suspect incorrect. The screen remaining black- do you mean that it shows no menu item either? or are you getting those but no image? clarify. If you are getting nothing- is there a hint of 'shadow' images but not illuminated? It nothing at all then this is an indication of a connector/ main board failure. Lens not appearing could be the drive motor has stalled. But the two items together could also mean something much easier to resolve- The battery[s] is not delivering enough power. Clean the battery contacts. Make sure it is of the correct value as in the manual - if you have replaced it recently . If that fails it may be new camera time as the likely cost of a repair will be high.
When batteries are low and they are not used for a period of time, they can build up enough voltage to give a full battery indication. The batteries only had enough power to shoot one image. The batteries are exhausted and need to be replaced or recharged.
