Question about Olympus Camedia C-700 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera
How to remove and replace the battery compartment door on an olympus c700 digital camera
Does it beep or do anything other then turn off? what does it do in play mode? Does it have a good memory card in it? hold the memory door down tightly and try it. Akalines on these older smart media card type cameras just dont cut it they need ALOT more power then you think. NiMH rechargables are the only thing i would recomed using anymore. Dont listen to the tv NiMH are what you need. If you notice on the memory door when it open, there is a little plastic tab that stick out. This tab goes into a little slot on the camera, that slot pushes a button that tells the camera when the door is open and closed. These buttons can sometimes cause problems. So make sure the batteries are NiMH and the door is fully closed with some pressure on it. Also see what it does in playback mode. If it stays on fine in playback mode it may have a lens problem. The mechanism for the lens to move in and out could be jammed

If any digital camera is subjected to extreme humidity or just plain dampness it's a fairly ggod bet the battery terminals within the battery could become corroded. Check them before blaming either the camera or batteries. Quite often a vigorous rub of the battery terminals themselves with a sheet of printer paper(especially aa type)is enough to cure the problem. With most cameras you will need a torch to check the lower contacts in the camera and any corrosion will be easy to spot but even if you can't see any it's always a good idea to use a little piece of wet and dry wrapped around you index finger to rub the tops of the contacts. So don't forget, check the batteries AND the camera contacts. A good way to check to see if the batteries have had their day would be to pop them in a torch or other appliance after cleaning them to see if they work. BMW

The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.
