Question about Olympus Camedia E-100RS Digital Camera

1 Answer

It doesn't turn on

My E-100RS is just plain dead. I used it the same way as I always do and then I turned it off. Next day I pick up the camera and.. it wont turn on. I suspected the batteries and recharged them. The batteries are Olympus Camedia Ni-MH 2100, rechargeables. I've measured them and they all have 1,2V. I tried to plug in an AC adapter but nothing happens. Checked the batteries contacts as well as the camera's and they are perfectly clean. I really love this camera. I have it for 3 years now and I've taken thousands of pics with it. It's a superb camera and I'm really upset with this. If anyone already had the same problem or an ideia to solve this issue, I would realy appreciate it. Thx in advance.

Screen went black, except for narrow band at top

If your camera is not dead, It is surely dying. Perhaps just a flat cable lost connection inside your camera, But more likely the electronics is on the end of life. My DX7590, started to act strange a few year ago, but I managed to shoot pictures still. I could not look back what I had shot, but I still made lots of pictures, till also shooting was impossible. (I could get the pictures from the memory card with an external card reader on my computer. My next step was again (a better) compact, but since over 2 years now I'm using a DSLR. I have learned a lot about digital photography with my Kanon camera's.

I Dropped My Camera In The Water for a Few Seconds And I Tried To Turn it On And It Doesn't Work Its a Nixon Touch Camera

Hi, Sounds like you may have fried the camera by trying to turn it on, your best bet would be to put the camera in a bag of rice for a few days to see if that'll dry it out, if after that it won't work still the camera's unfortunately dead.

Just bought a usb cord charger for my nikon coolpix s203 and its been dead fir a couple of days and I wont turn on

You left your camera on for a couple of days? I'd think your batteries are completely drained. The S203 doesn't charge batteries via the USB port. Try charging the batteries overnight using the supplied MH-63 charger.

If that doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we'll go on from there.

I got a used Coolpix s630 camera and it turned on the first day I got it, but the next day when I turned it on, the screen was all white with the words "Battery Exhausted" written in blue, and...

Hi there! It sounds like you need to charge the battery. Since you bought the camera used, it may not have come with all the necessary accessories. If you don't have one, you will need to purchase a charger that is compatible with the battery in your camera. The battery model for your camera is Nikon EN-EL12. If you do an online search for "Nikon EN-EL12 charger" you can find many for sale. You may also need to consider the possibility, again since this is a used camera, that the battery is just dead. This happens with rechargeable batteries--they are only good for so many "cycles"--the series of charge, use, recharge. You can find cheap replacement batteries by doing an online search as well.

I hope I answered your question!

I bought a Lexar 8GB Compact Flash Card for the E-100RS

Check your manual to see if your camera is able to handle a card that large. Also, go to the manufacturer's website to check for firmware downloads.

Screen is always white. Will record picture, but plain white also

The image sensor (CCD) is dead. This is a known manufacturing problem and may be repaired at no charge, even though the warranty has expired. Here's a link to a detailed explanation;

Using up batteries in two days

if you are using "AA" size, do NOT use typical alkalines in your camera, they die too fast. Buy rechargable NiMH batteries and a charger at Walmart or somewhere. These will hold a charge longer for you. Also be sure to turn off teh camera when not shooting because the camera is always draining battery life when "on."

Cemara is dead

This may sound odd, but I read this somewhere. Put the camera in a bag of rice overnight. Rice is a good dehumidifier. Take it out the next day and turn it on.

E-100 generic AC Adapter?

I doubt you can use 300 mA adapter,because Oly C2100 needs 2000 mA at 6,5V. E100RS construction seems to be very similar.
