Question about Olympus Camedia E-100RS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera will not power on with batteries.

I haven't used this camera in a long time and now I can't power up my camera with new NI-MH 2500mAh batteries or even any other ones also. I can power up the camera with the AC Adaptor and take pictures. I have tired to clean the contacts with an eraser. Is there an interal battery that might need replaced? I have tried just about everything that was said to do on this site for this camera. Just hoping I save this great camera without paying a fortune to repair. Thanks for your time. Jer

Re: Camera will not power on with batteries.

Well the camera as a internal fuse, and could be damaged, or could be just the powerboard.

I have a Canon powershot A1100is dig camera. When I try to turn it on, it reads need new batteries. even if I change the batteries. Sometimes it wont even turn on. Help

Do you using Ni-MH batteries? Canon cameras judge the battery is low power by the real-time voltage of the batteries. And the voltage of Ni-MH batteries are lower than Li-ion ones, so the camera will notice low power even there are new batteries. Try Li-ion ones and see is anything help. best wishes!!
If you will use of a special battery, please come to our online shop for digital camera batteries

My camera just does not seem to hold a good battery charge. I use fully charged batteries and this also happens with Duarcell too. I am only using the camera in the "on" selection.

Some digital camera **** the life out of batteries, especially the older ones, even when off. It stores info like date and time etc. I take the batteries out when I am not using it for a while. True it is a pain resetting the time but it saves the batteries. Also go for the top line rechargebles,

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.

Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Camera will not work after Ni-MH and Ni-Cd batteries used

Its not good for the batteries to combine different types but it shouldn't have affected the camera as the voltage they produce is the same. Try a couple of Eveready AA lithium batteries.

Can't use chargeable batteries

If your camera doesn't work with NiMH, then it's most likely that you have either one or more bad atteries, or your camera is defective. p. 6 from the user guide: "..Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods can become ?deactivated?. Also,repeatedly charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can cause them to suffer from the ?memory effect?. Ni-MH batteries that are ?deactivated? or affected by ?memory? suffer from the problem of only providing power for a short time after being charged. To prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them several times using the camera?s ?Discharging rechargeable batteries? function. By repeating this cycle several times, the temporary reduction in performance caused by ?memory? or ?deactivation? can be remedied and the batteries can be restored to their original performance levels. ..." Sorry i cant help you more..
