Hello.
When the two led's blink, that is telling you that the batteries are dead. Try replacing the batteries with FRESH ones and that should help.

SOURCE: How to recharge battery of Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

When you purchased the camera, there should have been a charge in the box (you got a lithium-ion rechargable battery with the camera, no?). You put the battery in the charger and plug the charger in the wall.

I had the same problem.
First the obvious, Is your charger actualy charging? Have you tried another Battery?
Sometimes the charger led turns green, when it actualy never charged the battery.
Jiggle the battery around to make sure it is seated securely. If in doubt find a friend with a Volt meter (VOM ) and check that the battery voltage is 3.7v to 4.0v when fully charged.
Assuming that you now have a fully charged battery. it's time for a little house cleaning. Use a Q-tip and Isopropal alcohol .99 cents a bottle. (Not Rubbing, it contains lanolin).
Gently clean the contacts on the charger and the battery. You dont need a lot. A little dab'l do ya. You can also clean the contacts on the charger with a pencil eraser if they look a little corroded.
Now it gets a little more fun. Look down inside the camera battery compartment and make sure the spring contacts are sticking up far enough to contact the battery, also make sure the battery eject spring is not bent and interfering with the contacts or the battery.
If you feel confident, gently, very gently, clean the contacts in the camera.
Only wipe towards the center once or twice. If you wipe the other way, you will have
cotton fibers wrapped around the contacts. not good ! If you do not feel confident cleaning inside the battery bay, Dont!....... send it to Olympus. I hope that does the trick for you. Nice taste in cameras by the way. Sumthin

This happened to me before and its because i put the battery in the charger the wrong way up. Make sure you put it in so that the side with OLYMPUS in it in big letters is facing up!

SOURCE: Olympus battery charger flashes red when battery is inserted.

@gminvite1
"Another way I found was when this happens, to push the battery to the point the light will turn on, when it starts flashing slide it off then back on. Do this a few times so it charges a little, then you should be fine to leave it on."

I tried to do this with my LI-10C Olympus charger and it worked..The blinking red light turns to solid red..Thanks for the info...Now I won't be bothering to buy a new batt.or have my charger checked..

Olympus all weather 760 errors 5f08 5f0a 5e02 Blue error message lens will not retract makes burring sound help please


The sound your camera is making, is probably the slipping from the gears, grinding them down, because something is blocked. Even when you can't see any blockage. Please don't leave the battery in, to avoid more damage. Contact a certified Olympus repair centre, or visit your dealer with the camera.

Trouble downloading pics from olympus 780 to mac laptop running sys 10.7.4


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

No charger


The camera doesn't come with a charger. It uses standard AA batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries then you must charge them outside the camera using a separate battery charger. Rechargeable AAs and charges should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

I have a Olympus -[mju:] 780. My husband, (soon to be EX) has taken my computer and with it all the software for my camera


Go to the manufacturers website and download the software you need for your camera for free. After downloading, install the software on the pc you want to use with the camera and then either connect to the computer with a cable or insert your memory card to view photos.

Maintain all-weather capability of my camera


The camera loses its weatherproof capability if the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover is open. Make sure that all the covers are closed before using the camera. •Wipe any water off the camera before changing the battery or card. •If the camera gets splashed, wipe the water off as soon as possible with a dry cloth. Salt water spray or droplets can cause damage to the camera if the camera is not wiped dry as soon as possible. •Do not apply excessive force to or attempt to peel off the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover. •If the rubber packing becomes worn or damaged, contact your nearest Olympus service center. (A charge is made for replacement of parts.) •If the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover contains dirt or sand, wipe it off before closing the cover, otherwise water may get inside the camera. •The rechargeable battery and other camera accessories are not weatherproof. Care should be taken when using the accessories.
