Question about Olympus Camedia C-700 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus C3000 fuse blown?

Hi, I connected the camera to a power supply which might have been set to a too high voltage. Now there is no reaction of the camera whatsoever (with batteries or with the correct power suppy). I believe that there must be a fuse somewhere in the circuit which might have blown. Does anybody know where it could be? The camera was working perfectly and I do not want to throw it off. Thanx, D.

    Hi, I do not know how to post the answer to diddydaveh's question (there are only two options):

    I measured the voltage and it was more than 50V. So, if there is a fuse it was blown. Dieter

    Hi diddydaveh,
    when the camera did not react upon connecting the power supply I measured the voltage, which was about 50V. So, clearly, if there is a fuse it will have blown. I do not know how this happened because the power supply appeared fine. Now, using the correct one there is no reaction of the camera whatsoever. Thanks for hints, D-E

I'm afraid that I think your camera is now 'unrepairable' your last option is now to send it back to Olympus, or a camera repair shop for a formal checking and report. If you are insured for accidental damage on your home insurance you may be able to claim thDave Harpere replacement on that if the camera proves to be totallt gone - and they may want a report on it. Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.

Finepix 500 camera digital


Sorry to say there are no user replaceable fuses anything to replace yourself if you used the wrong AC adapter/charger on your Finepix 500 digital camera.

It's most likely the internal voltage regulator was blown out on the main power supply board inside.

If the camera is still under factory warranty or if you bought the extended warranty you can get it repaired most likely for free depending on the fine print of the warranty itself? Usually it covers everything.

What was/is the normal voltage rating of the CORRECT charger that you failed to use, and what is the voltage rating on the WRONG charger that you used by mistake?

I might be able to decipher how much possible internal damage was done based on that?

Let me know?

Best regards,
