Question about Olympus Camedia D-580 / C-460 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Suddenly the batteries have started dying after 2-3 photos

This camera has worked fine for a couple of years. Suddenly, it won't hold any battery juice. I can put in fresh regular alkaline batteries, freshly charged NiMH, and even bought brand new rechargables, but I still can't take more than a couple of photos. Used to be I could take lots on one set of batteries. Nothing has changed that I am aware of, no water damage or anything. Any advice? thanks

    I appreciate this suggestion. All my web searches have turned up the same idea that in general lithium batteries are better, but I can't find anything that addresses a malfunction. Just switching to lithium batteries doesn't address the real problem which is that my camera USED to be FINE, and NOW has a problem. So, I really think there has been some sort of short or malfunction, which is what I am trying to get a handle on.
    Thanks though!

    We've had the same problem. . .since day one. It's gotten to the point when we open the lens, it just gets stuck there.

    Same problem on C460 Zoom. OK for first year or so. Now, after inserting new batteries, it dies after two or three shots. Rechargables die even quicker. Guess is that the camera power control is 'leaky'. Probably have to throw it away as it is now unreliable! Very disappointed.

My vivitar x345 wont hold charge


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.

Sony DSC-P73 auto power off in picture mode


Hello!

You may try using any another compatible Battery pack in the Camera to ensure if the issue is not causing due to the Battery. Actually, when the Camera is switched to the "Picture or Camera" mode then the power consumption increases spontaneously. So, if the Batter is not holding sufficient charge to cater the power need of the Camera in the Camera mode then it'll automatically turn off. However, if the issue persists with spare Battery also then you may try resetting the Camera to the original factory settings by pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds. Otherwise, it's required to get the Camera to resolve the hardware issues.

Camera won't turn on with new batteries or power cord


I heard from another posting on here and the answer, that someone took fine sandpaper and cleaned off the terminal ends of both battery and camera and blew out the dust particles from that before replacing the battery, then then camera worked. I have yet to try it with my Kodak camera that is 2 years old and suddenly died too! The batteries are fine and work in other cameras.
