These cameras can't be charged via the USB because there is no charger built into the camera. You will need to buy a new charger.

The battery will not charge ,usb port with out the battery camera will not power up


This camera does not charge via the USB cable, the cable is used to download the photos to the computer.
This camera uses a recharageable lithium battery and the battery needs to be removed and connected to an external battery charger to be charged.
You can download a user manual from this WEB site.

Is it possible to charge my olympus fe-46 from my computer?


In a convoluted way. The FE-46 uses standard AA batteries. You may use either disposable alkaline or lithium batteries, or rechargeables. If you use rechargeables then you must charge them outside the camera. There are chargers that run from a computer USB port, and there are even AA batteries that plug into a USB port. However, you canNOT charge the batteries by connecting your camera to your computer.

I lost the battery charger of my olympus fe-320. Can i charge it using the usb port ?


No, you cannot charge the battery in the camera via the USB port. You need to use the LI-40C or LI-41C charger or equivalent.

One source for a replacement charger (along with a battery and a camera case) is

My Olympus FE-360 camera is dead. I only have the USB chord I use to upload pictures. Is that supposed to charge it? If it isn't charging it does that mean I need a new battery? I haven't used this camera...


No, the USB cord will not charge the battery. If anything it will drain it faster since the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

You need to use the supplied LI-41C battery charger.

Can i charge an Olympus fe-4000 with a usb cable connected to my computer?


No. The camera does not incorporate any charging circuitry. You have to use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery. The USB cable is strictly for transferring pictures and videos to the computer.

Can you trickle charge the Olympus FE-20 via the usb cable?


Very few cameras will charge through USB ports. This is only to connect to computer to access pictures. Your camera will not charge via USB. I suggest to many people that using cameras that take AA batteries is the best cameras to buy when traveling. Many camera owner fall victim to different voltage outlets when travelling.

I have the usb cable plugged into the computer to charge the battery and it will not work.


This is because this camera is not meant to be charged through USB at all. The camera battery needs to be removed from the camera and charged using the charger that came with the camera.

Charging


Usually the usb cable only provides the data signals to it. If you are using a 4 pin usb cable then the power isn't going to the cable and it won't charge it.
