What type of Batteries does it use


Your camera can use two types of power either four AA's or two of the Olympus type CR-V3 batteries. If you don't have batteries for it now I'd suggest purchasing a four battery set with charger and an extra set of four rechargeable so you have a total of eight rechargeable batteries. That way you can be using a set of batteries while another set is on the charger.
Hers is a diagram of the battery set up for your camera.

There seems to be some kind of short and the camera runs thru batteries like crazy. I also need the cable that connects the camera to the commuter to transferphotos.


try replace your battery with a Lithium Ion, better if you bring your camera to best buy, walmart or circuit city show them your camera then look for the kind of battery i mentioned.

for the USB cable to transfer files, once you are in the store, look for a USB cable that loks like the on int the picture, this should not cost you more than $5

Tip

Olympus E-10/20


I have been on love with my Olympus e-20n since the day I bought it. Yes, it's only 5 mega-pixel but the SLR design and full manual functions out weigh the limited resolution. I was very disappointed when I tried to buy a replacement high capacity battery and Lithium Polymer 8400ah battery was not only discontinued but totally not available (except for some used ones on Ebay and I'm just not brave enough to buy a used battery)

So crafting a replacement became my Memorial Day Weekend project. One quick trip to Fry's Electronics later and I had the solution. A 6-cell AA battery holder, 6ea AA NiMH 2600ah rechangeables and a 9-volt battery clip with pig tail is all I needed.

Crack open the external battery add-on (looks like a power winder on a 35mm SLR) 4-screws on the botton, one inside the battery well and 2 under the rubber hand grip. Locate the battery connector and un-screw the RED and BLACK prime power leads from each side. Cover the connector with electric tape or an insulated cover, your done with it, forever.

Solder the pigtail 9-volt battery clip to the RED and BLACK leads (red to red and black to black, duh!). Extend the 9v battery clip outside the case and re-assemble the case.

The 6 AA-cell battery holder will fit nicely into the battery door cup and if you pack the vacant space in the battery well with sponge or an old gym sock the battery will not slide around.

Fill the AA battery holder with the rechargeable batteries you have freshly re-charged and hook up the 9v clip. Thats it, new life for the my old companion.

I've put my Olympus inside the U-box of my motorbike and I forgot to take it out the whole night, in the morning, I tried to switch on, it's not working anymore.


Maybe some water got in it. Take out the batteries and memory card. Use a Qtip to wipe inside those cavities. If you can, remove the screws and use the Qtip in any other area you can get to. Leave the camera apart in a dry space for a couple of hours. Re-assemble. Just an idea, but it works for cell phones!

Nimh batteries give low batt signal even when


the trouble with rechargable batteries is their voltage is low to start with even when charged. they only give 1.2 volts each instead of 1.5 volts from proper AA bateries. I use Energizer Lithiums in all my camers and they are great and last a long time. You can find cheap suppliers on eBay I use a site called 7dayshop.com in jersey (europe).

I am using normal aa batteries but they are only lasting for 2 pictures then i have to change them. Can you tell me how i can make them last longer please.,


We suggest Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries to our customers in our camera shop, and they love them! They last a really long time, and are well worth the extra cost. We sell loads of them, and I've only had good comments back, not one bad one. I hope this helps. If it solves your problem, please rate my solution favorably. Thanks

I am not getting the suff.no of snaps as batt is getting down for olympus( sp-350) . i have tried several type of AA 2500 mAh Ni-MH battery and purchased new LCD (simpex) charger.then also same.also when...


The problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe the ends of the batteries and replace them in the camera. This clears up the problem about 90% of the time -- I hope it works for you.

How do you reset the firmware on an Olympus E-410 digital SLR?


Hello coolforcats1, Go to the Olympus website, check support or downloads, check for your particular camera model, check for firmware fixes or upgades, then download and with your camera attached to your PC or Mac, follow the instructions from the website directions for a fix. Another is to have the Olympus disk with the Firmware on it. Another is to locate the reset button on the camera. Another method is to reverse polarity of your batteries for 5 seconds if your camera uses AA batteries. And last method (only for the experienced technician) is to open up the camera and look at the circuit board and find the reset button or internal battery.

Battery life expectancy


The D-535Z uses two AA batteries, and Olympus includes alkalines in the box. Unfortunately those won't last long and will end up in the trash. So I recommend buying a four pack of NiMH rechargeables (plus a charger), which gives you a set for the camera plus a spare. Unfortunately Olympus doesn't publish any battery life statistics for the D-535, so I can't give you any exact numbers. It depends a lot on how much you use the flash and LCD screen. Don't leave the screen on all the time, use it sparingly and you should find an increase in shot numbers. BMW
