Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

C-8080 Turns off/on randomly..

Hello, My Olympus C-8080 camera has worked fine the last couple of years. A few weeks ago I had trouble getting it to power up, but then it worked fine. 2 days ago I could not get it to come on at all. Finally while just sitting, it turned itself on. I took a couple pictures, then off it went by itself. Sometimes it comes on and works, sometimes it comes on and goes right back off. Today I can't get it to stay on or do much of anything. The battery is fully charged (green light on charger) and I checked connections as well as did a camera reset. Any ideas?

Hi Galaxy,

Try running camera directly on DC from charger and see if it stays functioning.
If it does, they you either have:-
1) a faulty Lion battery
2) the battery detect circuit in the camera is faulty (reporting low battery and forcing shutdown)
3) the power switch on top of the camera may be leaky or partially collapsed
4) internal power supply circuit in camera has developed a fault.

Good luck...hope that the issue is the battery.

Hitachi 42HXT12U, It turns itself on and off at random. The tv is under a year old.


Fault with its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Compact Flash card unreadable by computer


Hi Craig Click,

CF cards are flash memory based technology and as such have the practical limitation of 500-1000 overwrite cycles before they can become unstable. I would suggest you have a card(s) which are reaching this stage in its life. Beg, borrow or buy another card to see if your luck changes....I suspect it will.

Good luck

Freeze Up


Sorry this post is probably way too late for fishi, but in case anyone else needs an answer; Yes. Return it to store. After carrying out a reset several times with the same result then unless there is a fault with the battery itself, the camera needs to be professionally serviced. Hope this helps someone :)
