Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera
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?
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.
