Question about Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera is eating its batteries!

I've had a olympus camida digital camera for two years now and it just began having this problem with the batteries. Lately, my camera has been going through to double A batteries every single day when usually they could last for a couple of weeks. Is there a way to fix this problem, or is my camera just messed up?

Re: my camera is eating its batteries!

No, its the fact that batteries nowadays are getting less value for money, the best thing to use is rechargeable batteries, as they are more powerfull and last probably twice as long as normal batteries.

I have an Olympus FE-48/X-44 purchased in January this year, I've had problems with the batteries although fully charged, showing a red battery sign within minutes (low battery) I have tried many...

Hello everyone I phoned olympus on 08001114888 and they said to go into Settings then 'battery type' and chose either alkaline (normal) or NiMH for rechargeable - problem solved!! Not in instructions!!! Previously could only take about 6 photos without 'battery empty' message or the lens going in and out as above. This SHOULD sort out your problems so you can keep the camara :)

Even after putting a new fully charged battery camera shows battery empty

The reason you are still getting this error despite the fact that you've placed a new fully charged battery means that the battery is not compatible with the camera. The fact that it states this is because the battery isn't capable of handling the Olympus camera. I would suggest for you to buy a recommended battery pack by Olympus, or a rechargeable battery pack to avoid these errors.

I recharged the batteries (Ni-MH) for my Olympus Camedia 2020, but still the camera will not turn on. Do I need new batteries? Where can I buy them?

Firstly check your charger. I was having problems with my batteries packing up after about 1 hours use. Now I only charge 2 at a time (its a 4 battery charger) and the problem is no more.
There is a limited life on batteries, check how old they are and if you've had them more than 3 or 4 years, I suggest you buy replacements. John

My fe 230 battery doesn't last long

Unfortunately, all digital cameras with zoom and flash eat up batteries pretty fast. The best thing you can do is buy backup batteries, and have them when you have some serious shooting to do. Also, rechargeable batteries don't last forever, and start losing energy after awhile. You can order batteries at a great price by shopping on ebay. Good luck!

Olympus sp 500UZ digital camera: the camera eats batteries.

Yes. Like all rechargeable batteries they don't last forever and four years is longer than I'd expect.

Replace them with new batteries. You need a 3v lithium ion CR-V3 and if you're in the UK I highly recommend buying them from the Small Battery Company, but they are widely available. Avoid generic "no-name" brands as good quality examples are not very expensive.

Please rate my answer if I have answered your question satisfactorily.

Olympus E-500 flash smelling like burnt plastic

You should contact Olympus about this.

Olympus have had a recall on some older 35mm film cameras for problems with the flash circuit.

Please see -

Hope this helps,
