Question about Olympus Camedia C-60 Zoom Digital Camera

2 Answers

Will not power on

When I slide the cover over, it does not turn on anymore. No ding, no lights, nothing. I had misplaced the battery charger, and replaced that, also got a new battery and charged it up. Neither the old nor new battery will make it power on, though both are fully charged. No liquids have entered the battery compartment, it has not been dropped on anything but thick carpet (and worked a while after that happened). There doesn't appear to even be dust in there, and nothing is loose or broken that I can see. I am desperate to get this fixed because I need high resolution images for my ebay sales- I can't afford to get a new camera- so whatever I can do to get this fixed ASAP I will do. Up until this unexplained malfunction, it's been the best camera I've ever used so I am very frustrated.

    Removed the sliding lens cover to see if that was the problem- manually flipping & holding switch to no avail.

    I am assuming it's out of warranty already. Would someone who has an electrical engineering degree and the equipment be able to fix this? How would I go about getting a replacement fuse? Or is that not possible?

    Thank you. If that is the problem and it works I will LYK.

I cannot find the fuse online. I think you need to open it up, identify the fuse, and then take it to an electronics store to see if they have a suitable replacement. If they don't, try an electronics/camera repair shop. Presumably any place capable of making such repairs knows where to get the parts, and will likely be able to sell you one. They may charge twice what it's worth, but fuses are cheap to start with, and it beat paying someone to repair it.

It is likely that the internal fuse has blown. Sometimes they just go for no apparent reason. The fuse requires soldering to replace, so it is best to find a shop to do it for you. The cost would be $89 at my shop and probably similar elsewhere.

    Someone with electronics experience may be able to perform the repair. The trouble is that the fuse is located on a circuit board inside the camera. I do not have specific information on this model although I know it is yellow in color and located on the DC-DC converter board. The replacement fuse can be found on a site such as digikey.com. The camera will need to be taken apart, the fuse located, appropriate part acquired and soldered into place.
