My Olympus FE-310 has battery problems!

Hello, i bought my Olympus FE-310 Camera Least year, but everytime i try to turn the camera on it says batteries are dead, so i bought new batteries and the promblem still continued with different brands of batteries. The Camera is not even a year old, and i've this problem over a month thinking it would fix its own problem. Now i have no camera that will work and seriously this is ridiculous! Any tips that might help?The camera will not turn on. I have replace the batteries but it simply will not turn on.

In my opinion, camera got problem in power supply section. Power supply section is built on main board and camera boards are just replaceable.
If you Olympus FE-310 is still under warranty or has no warranty, you should contact Olympus Customer Support / service center for fix as they only have replacement boards.
Thanks.

Hi!

Your problem is with electrical contacts between batteries and camera. Please clean the contacts of your camera's battery compartment

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem could possibly be:

  • internal electronic fault (hopefully not); or
  • camera's battery contacts are corroded. It may be necessary to clean/scrape to expose fresh metal. In some instances it would also help to slightly bend/stretch the camera's battery terminals/connectors so that they exert more pressure to the batteries.
Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Try using rechargeable batteries.Unless date coded, you don't know how long batteries have been on a shelf, and with rechargeables, you know that the batteries are charged (provided they have not been charge cycled too many times.).

I have the same camera and it kept saying low battery. I bent the thin metal tabs out of the battery door and now they are making contact with all different brands of batteries.

No sound when video taping


Hello beauknows,
I am a bit confused, is your digital camera fe 310 or fe 4000? If it is fe 310, it DOES have speakers. Go to setup, sound settings and make sure the volume is ON.

My Olympus FE-310 has battery problems!


I have the same model and I sort of took a page out of Solution #2.
I don't have electronic technician experience so I took one main insight: The Poor Design of the Conduction in the bottom cover.
Here's what I did: I took some Copper Wire (mine came from the wire you use to hang paintings) and some Aluminum Foil.
Next I wrapped the Copper Wire with the Foil. The piece was roughly slightly bigger than 1/2 of a Postage Stamp.
Then I inserted this metal square over the batteries and closed the cover.
I found that I could take more shots without the camera saying Battery Empty.
See if this works. So far it's touchy but it's been taking more photos than before.
