This may be a repair issue with the sensor that is located behind the front sliding lens cover. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair policies and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

When opening lens barrier camera will not switch on.


The problem you are describing is a problem with the sensor that is behind the sliding lens cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Flash


Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera or charging the flash. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Won't hold a charge


what rechargeable batteries are you using and what's your method of charging?

If your using a dock for charging - make sure you have the battery pack kodak kaa2hr otherwise the dock won't charge it

if you're using a separate charger - it's ok to use other AA ni-mh

please check the age of your batteries as well.. batts, even rechargeable eventually wear out - they can last up to 300 charging cycles and a year or a little more than that is enough for you consider buying a new set

if you say that you barely use the cam, batteries still deteriorate through time

Help with s630 Digital Camera


Rechargable batteries actually do not recharge the 100 times advertised. After maybe 10 times they are reduced in capacity noticably. For instance, new alkaline batteries will last me maybe 60 pictures, however the rechargables are only good for about 5. To test this try taking out the batteries, and put back in before you wish to try them, also turn off the flash if it is not needed.(flash uses a lot of power)

Polaroid Change Battery ?


to answer your question on charging your camera with your pc you can if you have the drivers installed on your computer it will let it charge through the usb. as for your second question about being able to replace your cameras battery: well the answer is that it's not possible to unless you either send it to the company to replace it should or when it fails. they will charge you a fee if the camera is out of warranty or the alternative is basically opening the camera and finding a similar battery. should you decide to open your camera than this is the possible solution that i came up with for replacing the battery.

Screen works in playback mode but turns off in camera mode as if batteries are going dead.


For some reason, Fuji does not emphasize that if your batteries get low, this is what happens. You just need recharged batteries or new batteries. Be careful with rechargables--before recharging them when this happens, you first have to drain them using the discharge mode of your camera. Then they will take a complete charge. (Good for some 300 charges or so, I believe.) But if you don't discharge them first, they will take less and less of a charge, and last shorter and shorter. If you use regular batteries, they might not last for 50 pics before running out of juice.

Olympus mju 410- Orange lamp flashing


I had this happen and fixed it by removing the battery and leaving it out overnight and making sure it was fully charged - the next day battery inserted and it was ok. Prior to inserting battery I opened shutter cover and help down shutter release to try to drain any residual power. - Worth a try.

Polaroid izone 300 battery


From what you say I imagine this is built into the case with no opening to allow removal. So that it is recharged in situ. It that right. If so Polaroid is the only place to go- unless you can open up the camera to see what the battery is like. I imagine that in fact it can only be a standard type of battery but perhaps modified to fit he Polaroid housing. Have you actually checked Polaroid Tech Support Team re this

Ian, It's not a solution I'm afraid, but I have the exact same problem as you had. What's worse, I followed the exact same methodology as you did and now my camera doesn't work either. Unlike you though, I own it, so have nobody to answer to. Wondering how you got on with yours? Did you find a fix, or take it to a repair shop in the end? Sean
