Question about Olympus MJU 300 Digital Camera

Daughter plugged a phone charger in camera, now it doesn't work

We recently bought a new camera and gave this one to our daughter. She then plugged a phone charger into the mains connector "to charge it up" when I had already removed the Li-ion battery and put it on charge. Now the camera won't turn on and I fear she may have blown something inside. Does anybody know if this has happened before and can be easily fixed?
All advice gratefully received.

    The broken camera is our old one (about 3 years old) so the warranty has expired. The battery is fine as it wasn't in the camera when my daughter connected the phone charger to it. I am hoping she isn't the first person who has made this error and there is an easy (cheap) fix.

Hello there! thanks for using!!

I suggest that you try another battery or better yet a new one just to troubleshoot. Maybe a damaged occured with the battery. Hope that your camera would be fine. A short circuit happened of course if we use a different kind of charger that are not applicable or not compatible with. Pls check your warranty card as what you told that it is brand new and for sure it is still under warranty. We just hope that they will cover that kind of incident. I know it can be fixed but we don't want to waste any penny. so make sure that your warranty card is still with you.

hope this will help you! cheers!! don't forget to mark! thanks!

Dont have a user guide need to know how to take pictures

The swivel design is so cool that people think it's a camera when they look at it. Also has a flash which was a big selling point for me. The ringer is loud, the mp3 player is great and loud enough to set it on the console of your car and listen to music. there's also a ton of accessories and goodies to buy for this phone. there's tons of choices for covers, skins, silicone, everything! Call quality is amazing, voice to text is really neat. just push a button, talk and it will type out the text for you. Voice dialing is a great feature too. there's nothing NOT to like about this phone. i recently upgraded and gave the phone to my daughter. at first she didn't want it because it doesn't have the qwerty keyboard, but the word function works so well that it doesn't matter any more. she loves it too! i highly recommend this phone or any other samsung quality product!

Camera won't turn on unless charger attached.

Well in that case either the battery is faulty, or the charging circuit.. Only a new battery will tell. This is a common thing with batteries.

Blackjack cell phone AT&T won't charge or turn on

Go back to AT&T, or find somebody else who has a Blackjack II and put thier battery in the phone to see if this 'jump starts' it. I have had the same problem now 3 times. There seems to be a consistent issue with Blackjacks just not charging after a while, then the battery runs down and you can't turn the phone on again. 1st time AT&T put a new battery in mine and it turned straight on! 3 weeks later it happend again and they gave me a new phone AND another new battery. 3 weeks later the same thing has happened again with thenew phone. Never seen this happen with any other phone model.
