The main batter will not hold its charge when left in the camera.
I have 2 batteries that I rotate through the camera, keeping a freshly chrged one in my camera bag. Lately the freshly charged battery, either one, will lose its charge while in the camera. The camera is in the off position. It will lose its charge when not being used for a couple of days. When I switch to a fresh battery it shows a full charge, the camera performes normally, but will lose its charge when not being used. The chaged battery will hod its charged as long as it is not in the camera. It seems as though the comera, is slowly depleting the batter, even though it is in the off position.

Usually the lens closing is a sign that the battery is dying. If there's not much power left for the camera, it will first close the lens so it's protected before powering down. Make sure you have fresh batteries, fully charged. If the battery is going bad it may not hold a charge for very long but appear to be charged when you first intall it.
It takes around four hours for a freshly charged main battery to charge the internal backup battery. It you do that and it still doesn't charge it, you need a new internal battery. The fully charged internal battery in most of them will hold the charge for up to 3 weeks with the main battery out of the camera.
This actually a really common problem among Canon point and shoot cameras. There are a couple of methods that have worked well for others.
1. Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries. Then take a regular wooden pencil and place the eraser end down onto the battery contacts. Rotate the pencil to remove any corrosion. Sometimes a lack of proper battery contact will result in the low battery indicator.
2. Take a toothpick and wedge the tip under the battery contact and break it off. This will put more pressure between battery and contacts.
You can also try installing 3rd party firmware at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_in_Brief This is a bit technical and will probably void your warranty, but might be worth the try.
The power button has two purposes explanable;
1. A firm press and hold would shut down the entire device, where would be common feature for the camera to perform a system check to include the lense functionalilty.
2. A gentle press and release of the same power button should capture a snap shot only after the camera has been powered on, by the similar process as pressing firmly the power button
Pressing firmly the power button would shut down camera completely after a system check if only the camera was on.
Pressing firmly the power button when the camera is off would turn on the device by performing a system check also.
The camera when powered on would have an indicator light of ready to capture snap shots.
The camera would autoshut down when left on for an extensive duration without capturing snaps.
The instance of such would generate a camera check once more before powering off completely
The lense adds to the cameras feature capabilities of acquiring images. a function of the lense is capture an impressive image where the mechanism of drawing closer to the object is made possible by a moveable lense. The Olympus FE-340 Digital camera is powered by a battery requiring sufficient energy for a snap shot. keep in mind that, the camera can perform without the lense. However, the device is designed to automatically responded whenever the lense is required.
1 a solution to the camera is with the source of energy in which instance batter power.
2.Dislogde the entire power area consisting of battery, check for improper installation; reinstall the battery in appropaitely noticing the installation indications of power supply. Cover the battery compartment properly, and charger afterwords.
1.Charge the battery for the entire duration known of a full charge.
2.Unplug thereafter when the full charge indicator is visible.
3.Try on the device for improvement in situation by taking photo snap shots
What do you mean by it does not want to charge. The battries are bad. You must always charge batteries with the charger which came with it. If you chrged your batteries with a different charger than came with your camera, your batteries are damaged.
Depending on the length of service, it may be time to replace the rechargeable batteries. It is possible that the batteries wold accept the charge but thereafter not able to retain it, hence your described condition.
In some instances of removable batteries, it may be necessary to clean/scrape the battery contacts of the camera. They tend to have corrosion after some time and it would help to expose fresh metal. Additionally, you could also try to bend/stretch these contacts so as to exert more pressure on the battery terminals.
Digital cameras require vast amounts of battery power. First check to see if the camera settings are on the simplest or default settings. If you are using batteries from some of the big warehouse stores check the expiration dates. The next thing you can try are the batteries labeled specifically for digital camera use. They have stronger holding power for the abuse the digital cameras can put on a battery. they are more expensive, so watch your overall cost. Another way you could go is to use rechargeable batteries and keep rotating fresh, charged batteries in thed camera.
