    I was in the middle of taking pictures with a freshly charged battery when the camera froze up and everything shut off but the lens cover is still open. I replaced the batteries and memory card but it won't turn on at all. is there a hard reset button?

There could be a problem with the battery , the charger or the camera itself. I would recommend you send them to an Olympus service center location for evaluation.

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 $93.85 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.

if water got in the camera, you might just be out of luck. but i know one thing you might be able to try. if you can take the camera apart , so that you can see inside of the camera without breaking anything, you can take a hairdryer and try to dry out the water. make sure that the blodryer isnt set on hot because you might damage the inside of the camera.

Sp565uz how do I take the lens off


Please try to charge the batteries. Don't use AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) or NiCd rechargeable batteries. Even alkaline batteries, don't have the same capacity as the NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Considering the price of a new camera with the same possibilities, you could buy one for I think around $300. Diagnose in a repair shop could be between 50 an 100. If you could buy a lens it could cost anything between 10 and 400 dollar and to put it in could cost between 50 and 100 dollars.
My advice, if the batteries don't change a thing after charging, buy a new camera. The last 5 or 6 years the technology has improved immense. and the price of the camera's have dropped. (will drop even more after the holy days.

My vivitar x345 wont hold charge


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Wont turn on


Well to be3 a 100% about the battery I would replace it with one that you know or is guaranteed to work. Camera batteries can look OK from outside and be completely collapsed inside.

No Charge lights can indicate NO battery and if there is one inside then it is dead and registers as a no battery ( no charge light)

The red light blinks in very low state, but totally discharged it will not blink and wont blink again until loeft on chareger for about 3-4 hrs to overcome the low state.

Wont turn on


Its not getting enough juice from the battery. Get a new battery. You can only re-charge a battery so many times. Many times people ruin the battery by not fully charging and draining a battery. The battery that came with this cam has a memory. Get a new battery.

L 100 digital camera is not switching on though the battery is fully charged.


Try removing the battery for a couple of seconds then insert it again. Click on the power button, it should turn on and turn it off again to close the lens.
