Question about Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

C50 olympus power up

When I attempt to use my camera, two led by the viewfinder flash 10 times with a beep and it goes quiet/dead. That is all I ever get. It has done this since I left it hooked up to my computer overnight thinking the usb port will charge the battery. I've left the battery in the charger overnight several times so I think it's charged. the led blink and tone are loud so I believe the camera has full charge.

Re: c50 olympus power up

Is suspect the battery has been damaged Tell me more about the leaving in the USB port- this is not the normal way a battery is charged. Is it different for this model of camera?

Olympus E520 digital slr. Only auto setting is working? On other settings, live-view goes dark(?).

SLR cameras are meant to be used with the viewfinder, not live view. Live View on SLR's is a luxury that point and shoot users have come to expect, sadly. I suggest you start using the viewfinder and disregard the live view altogether, since it doesn't always give you an accurate representation of what the photo will turn out like, and it consumes battery power at a ridiculous rate.

Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom - always reads low battery and then "dies"

Safe way - Try using brand new and fully charged NiMh.

Not for novice - Battery contact points may need cleaning. Use contact cleaner with a cotton swab.

Do not try - Spraying contact cleaner or WD-40 in battery compartment.

Last option - Service center.

Olympus Camedia C-4000 Flash Problems.. Help Please!

The flash is malfunctioning and causing the camera to not work, the flashing lights in the viewfinder is the camera indicating the malfunction. Most likely it is a board that needs repair and that'll cost a flat rate minimum $160 from OLY.

Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old

I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

Try for a repair Mark but I feel that it is probably to be considered beyond economic repair - the price will be pretty near a later one
