Like power saver. It makes a beeping sound when you touch any function. Only get few seconds of menu screen and shows Blue screen with some sort of timer / clock / alarm images showing.

Re: 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 .

I have been having this problem with my Olympus mju1040 for quite sometime. Everytime i tried to charge the battery when the battery low signal is blinking or when the screen blackout, it will be fully...

Try charging it for an hour even if it is indicating that it is already full in 10 minutes. If the battery still gets drained after a few shots, then you should change your charger.

My Olympus Stylus 850SW won't turn on. Thought it was a drained battery, got new battery, then thought it was my charger. Bought new charger. Battery is fully charged, camera still will not turn on.


Good day,

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.

If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.

MY OLYMPUS SP 500UZ constantly kills batteries...any ideas? I can't go even an hour without replacing batteries most days.

The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion battery. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and they still work great.
Good Luck

My olympus isn't turning on

Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries.

I hope this works for you.

Wont turn on

Remove battery from charger. Unplug charger for a minute, then plug back into outlet. Reinsert battery and see if red LED comes on and STAYS on solid. If so, charge for about 5 hours.

Olympus Not working period

I have the same camera - and almost exactly the same problem. It was working fine one day, next day not. I've done the battery thing - it's apparenty not the battery. Actuall, I have it a good "whack" with my hand and got it to turn on once, but don't think that's really very good for it in the long run. This camera is only about a year old - and I use it OFTEN.
