Question about Olympus FE-150 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus FE 150 digital camera shuts on and off repeatedly

I thought my battery was not taking a charge because when I charged it and put it in the camera, the camera lense opens and closes repeatedly and then shuts down - the battery light is red. I bought a new battery, charged it and I'm still having the same problem. The camera is only 2 yrs old and hardly used.

    I bought a new battery, I used 2 different chargers and the camera is practically brand new. Seems like I only paid $150 for the camera new, $94 to get it evaluated doesn't seem like a great value. Any other ideas out there?

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.

I have a olympus fe 20 how do i charge it? can i use the usb?

No, you cannot use the USB to charge it. Your camera uses a LI-42b battery, which looks like this:
You need to open the battery compartment, take the battery out, and put the battery in the charging unit. I'm not posting a picture of a charging unit because they vary, but generally it's just a small box that has a slot to take the battery, and plugs in to a wall outlet. There's usually a LED indicator on it, to tell you when it's charging/charged.

I'm afraid that if you don't have a charging unit, you'll need to get one, you can't charge the battery any other way.

I have a Olympus FE-340 that when I put the power on the lens goes in and out and then shuts off .

This sounds like a very low battery. If it won't charge up, then the battery may simply have come to the end of its useful life and need to be replaced.

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the...

Most likely the battery has been depleted. When you are not using you camera you should always recharge the batteries every now and then. This ensures that they will last longer. Try buying a new battery for your camera.

Olympus FE-330 won't turn on..... URGENT!

If it is a rechargeable battery, it may be bad. Start with that first. If your camera will accept standard AA batteries try those too. (just to test) Your 330 requires a LI42B or LI40B battery.
Check page 47 of your manual. Tells you about the battery. Your described problem sure points to a bad battery. Don't have the manual?? Download it here free.
Thats a nice camera you have.
