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.

Ex-s770 start to turn on then turns off


hi the problem is going to be with the lense motor jaming and not letting the lense come out all the way to switch the camera on to take pictures what should happen is the lense should come out all the way the go in just a little bit so that it focuses it does this so that it resets the lense for when the screen comes on.
If the camera has been put down with the lense out and any pressure has been put on it and put the lense out of line then this will cause the problem your having.
But the even bigger problem is their is no way of repairing it as most shops dont repair the smaller digital cameras so the chances of getting someone to look at it is a bit remote.
The only thing you could try is when the lense comes out try and pull it gently a bit further and see if that lines it back up as their a sensor on it so that when the lense comes out it switches the camera into the mode to take pictures but you can acess the pictures with the lense in so you know the batterys fine and that the circuit board is also fine.
It just the lense i know you cant get replacement parts for your make and model the only spares you can get is batt and cards so gently pull the lense if you can you cant damage it anymore than it is anyway can you.
Let me know how you get on ok.

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.

Hi,
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.
