Question about Olympus Camedia C-3040 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't turn on-has new, freshly charged batteries with polarity correctly oriented.

I have an Olympus digital camera that is about 6 years old and has had very little use. It won't turn on. I have installed new, charged, AA batteries according to the instruction book and it still won't operate. I no longer need the camera but want to donate it to a charitable organization. What can I check on to trouble shoot the problem? Jim

My Olympus Stylus 7030 won't focus and shuts off when I try to zoom.


If the rechargeable 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% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My camera won't charge, and won't turn on. Should I assume I need a new battery, or is there a problem with my camera?? It's only about 2 years old. Not sure what to spend money on...


If you can't neither charge the battery through USB nor the wall charger, I would advise to first replace the battery. If that does not help, it will be difficult to tell if it's worth repairing or replacing the camera.

Olympus c-8080 will not power on, batteries were charged one new tried both but press power and nothing happens


Either the batteries are completely shot (shorted out) or the orientation of the batteries is incorrect. Make sure they are facing the correct direction. Otherwise, you'll need to take your camera to a repair shop for troubleshooting. In the case of a consumer-level camera like this one, you probably will end up with a repair estimate that would exceed the value of a new camera. Good luck!

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

Regards,
Jacob

My Canon Powershot S51S Digital Camera will not turn on


Obtain 4 new alkaline batteries. Do not use rechargeables, even if you believe they are fully charged. IT WILL POWER ON.

Of course, check the battery polarity orientation.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My olympus sp-310 camera shows empty battery but I have a new charged batterys in it


Are you sure you put them in with the correct polarity facing the right way. Its a common mistake.
Also try a "known" set of batteries just to make sure.
Good luck

Olympus FE 150 digital camera shuts on and off repeatedly


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.
