Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

2 Answers

Won't power on

Was getting a little iffy about powering on & then failed completely. Recharged set of batteries tested in a second 5050 work OK. Contacts in camera spotless and batteries making good contact as far as I can see. So I suspect the switch itself has failed: is the mode dial assembly dismantle-able so that the power switch can be fixed? Is it likely to be fixable? I know how to remove the mode dial assembly. I have dismantled & repaired other cameras before & have suitable tools for the job so, please, no suggestions about taking it to an "authorised repairer" (totally uneconomic!).

    Thanks Pishta68 - I knew the assembly was replaceable (I posted a link to a HOWTO for this elsewhere on the site); what I wondered was whether it was possible to dismantle it & repair it! They're available on eBay OK but always from the US: by the time you've paid S&H & import duty & VAT, it's cheaper to buy a whole secondhand camera :{

The mode dial is replaceable, it is usually about 50 buck on Ebay and its pretty easy to replace. I actually had to repair mine with a small screw as the top popped off. Just remove the back and you can see the mode dial and its ribbon cable. look up c5050 capacitor and youll find a few sites that show you which screws to remove to get the back off (its 7 I believe, 2 under the flash hot shoe, two on the bottom, one on the USB side and 2 under the memory door)

Very secretive these camera folk about their stuff I guess you will simply have to fumble and hope what you find is repairable with what you have because parts are yet another issue.

Does the power cord not work? Did your laptop battery completely die and won't hold a charge? Anything happen to it recently like hardware/memory installation or did it get dropped? No power outages or lightening strikes?

The low battery alarm is sounding for both the console, AND the remote - which I do not have. The ADT people can't come out for another week. How do I silence the beeping? I turned off the status beeps...


The Simon 3 supervises the panel battery and when it's bad or the a/c has been out for a long time..will likely have to charge the battery. A problem arises where the keypad unit will not acknowledge that the battery has been recharged/replaced without you doing a basic power cycle.
Whenever this panel battery is replaced in a Simon 3 (worn out or depleted from no A/C (power-outage)) you should disconnect the A/C adapter, install the new or recharged battery properly and hear the panel tell you it's ok..."..simon ???? is OK.." and THEN plug in the A/c adapter. Assuming the panel is not damaged..it will talk when a suitable battery is installed with the A/c out. If it doesn't talk..check the battery with a test meter. Voltage over 6 volts(approx) is required to make it talk.
Of course, after a total power cycle you will have to set the clock.

Remotes(key fobs) aren't usually supervised (as they are carried away from the site) so it's unlikely it's referring to a key fob low battery. Might you be talking about a remote keypad or device in another part of the house or garage that may have low batteries..finding it and checking the batteries will clear the second part of your beeping.

The phone won't take a charge. The red light comes on indicating that it is charging but it doesn't. What's the deal?


Try this.. as it works for me on my GzOne Rock..

Connect to the charger just long enough for the screen to power on, then immediately disconnect the charger before it goes into charging mode. . -- It should power up and be ready for use.in a couple seconds.

I have found that only when the battery gets completely drained, that the Gzone Rock often will not power back up on it's own, even though the battery has been successfully recharged.
By connecting the to the charger it will initiate the boot-up of the phone - but you must remove it before it displays the charging screen again, otherwise it still won't come on and boot.

I don't know why, but this method works for my GzOne Rock every time.

Hi in my apc es 500 the amber and green light is alternatively flashing and my ups is not working on battery power it is shutting down automatically plz help


Batteries in the UPS typically last 3 to 5 years and it depends upon several factors. including the number of times the unit must go on battery power and environmental conditions. There are usually several batteries in the UPS and while the battery voltage may show 13 volts, this may only be a float charge/voltage and a true indication of the battery voltage and condition requires the batteries to be tested under a load. There maybe one battery in a set of batteries that is faulty and causes the whole battery system to fail and indicate a battery fault.

These lower powered and cheaper type UPS are switch over types, when the mains supply fail, the UPS switches over to the battery and inverter in milli-seconds which then supplies mains power. A faulty inverter circuit and or flat batteries won’t deliver standby power when the mains supply fails.

I have a notebook that can't power up...


Its one of two things. Your battery has failed or your power supply. Have you tried taking the battery out and powering up the notebook?

No power


As far as a reset button is concerned you can hold down the power button for a few seconds to turn the power off completely and then power it back up.
If your having power issues and you have a new power adapter thats known working you can try disconnecting the power take out the battery leave for a few seconds then re-insert plug in power and try again.
If this fails try starting just with battery power, if this fails try taking out the battery and attaching just the power adapter and starting up.
Also check that the battery is getting charged there should be a light on the notebook that tells wether its charging.
If this all fails you may have damaged the power adapters connection to the notebook when you bumped it. Hence the battery cannot get recharged to start up.
Let me know how you go.
