Question about Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera

Camera will not power up

I have an Olympus Camedia C5060 wide zoom, when I turn the camera on it will not power up. Re-charging the battery did not help, bought a new battery, still no luck.

    when i hit the power button a little orange light comes on on the back of the camera and the lense comes out. i can halso hear a ticking sound then the light goes off, but the lense does not retract. nothing appears on the screen. i have tried to change the batteries, but none in the brand new 20 pack of Dollar General batteries ( I just bought them today specifically for the camera ) worked. i got the camera brand new and has worked all day but i turned it off because it was making a ticking sound, and tried to turn it back on, but it did what i described above. when i push the button that shows you the pictures it turns on and displays the photos and responds with all the buttons, then i tried to switch from the display back to the phototaking screen the screen turnes black, i hear the ticking noise and the same light comes on; but this time the light is green ; the lense comes out and the camera shuts down and the lense does not retract.

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!

My OLYMPUS C5060 WIDE ZOOM digital camera fell in to the sea, in its pouch, but still got slightly wet. Local service agents answer was: buy a new one. How can I open the camera? I have removed all screws...

Having been exposed to salt water this long they were right.There is probably a pin you need to remove with the back off holding the flash.It may have to be pulled out with needlenose pliers or it may be springloaded and need one of the ends pushed down.Spring loaded best image I can give.
'--=======--' The two ends are solid.The pin is spring loaded pushing out.The smaller tip is the part which pulls open and is spring loaded.The = is the pin main body.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Greg

AC Adapter Question

The C 5050 is what I have. It uses 6.5 volts DC input not AC. The polarity is positive center,negative surround. I am not sure whethere your universal is delivering that. Are you sure. Can you measure same or have someone tap the output and check it out? Is the plug area contaminated in some way? Good luck.
