I can't turn the camera on anymore

One day it was working just fine and the next day I can't even turn it on. Nothing happens when I push the power button. I recharged the battery but still nothing. Please let me know if you have a solution for this. Thank you!

Re: I can't turn the camera on anymore

I dont have a definite solution, but I would;

- clean the power contacts on the battery and the camera with a moist Q-tip

- leave the battery out for a day or so, maybe more if you have time. Make sure the battery is charged again (maybe just put it on for an hour or so) and re-try.

Sounds like electrolytic capacitor dried up needs curing, which is power on capacitor and left it absorb some moisture in humidity on power. Some time a few minutes, hard cases may take a few days.

My Sea&Sea 860g will not focus anymore?

I realize most of these questions are kinda old, but I just fixed my Sea & Sea 860g focus problem and figured I should post what I did. The camera just stopped fucusing one day and I have tried everything, reinstalling the firmware, resetting the settings, playing with everything imaginable. Finally, out of frustration, and literally on my way to the trash can, I physically pushed the lens in about 1/2 an inch and turned it off. Since I had pushed it "out of gear" or something, the lens just floated free until I pushed it all the way in and turned it back on. Once It came back on, it must have recalibrated itself or something, the focus snapped in and now it works fine again... I had even emailed Sea and Sea for a fix and they said to just throw it out, nothing could be done, HA. Hope anyone else with this problem sees this, I know its very common for those camera.

Good Luck,

Camera stopped taking pictures

Same thing happened to me a while ago. I was in a panic. I turned it on and off several change. Finally, I turned the camera to the off position, took the battery out of the camera for about 30 seconds and put it back in again and it worked fine. No problem since.

Plz help

remove the SD Card and the batteries. Wait for half an hour and then insert two new batteries. Do not put the SD card in as yet. (Waiting for half an hour or more allows the camera to reset itself).

Now try switching on and good luck.

Olympus Not working period

I have the same camera - and almost exactly the same problem. It was working fine one day, next day not. I've done the battery thing - it's apparenty not the battery. Actuall, I have it a good "whack" with my hand and got it to turn on once, but don't think that's really very good for it in the long run. This camera is only about a year old - and I use it OFTEN.
