This happened to me before and its because i put the battery in the charger the wrong way up. Make sure you put it in so that the side with OLYMPUS in it in big letters is facing up!

Battery charger flashing red


Although the manuals nothing says about flashing red light on charger, my best guess is the battery is defect.
Try to remove the battery several times and start the charging again and again. But when after a few attempts the LED starts flashing again, you better buy a new battery. When you don't use the camera for a longer period, make it a habit, to charge the battery every 3 months or so.

My new olympus stylus 850sw is not working. The flash settings do not seem to work, and all the pictures turn out either really dark, or a bright white screen. I've altered all the settings, and nothing is...


You could have a problem with the board of the camera. I hope you did not drop the camera. If what you say is happening try to restart the computer of the camera by removing the main battery. It also has a reserve battery and I suggest you remove that too. In about an hour put the batteries back and see if the camera has reset itself. If it does not work I hope you applied for the extended warranty and just send it back to the camera shop if they handle it or directly to Olympus. Good Luck

I have an Olympus 850sw and each time I turn it on it asks to enter the date and time. Why is that?


Most of the cameras with a date time clock have a secondary internal power source like a small watch type battery some point and shoot cameras use a storage cell which takes power from the main battery. This means when the main battery looses power the camera clock will hold a setting for about 1 day or 24 hours. To keep the camera clock set you need to keep a charge in the main battery. Here is a screen shot from the manual explaining this function.

My Olympus Stylus 850SW won't turn on. Thought it was a drained battery, got new battery, then thought it was my charger. Bought new charger. Battery is fully charged, camera still will not turn on.

Good day,

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.

If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.

Regards.

I think i have put the battery in the wrong way and i cannot close or get the battery out


How about needle-nosed pliers? Or something more radical...super glue something to the bottom of the battery and when it sets, pull it out.

Recharchable battery will not charge olympus 850sw


You can download a manual at this site.

It sounds like your battery is dead. How long have you had this camera? If the battery is not charged properly it will cause the life time to be cut in half or more. When charging these batteries you have to let them die completely before charging. This could be a major problem if your in the middle of taking pictures. I have two batteries for all my cameras that way I always have one on stand by. Hope this works. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Battery empty message when connecting olympus sw 1030 to laptop


Your recharged battery may be weak. May be time to replace.
If the battery power runs out while the camera is connected to a computer or printer, the image data may be lost or damaged. It is recommended that you
use the AC adapter. Do not connect or disconnect the AC adapter while the camera is connected to a computer or printer.Do not remove or load the batteries or connect or disconnect the AC adapter
while the camera is turned on. Doing so could affect the camera’s internal settings or functions.

When i turn on camera, it says battery empty


ok this happpened to my old kodak once. actually, several times.what i ended up having to do was give it to a mechanically inclined friend to fix. as it turned out, some cable had been fried after one of the times i dropped the camera. so you can either:
  1. get rechargable batteries to save money
  2. buy a new camera
  3. contact a mechanically inclined friend/relative/co-worker

hope this helped!
