Re: camera batteries drain quickly

Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.

Re: camera batteries drain quickly

Take the batteries out when you put it away or better still buy a camera with lithium ion batteries which are built in e.g. Fuji F20 - great pictures too.

Battery &charger specifications

In addition to the batteries provided with the camera, the following types of battery can be
used. Choose the power source best suited to the situation.
AA alkaline batteries/Oxyride batteries
The number of pictures that you can take may vary considerably depending on the battery
manufacturer and shooting conditions.
AA NiMH batteries (rechargeable batteries)
Olympus NiMH batteries are rechargeable and economical. For details, refer to the
instruction manual for your charger.
(Lithium battery packs (CR-V3) and AA manganese (zinc-carbon) batteries cannot
be used.
(Power consumption by the camera varies depending on which functions are used.
(Power is consumed continuously during the conditions described below causing batteries
to become exhausted quickly.
• The zoom is used repeatedly.
• The shutter button is pressed halfway repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the auto
• The monitor is left on for an extended period of time.
• The camera is connected to a computer or printer
(The battery life varies widely depending on the type of battery, manufacturer, shooting
conditions, etc. Because of this, there may be cases where the camera turns itself off
without displaying the battery level warning, or displays the battery level warning sooner than usual

Battery won't hold a charge

Buying recharable batteries will not solve the problem of the battery draining quickly but will help save $ by not having to purchase so many disposable batteries. Check your user guide to see what kind of batteries your camera will accept. Lithium ion rechargeable is the best if compatible. Lithium ion disposible (CRV3) will last a long time as a secondary choice if compatible. Some cameras drain batteries more quickly than others. Just a tip to help reduce the drain: don't use your LCD screen when unnecessary (such as scrolling through several of your pics in-between snapping pics).

How to recharge battery of Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

When you purchased the camera, there should have been a charge in the box (you got a lithium-ion rechargable battery with the camera, no?). You put the battery in the charger and plug the charger in the wall.

Drained batteries

Stop using this camera (Olympus FE-210), warn all your friends and relatives about this piece of junk, send the camera back to Olympus COD. Take the money you save from not buying more batteries for this camera and buy a decent camera from a reputable manufacturer.

No repair for this one I fear. This seems as it has an internal short and this will not be repaired.
