Question about Olympus D-565 Zoom Digital Camera
Both lights in viewfinder started blinking indicating no, or low power. Replaced rechargeable batteries and still got the same. Camera would not open and could not view pictures already taken. Hooked up an AC adaptor to power camera and still get the blinking lights. Any hope for this camera?

SOURCE: AC Adapter Question
Check the polarity. Having a 5060 (fabulous camera in my opinion) I chose to buy a couple of extra batteries rather than go the adapter route. They are cheap at eBay, Tiger Direct and other places (I don't know what's available to you in Spain) , and give you added backup for a heavy day or two of shooting.

Are you sure you finalized the firmware upgrade procedure according to the instructions? This sounds a little like you pulled the plug a little too soon... Have you done it according to these instructions: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/OMfirm.asp And kept the camera connected until the update was 100 % complete? If you did everything right, try reseting the camera - take the batteries out for the day, and see if it helps. if you're back to step one(the reason you did the upgrade), try the firmware upgrade again. If still it doesn't work contact olympus, and I hope you have a valid warranty. Good luck

It is likely that your lens assembly was knocked out of alignment when you dropped the camera. When things do not line up inside the lens the whole unit cannot move in and out. This malfunction requires disassembly to fix, so you will have to get it to a professional for repair. There are providers online who can repair your camera, and also check with your manufacturer to see if they can service the camera at a reasonable rate. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I had the same problem but I fixed it by buying 2 rechargable CRV3 batteries and the charger. At the time such batteries were not common, so although I got a brand that I never heard of (CTA) and they have been great, They last a long time and power is no longer an issue.

SOURCE: Olympus E410 viewfinder problem
As far as I am aware, you can use the viewfinder OR the live view, but not both at the same time.
This is because a mirror has to flip up out of the way to reveal the sensor for the live view to work, and the mirror needs to be in the down position to reflect the image into the viewfinder.
Switch between the two modes and double-check if there is a problem.
Also try removing the lens from the camera and checking the position of the mirror. It could be that it has got stuck in the up osition.
Hope this helps!
