Olympus 770 SW wont turn on

Have checked that the battery is charged and we using it correctly, ie inserted correctly both in charger and in camera. Have used the camera successfully anumber of times and recharged and re-used etc. However overnight it suddenly wouldnt turn on after we charged the battery. Is it possible to lock the camera perhaps? has anyone had this problem? Same issue. I can get the menus to come up if I hold the button and the lens cover is open. Battery is fully charged. I even bought a new one.

SOURCE: cannot print pictures with dates

By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

SOURCE: olympus 770 sw lens cover not closing

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Hi

Sorry to hear about your issue with the Olympus mju 770 SW. There's a couple of things you can check and try, before thinking about a repair or binning the camera and getting a new model.

1. Check the contacts on the battery are clean?

2. Clean the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment are clean?

3. Is the charger actually charging the battery? Try another battery or see if you can test the existing battery with a multi-meter to check there is some power in it.

It is fairly common for chargers to fail, so it's worth checking out but don't go spending money on a new charger unless you know it will fix your problem.

Hope this helps

I have the same problem with my 770 SW. The funny thing is, some outlets in my house will allow it to charge, some will just make the light flash. I found your question looking for a better solution. Try all the outlets in your house with the charger, I know it sounds silly, but it works for me.

I have the stylus770 camera. It doesn't turn on when connected to the computer to charge it. please help


In order to charge the battery for the camera you need to use the supplied charger that came with the camera. The camera is not going to charge when connected to the USB port of the computer. Camera was not designed to be charged that way.

Stylus 770 SW Camera - causes Power Surge on USB port


Blown USB ports can happen. Most of the time, they still move power...like you can still charge devices through them, but the device won't be recognized. See if a hub will work.
