Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

Olympus X 775 Camera Blank Screen

I recently purchased an olympus X 775 digital camera. It worked well for a while. I used duracell AA batteries in it and this worked quite well however I thought that the batteries ran down to quickly, so I decided to purchase royovac rechargeable batteries to use with the camera.
After a while, after taking a picture with the camera, the screen then goes blank. I would have to take the camera off and then put it back on a few times for the display to work so that I could take another picture. Then after I take the next picture, the screen would again go blank.
My husband took the camera from me to download the few pictures that would have been captured on it and he informed me that the pc was not recognising the camera.
Could you please advise me as to what the problem could be with the camera and what is the solution to repairing it.
Thanks in advance

Unable to locate Olympus (B-01 4PE) Ni-MH rechargable batteries, for my Olympus D-395 digital camera. Unable to locate CR-V3X1 or LR6X2 at any retailer.

You don't need to use Olympus batteries. The D-395 uses two standard AA batteries, either disposables or alkalines. You should be able to find AA batteries at just about any department store, drugstore, electronics store, office-supply store, or supermarket.

My olympus digital 800 have a blank screen when im taking picture how can i fix it....

I recently experienced a similar problem with my Stylus Digital 800 where I got a black screen everytime I took a photo. The shutter could have been stuck in the closed position. This problem developed five years after I purchased the camera. I replaced the lens assembly (p/n VJ 946700) with a new one from Olympus Parts and this solved the problem.

I've actually had this problem myself.

Use NiMh bateries - and a standard plug-in charger for them. It works out cheaper than "proper" batteries for the camera, which is just a moulded block version of the same thing.

The camera monitors the battery level - and expects the results from NiMh. Stick to the mid range Ah, as the larger ones also cause problems.

Samsung S500 beeps and turns off when i hit shutter

If the Olympus is using the exact same batteries as the Canon, there is a high chance that the problem is with the batteries.

Red Flash mark while taking photo

It sounds to me like you are not waiting for the camera to charge the flash when turning the camera on or between shots. It seems you are using 1700mAh batteries and most modern digital cameras are better off using 2500mAh batteries. Your camera was released in September 2006 so it is considered "modern". With 1700mAh batteries, your flash (warm-up) recycle time time will be rather long or the amperage may not be enough to fully charge the flash unit. I highly recommend Duracell 2500mAh rechargeable batteries.

Screen is blank

You tell me that you tried new batteries. Have you tried a set of NiMH batteries? They are the best for digital cameras. Please try a set, preferably ones rated 2200 or higher. If this doesn't help, the lens could be jammed. Hang onto the batteries though, because they are rechargeable and can be used in anything that takes AA batteries.

Battery life expectancy

The battery life of AA alkaline batteries varies according to the manufacturer and power rating. Alkaline batteries can provide up to 100 shots with typical usage. Olympus NiMH batteries (B-01 4PE) provide approximately 250 shots per charge and can be recharged 300 to 500 times. Olympus recommends the use of CR-3V batteries or NiMH batteries. Olympus sells an NiMH Battery set which includes a charger and set of 4-NiMH batteries. You can purchase this through Olympus dealers or through the Olympus Emporium (
