First you should try to charge the battery in an external charger.
Not having the camera in my own hands, it is difficult to say, if anything or what could be wrong. Check all contacts, all connectors if they are clean and shiny. If nothing is bent or has a dent. If contacts are not shiny, try to clean them with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools in or even close to a camera.
Look careful, because just a very small piece of paper, can isolate a battery complete.
If the computer does not recognise the camera, it also could be the software fr the camera is corrupted or not installed correct on the computer.
Try to work out one thing at the time.

Success

SOURCE: Fe-310, only used a few times, kept protected, one

Short answer - yes.
Manufacturers have become very good at making products that are reliable for exactly 1 year.
Usually it's small components that have a deffinate shelf life.
I would first check that you are using the correct battery for it. Even if it looks like it takes standard AA's - they often will only work for original spec rechargable blocks.
If this does not solve it - write a letter to Olympus saying how dissapointed you are with their product.
They may offer you a good deal on a repair hopefully.
Unfortunately Sony and HP are even worse - HP and lexmark printers now stop working after a period of time - telling you to buy more ink - even though you still have plenty.

SOURCE: Olympus fe 4000 - when plugged into the computer doesnt work

Is the computer or the camera telling you the battery is bad? If it's the computer, you might have some bad pins on the camera, or your usb cable may have a problem with it. If the camera is reporting this on it's screen, not sure what the problem is there. I would instead, just transfer the pictures to the computer via a card reader through the USB port. Check your printer- many printers these days have memory card slots on them, and you can transfer pics to the computer through them.

SOURCE: my olympus tough tg-310 got wet inside with salt water form the beach now it won't turn on please help.

There is very little that can be done, salt water will corrode metal on contact, all eletronic parts have been compromised, if the memory card is still intact save your pictures and remove it from the camera to transfer to new hardware. Replacing the camera unfortuneately is the only option.

The Olympus Tough TG-310 digital camera is a waterproof device that has great power to withstand any type of harsh weather conditions. This device has been engineered in such as way that you can simply put it in water, but remember that it can only sink up to 10-feet of water.

How do I write unprotect my olympus tg 310


It's not the camera, it's the memory card. SD/SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Olympus tg-310 says write protect even though sd card is not on write protect


SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.
You may have a software write protection enabled.

Can't upload video from camera to pc Olympus TOUGH TG-310 Digital Camera


Do you have Windows Live Photo Gallery? It comes with Windows 7, but if not you can download it here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/photo-gallery-get-started
  1. Open Windows Live Photo Gallery
  2. Connect your camera
  3. Click the Import icon in the top left corner.
  4. Select your Olympus and click import. It should import both photos and videos.

You can also try and select the videos you want using the file download module Windows displays when a new device is plugged in. If that doesn't work, try
  1. Start > Computer > Olympus Tough TG-310
  2. Then open the folders until you find the videos you want. Select them and copy them to your desktop (or any other preferred location).
I have had video issues with my Olympus TOUGH (could not delete them from the camera) which turned out to be a formatting problem with the memory card.

My olympus tg 310 is stuck with the lens open and won't come on at all even when a fresh battery is installed


If the camera is within warranty, return it to where you bought it. Common fault with a few different brands, to do with a lens open sensor within the lens assembly itself. Maybe allow the camera to dischage without the battery for a few hours and see does it power on with a new battery. Also chack the battery, if it has bubbled it a dud, and check the battery contacts within the battery compartment.

My Olympus Tough turns on but immediately starts beeping for 10 seconds then shuts off. It does this over and over.


Your rechargeable battery is no longer serviceable. You need to replace it with a new battery. This camera uses one Olympus lithium ion battery*. No
other type of batteries can be used.
* TG-310: LI-42B
TG-610: LI-50B
Caution:
There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with the incorrect battery type.
