Question about Olympus SP800UZ Digital Camera

1 Answer

When we plug the camera in and it looks like its charging and it is yet when we unplug it, it will not turn on at all.

My parents bought it about 4 years ago. When we plug it in it acts like it's being charger but when we unplug it it refuses to turn on and acts like it is dead when it's not. We do have a new camera but I would like to fix it so we have an extra camera around. My mom says it acts like it has been dropped but its not. Any ideas would be great. Thank you.

As soon as the camera acts different form what you expect, you can "reset" any software problem, by switching off, removing the battery and memory card and then reinserting both and switching on again.
When you remove the battery, check it the contacts are clean and shiny. Do the came for the memory card. Use a bright light and eventually a magnifying glass to look in the camera, to the contacts there.
You can clean contacts with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
If you have a multimeter, or know someone who has, you could try to measure the voltage of the battery, to make sure you still can trust it.
The LI-50B is a 3,7 Lithium Ion battery and should deliver 3,7 volt to the camera.
When you try to measure the voltage with a multimeter (Set it to DC), it should read at least 3,8 volt. If it is less, you can assume the battery won't work as soon as you put it in the camera.

SOURCE: I have an Olympus e510 that I bought new 2 years

Hi, as per your information your camera 2 years old but not used much. You buy a new battery 1st time when you charged you see the gree light. But camera not working. When you try to charge the battery again you seen the red light. Its mean your charger have a problem. So what you do now? Ok try these.
Remove the power connection of the charger. then fixed the battery there slowly & properly. After that plug on the charger again. If the same thing happens then unplug the charger & plug in in different point. Then see what showing. If again red light then wait 1 hours and waiting for green signal. If there is no green signal showing then visit a service center with your charger. Tell them your problem. They will fixed the charger for you. Don't worry your camera is ok.
Your new battery or your charger one of then damaged. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Nikon s6300 won't turn on


Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

I have a safety 1st video monitor, model no. 08280. Since yesterday, the hand held parent unit displays a white screen when trying to view the baby. I have unplugged, checked batteries, charged them up...


Good Evening

The light on the camera unit not being illuminated indicate this is where the problem lies.

Ensure that the camera unit is plugged in and press the power button on the camera unit. If the camera unit does not switch on this is what has failed and you require a replacement - please contact your retailer. If the camera unit switches on and the parent unit is unable to establish a connection follow the instructions in the user manual to add a camera.

You have to pull the battery and then put it back in. Don't plug it into the computer unless its on, otherwise it won't turn on when you unplug it.........not sure why it does that.

Charging problems


The AC adapter is only used as an alternate power source for the camera. It is not intended to charge the battery for the camera in any way. In order to charge the camera's lithium battery you will need the charger that is designed for that battery.

Warrenty, My DXG-608 Camera won't power on


I have found if you plug mine into computer it will come on but you can't turn it off when you disconnect it. It still won't take pictures or do anything else but make a noise when you push a button or move joy stick.

Remove battery from charger. Unplug charger for a minute, then plug back into outlet. Reinsert battery and see if red LED comes on and STAYS on solid. If so, charge for about 5 hours.
