When you say does not hold charge, do you mean during periods of continuous usage, or when left unused for long periods ?

Testimonial: "No, it has not been holding charge over time, when NOT used or when laying idle."

    This is understandable, all batteries lose their charge when not used. With all my kit, I charge the batteries before use, just to be on the safe side. HTH.

Model VG 130, it says write protect. I moved the sliding switch, I tried a new card, but it still says write protect?


Have you tried formatting your card in the camera? Tried resetting camera to default settings?

How can i fix my OLYMPUS 170 DIGICAM. It won't open and won't work also


See page 12. Using the computer it can take up to 10 hours to charge. I would remove the battery and charge in a separate charger. The Olympus cameras have been exceptionable for me. In the over 110K photos I have taken with mind I have gone through several batteries.

Caution it suggests not taking pictures with the AC adapter connected. However it says you can review.

Hope this has helped?

My olympus vg-130 won't turn on or charge


Try this, it worked for me:-
Obtain a desktop style charger for the LI 70B battery and charge it separately from the camera. I got a charger at very low cost on eBay. I THINK that the original camera plus original charger won't cope with deeply discharged batteries. I also suggest making sure that the Auto-Power-Down is also switched ON in future. Good Luck.

Even after putting a new fully charged battery camera shows battery empty


The reason you are still getting this error despite the fact that you've placed a new fully charged battery means that the battery is not compatible with the camera. The fact that it states this is because the battery isn't capable of handling the Olympus camera. I would suggest for you to buy a recommended battery pack by Olympus, or a rechargeable battery pack to avoid these errors.

Even after my olympus mini digital battery is fully charged it doesn't work for long


This is probably because the battery has been worn down after many charges or because it has been over-charged.
When charging devices with batteries you have to make sure that you don't over-charge them.
It happens though, batteries do degrade over time and the amount of charge it holds becomes lower.
The only solution I can think of is changing the battery or buying a new camera.
Hope this helps.

Camera doesnt remain on


Based on the age of the camera, it's most likely due to the battery just losing its ability to hold a charge. After several years, the battery will just cease to accept a good charge, no matter how long you leave it charging. I'd suggest a replacement battery from one of the "aftermarket" battery makers (only because they are about half the price of the original Olympus battery).

Ive had the same problem with my camera and found that it was the quality of the batterys. you have to use good quality high drain batterys for digital cameras.
