Question about Olympus Cameras

Open Question

My Olympus TG-3 Tough digital camera will turn on but it won't do anything and turns itself off a few seconds later.

The menu, info, and all functions do not work. It is not the battery as I have tried several new batteries that work in the same camera owned by others.

SOURCE: A95 PowerShot turns on and off until batteries die.

Sounds like you have a stuck power button or shorted power switch. To repair you'll need to remove the top cover. Please see the following disassembly guide. It's in Estonian, but you can follow the pictures.

Continue to page 2, paying particular attention to the second and third picture. It looks like the power switch is connected to the camera through a simple ribbon cable. I'd suggest removing the ribbon cable end from its connector, cleaning any obvious crud, and then reseating the ribbon cable end into its connector. Ribbon cables are notorius for suddenly shorting or getting a bad connection at the connector. Usually just jiggling the cable can fix it too :-) Good luck!

SOURCE: Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old

I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

It sounds like your rechargable batteries might be bad.
Try a new set of batteries. It might be a cheap fix.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

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.

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.
If you would like the manual, please send me an email to LBrown18062@hotmail.com and I will send it to you right away. Please put "Olymp TG-310" as the subject. Lawrence Brown
