The camera uses very common "AA" batteries, but infortunately AA batteries come in various "stengths", and the FE130 requires a very high strength AA battery- you may have a battery, that will fit in the camera, but just doesn't have the power for your camera, Also, the batteries may be "new" to you (you bought them recently), but they may have been on the store shelf too long (most "throw away batteries have Expiration dates on the package and sometimes on the bateries themselves- if they are still "in date"- have someone check them with a battery tester or voltmeter- if you don't have either of those- see if you have some other device ( a small flashlight) they might fit in to check- occassionally batteries go bad. There is also the possibility is that you purchased AA batteries that are rechargable, like NiCad, that don't have to be thrown away), but they need charging before they can be used, and regularly to keep their charge. If you tell us what the battery label says and any date info it might have we can probably know more.

Where can i get a memory card for my olympus fe130?


Try Staples. Just make sure that you do not get a card too big for camera - otherwise it will not work with the memory.

Hi Ive got an Olympus SP-550UZ digital Camera


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. "Zoom error" is repairable
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Low Battery, Connected car charger, now is dead


May be the battery won't have charge, keep 1 or 2 hrs continues charges, and if it is not working then you have to replace the battery set full.

My voice recorder won't turn on!!!


We had a similar problem (it wouldn't turn on), and it turned out that we hadn't taken off both layers of clear packaging from the batteries. It now works.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery...


You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend.
Have you checked the contacts in the bottom of the battery chamber for cleanliness?

Olympus c-160 battery problem


Check your user manual to see exactly what type of batteries you can use. Not all AA batteries will work in all digital cameras. Some require a specific brand of batteries or specific number, even though, they may be physically the same size. Hope this helps :)
