Olympus C-450 power failure

I have an olympus C-450 which has been well cared for.The power has suddenly failed. It was in use when it failed, but now registers nothing. No power from batteries (tried new ones) or from USB - it seems to have literally died. I've tried taking the batteries out & leaving it for a while. All I can tyhink of is that there's a bad connection somewhere.

    Tried all that, plus new batteries plus plugging it into the USB. lol. The camera is virtually unused & has been well looked after. I've tried cleaning around the zoom lense in case it's got dirt into the mechanism, but I'm guessing it's a power fault/loose contact somewhere inside. :-(

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I have got a new pc with windows 7 installed. where do i find the latest driver for my olympus camedia c-450 Zoom camera?


The camera does not need a driver as the driver is part of the Operating System for both Windows and MAC, the computer should recognise it as a USB storage device unless you are runnin a very old operating system windows 98 in which case there is a storage driver here http://downloads.olympus-europa.com/consumer/Camera/224/usbstw98.exe
if you go to the olympus website here http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/208_software.cfm?category=5&productgroup=266&product=376&os=7&result= you can download this http://downloads.olympus-europa.com/consumer/Camera/297/USBAutoConnect.pdf which should help you

Card cover open


The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor that is on the card cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.aspOlympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $124 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Battery


The battery life on alkaline batteries vary according to manufacturer and power rating. Alkaline Batteries can provide up to 100 shots with typical usage. The Olympus CR-V3 long-life lithium batteries (LB-01) will provide approximately 500 shots. The Olympus Ni-MH batteries (B-01 4PE) would provide approximately 250 shots per charge and they can be recharged 300 to 500 times.
