Question about Olympus Camedia C-450 Zoom Digital Camera
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.
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.
