It sounds like your battery is dead. How long have you had this camera? If the battery is not charged properly it will cause the life time to be cut in half or more. When charging these batteries you have to let them die completely before charging. This could be a major problem if your in the middle of taking pictures. I have two batteries for all my cameras that way I always have one on stand by. Hope this works. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Battery charger flashing red


Although the manuals nothing says about flashing red light on charger, my best guess is the battery is defect.
Try to remove the battery several times and start the charging again and again. But when after a few attempts the LED starts flashing again, you better buy a new battery. When you don't use the camera for a longer period, make it a habit, to charge the battery every 3 months or so.

My new olympus stylus 850sw is not working. The flash settings do not seem to work, and all the pictures turn out either really dark, or a bright white screen. I've altered all the settings, and nothing is...


You could have a problem with the board of the camera. I hope you did not drop the camera. If what you say is happening try to restart the computer of the camera by removing the main battery. It also has a reserve battery and I suggest you remove that too. In about an hour put the batteries back and see if the camera has reset itself. If it does not work I hope you applied for the extended warranty and just send it back to the camera shop if they handle it or directly to Olympus. Good Luck

I have an Olympus 850sw and each time I turn it on it asks to enter the date and time. Why is that?


Most of the cameras with a date time clock have a secondary internal power source like a small watch type battery some point and shoot cameras use a storage cell which takes power from the main battery. This means when the main battery looses power the camera clock will hold a setting for about 1 day or 24 hours. To keep the camera clock set you need to keep a charge in the main battery. Here is a screen shot from the manual explaining this function.

My Olympus Stylus 850SW won't turn on. Thought it was a drained battery, got new battery, then thought it was my charger. Bought new charger. Battery is fully charged, camera still will not turn on.


Link

Good day,

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.

If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.

Regards.

The battery is completely charged, but the camera will not turn on. Do you think it is the battery or an internal problem?


Its probably a camera problem.

But you could try a little trick, polish the battery contacts with a clean dry cloth. Try the same with the contacts inside the camera, possibly a cotton bud job this. I can't say it will work but worth a try.

Flooded my Olympus 850SW while snorkeling in Fiji. I let


Fiji's great isn't it?! Friendliest people and GREAT diving and marine life. A photographers dream, as long as the camera works.

Anyhow, to answer your question, YES, your camera is dead.
May it rest in peace at the nearest electronics recycling station.
If you even get a few drops of salt water in an electronic camera it's either going to be toast immediately, or it won't take long for the inevitable corrosion to do it's magic and kill it. You could send it in for repair, but that would likely cost more than a new(er) camera.
