My olympus vg-130 won't turn on or charge


Try this, it worked for me:-
Obtain a desktop style charger for the LI 70B battery and charge it separately from the camera. I got a charger at very low cost on eBay. I THINK that the original camera plus original charger won't cope with deeply discharged batteries. I also suggest making sure that the Auto-Power-Down is also switched ON in future. Good Luck.

Camera was low on battery. Took a couple of pictures with no problem then got it home to charge the battery and the camera is dead. Won't turn on or charge. Tried plugging it in directly with the...


1. Check if the battery is positioned and seated well in the camera.

2. If OK, and problems persists, exchange the battery and recheck.

3. If that does not help, your camera needs probably to be repaired.

Dropped camera. Will not turn on. Sticking lens cover prior to drop. Olympus stylus 500


Most probably you already have a defective camera. The camera's internal components are sensitive to shocks especially the lens. If it's not turning, try to remove the battery first for 10 minutes. If it didn't turn on after you put it back in, more likely you need to send the unit to any camera repair center.

Camera turns on then immediately turns off


Quick turnoff is normally a symptom of low battery power. Make sure that you have fresh/charged batteries in the camera. If fresh power doesn't solve the problem you will need professional service on the camera.

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?

No power?????


Not sure if this will help, but it seemed to fix my issue......I used a freshly charged battery. Removed both xD and Compact Flash memory from the camera. Powered on. You will see the menu flash and read that there is no card inserted. Power down. Place memory back in the camera. I can't explain my issue. The camera may have gone into a stand-by mode until the battery died and it just needed a reset? Anyway, hope this can be of use to someone. =0)

Olympus FE-115 : wont turn on..turns iself off!!!


I had the same problem and i called up cutomer support on 1300 659 678 (Australia) and they said that the problem may lie in your batteries. It was advised that you use Lithium batteries, and to avoid use of Alkaline, since they dont have the required power to operate the camera which is why it turns off right away. As to what type of rechageable batterires to use i am not sure, i think it was Nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries. Hope this solves your problem.

Batteries


The Lithium batteries that are provided with the camera will supply approximately 200 images. The Ni-MH batteries will provide approximate 100 shots per charge. The B-10LPB Lithium Polymer battery will allow 500 - 700 shots per charge and can be recharged approximately 500 times. B-12LPB Lithium Polymer Battery will deliver twice the power allowing 1000- 1400 shots per charge and can be recharged approximately 500 times. The Alkaline batteries, although can be used, is not recommended due to very low battery life.
