Clean off the contacts where the battery makes contact with camera contacts. Use a pencil eraser of a match book striker (for the sandpaper). Make sure the battery is seated tightly against the contacts. If it's not tight, use a piece of the cover from the match book for a small 'shim' to hold the battery tight.

Camera or battery problem?


Sounds like a battery problem. When a rechargeable battery is allowed to completely discharge from non-use, it usually will not come back.

Olympus E-300 Evolt - LCD Screen doesn't come & SSWF light stays on


My camera is working again, but the problem is not completely solved. What I did was to put on the old lens, take out the battery then turn on the camera and finally put on the battery again. And now it works. But the problem with the new lens (Zuiko digital 40-150) continues.
