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.

SOURCE: Olympus 7010 shuts down in picture mode - not a battery problem

I will tell you how I did it for the same price you were going to charge me for a solution. To ask how I did it once I found a solution without a fee goes against your business model.

SOURCE: Olympus battery charger flashes red when battery is inserted.

@gminvite1
"Another way I found was when this happens, to push the battery to the point the light will turn on, when it starts flashing slide it off then back on. Do this a few times so it charges a little, then you should be fine to leave it on."

I tried to do this with my LI-10C Olympus charger and it worked..The blinking red light turns to solid red..Thanks for the info...Now I won't be bothering to buy a new batt.or have my charger checked..

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.

Pls help i have a problem with my olympus camera stylus 850sw, when I would turn it on it says write protect.what will I do...pls help


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position nearest the contacts enables writing, the position farthest from the contacts protects the card from writing. If the slide is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try a different card.

Camera will not turn on. It was like this for a a


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or 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, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

When I turn the camera on it beeps then nothing happens. I can review the pic's taken, but no other functions work not even the protective lens. Tech support said it was the battery, but I'm not sure...


The problem you describe is frequently due to weak/wrong batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Make sure that you have the correct battery type in the camera, and that they are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, remove the batteries and wipe the inside 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 the ends of the batteries and replace them in the camera. This clears up the problem about 90% of the time -- I hope it works for you.

When i turn on camera, it says battery empty


ok this happpened to my old kodak once. actually, several times.what i ended up having to do was give it to a mechanically inclined friend to fix. as it turned out, some cable had been fried after one of the times i dropped the camera. so you can either:
  1. get rechargable batteries to save money
  2. buy a new camera
  3. contact a mechanically inclined friend/relative/co-worker

hope this helped!
