SOURCE: how to activate time and date stamp on the pictures taken with olympus x-840

Bad News! I have had the same issue and have spoken to 3 different camera shops and they say that you can't get them on the images but that if you download the images to your computer you can click on the properties and all of your info for that picture will be there. I was bummed. Some digital cameras are available with this feature of date and time stamp most are not.

SOURCE: Battery charger flashing red light

Clean contact points of both battery and charger with q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. This solved my problem with blinking lights and not charging of the batteries.

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..

SOURCE: My FE 340 Olympus Camera tries to turn on, but

This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Olympus vr 310 problems won't fully charge the battery and it is brand new 7 hours and shows only justver half charged camera works


How long have you had it charging ? New batteries can take a long time for the first charge - is this mentioned in the manual at all?

Keep saying battery empty evn whn i just charged them


Some rechargeable batteries (NiCd and older NiMh) have a (bad) memory.
If they have, the charger cannot fully charge the batteries to their original
potential capacity.

Best thing to do is to buy new rechargeable batteries and a processor
controlled charger to prevent premature malfunction of your batteries.

There are new type precharged batteries which have a very low discharge
over time. Like the Sanyo Eneloop and such!

Even after putting a new fully charged battery camera shows battery empty


The reason you are still getting this error despite the fact that you've placed a new fully charged battery means that the battery is not compatible with the camera. The fact that it states this is because the battery isn't capable of handling the Olympus camera. I would suggest for you to buy a recommended battery pack by Olympus, or a rechargeable battery pack to avoid these errors.

When it is fully charge and i unplug it showing 80% but with in 30 minute it shows battery low.


All batteries have a certain lifetime to them. After so many charges the battery will eventually stop holding a charge. When this time comes, there is nothing to do except check the warranty on the battery and get it replaced or buy a new battery.

Olympus C-765 - won't take photos anymore. Memory card is fine and camera has worked perfectly for the past two years. Does anybody have a solution? The camera seems to function as normal, but when I press...


Reset the menus to default or factory settings.
Then test the camera again.
Make sure that the battery is fully charged or new.
You might consider to buy a new battery (Ebay is a good place) for this camera. Then test.
Problems like this can show up when the battery is weak or not fully charged.
You may try to remove the battery for 24 hours and then after try it again.

False low battery warning


Same thing happened to me when I used alkaline batteries. Have you tried fully charged NiMH? If not you may have a "leak". Your next option is the service center.

Olympus x-840 digital camera. Hi, there is a problem with the battery life; fully charged batteries seem to be exhausted after only a dozen or so pictures. The battery indicator plunging from a full set...


The best solution is to buy NiMh batteries 2300 mA or greater 2500 mA to 2700 mA and so I have no more problems with this excellent Olympus x 840 camera. In Belgium i have payed a little more than 50 euro for the batteries and the charger.
