Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

I ve not used camara for 6 months put new batteries in but it will not turn on .allen


Make sure that the battery terminals are clean and there is no crust in the contacts. Make sure the battery is of the same type/same rating for the camera to switch on.
If the camera does not turn on still, try to put the camera in a warm place for some time to ward off any moisture within. Repeat to ON.
If not you will need help to get the camera opened and checked within. The fault can be a simple link to the failure of the controller.

rechargeable batteries are definitely a better bet. I have used many Wii battery packs and chargers, none seem to last very long.

Here are the steps:

1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera.

2. Clean the battery contacts.

a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera

3. Without the memory card,turn on your camera.

My olympus isn't turning on


Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries.

I hope this works for you.

CAMARA turns off when i press to take a photo


I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.
