Question about Cameras

1 Answer

My son left his olympus FE-170 outside. I let it sit in front of a small heater for a couple of hrs. Now when you put new batteries in it, it says battery low and turns off. I know there is probably no hope. Any suggestions?

Try cleaning the battery terminals inside the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

LOW BATTERY MESSAGE WITH NEW BATTERIES IN FE170


Honestly I would try another set of new batteries. If you have some or purchase some Energizers from a Wallmart or Target where these batteries are usually fresh I think these will work much better.

Fe-170 model.viewing screen is periodically going completely black. Other features working, but not possible to take photos?


If your battery is fairly new, you've got to clean the contacts for the battery inside the camera. Do this with a "dampened" Q-Tip with rubbing alcohol. Do the same to the battery and the charging station. These contacts are vulnerable to very small amounts of impurities that float in the air.Best of luck my friend, Dana

on rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital

My Olympus fe-170 6.0 megapixel Digital camera



See if you can unscrew the battery door and find out exactly what the problem is.
Use the proper tools - screwdriver etc., etc. Check for any blockages - debris etc., etc. If the door is not broken you may just have to put it back on and tighten the screws that hold it closed.

Camera won't turn on


My daughter FE-190 just had the same problem. Make sure the little red tab is locked over the battery. Hers now works properly. I think it is possible with this camera to put in a battery and it NOT have good contact.

Hope that helps Brian
