The camera was plugged to computer and downloaded photos. I left the camera plugged in and batteries went dead. Now camera won't turn on.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing and it is not a good idea to download from camera to pc using batteries because if the batteries go dead you can lose all your images. If you download again put new batteries in first or better still put the memory card straight into a pc or a printer and view and print from the card, or if possible fine out if you can buy a mains lead for your type of camera.Try reformating your card either through a card reader or from the camera with FRESH batteries and it should work again.The file/directory structure was probably corrupted when the camera was trying to work with dying batteries. Let me know if this helps

The battery is dead but I need to upload photos and I don't have the charger. When I plug it into the computer it turns on but it won't let me get my photos and says battery is exhausted.

The S210 doesn't charge via via the USB. In fact, connecting via the USB actually drains the battery faster. If you want to upload your pictures, you either have to charge the battery or take the memory card out of the camera and put it into a card reader connected to the computer.

My camera says "Change the Batteries" no matter what I put in. Newly charged rechargeable or new reg ones. Please help me before Christmas.

I have the same problem with my A550. Remove the batteries when not in use. Put them back only when you want to take photos to stop it from draining your batteries.

Kodak Z1085 IS - drains battery even when camera is not on

the camera takes 1.5v to operate it
anything less the camera will shut down
recharge batteries are only 1.4v so at full
recharge it won't last long
The best batteries are litheum that have the right
volts and capacity to keep the camera going.
try turning or the camera stablizer setting...
might save your battery power.

Even with new batteries and they go dead before I take 3 pictures

Yes, there is definitely a fault with your camera.  You should be able to return it for a replacement.  I wouldn't experiment too much with batteries in this camera. batteries discharging this quickly are likely to overheat, causing unmentionable catastrophe.

Olympus C-4000 & C-4040 Battery Problems

I have the same problem with my C-4000, and I know someone else with a similar model with the very same problem. Fully charged batteries will briefly read read as full, then moments later drop to near dead (usually after taking the first photo), and then shortly thereafter the camera goes dead.

This is a great camera and has suited me just fine as a point and shoot backup to my SLR. After hearing about so many people with similar problems, I almost feel like Olympus built in a fault in order to encourage people to buy their latest and greatest cameras.

Flash use "kills battery dead"

The most likely culprit is a several year old battery that is not accepting or holding a sufficient charge. Turning the camera on, and taking a non-flash photo may not tax the battery too much. However, when the flash is called for, the power demand may exceed the battery's ability to deliver enough juice. A new(er) battery is probably your best bet to resolve the problem.

Camera batteries drain quickly

Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.
