Olympus Stylus 770SW Battery Problem

I have a Olympus Stylus 770 SW camera; the batter wont charge properly. In the manual it says that when charging the charger will have a red light & when its finished charging the light will turn off. When I charge my battery, theres a flashing light & when i put my battery back into the camera , my camera wont turn on. Is there something wrong with the battery or the battery charger? What can i try to do? Thanx

It may be the battery - try using one of your spare batteries, see if that makes a difference.

After only 15 days mine did the same thing. I called the dealer Olympus and they gave me a RAN number and told me where to send it. I got a call about a week later. They said because the camera had moisture inside I was not coverd. The best they would do is mail me a rebate card for 25 dollars off my next purchase. I was like WTF. The woman said sorry but that was all they could do. When I asked to speak to manager she hung up.

SOURCE: Dropped my Olympus Stylus 1050 SW... now it wont turn on!

Get a new camera something broke on the inside of this one the term shock proof does not cover dropping the camera and the term waterproof does not cover submersion in water these terms must be taken very lightly shockproof means a good shaking won't bother the camera and waterproof means a drop or two of rain wont bother the camera. GOOD LUCK

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.

Hi

Sorry to hear about your issue with the Olympus mju 770 SW. There's a couple of things you can check and try, before thinking about a repair or binning the camera and getting a new model.

1. Check the contacts on the battery are clean?

2. Clean the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment are clean?

3. Is the charger actually charging the battery? Try another battery or see if you can test the existing battery with a multi-meter to check there is some power in it.

It is fairly common for chargers to fail, so it's worth checking out but don't go spending money on a new charger unless you know it will fix your problem.

Hope this helps

I cannot turn my olympus 770sw on. I've tried everything i can think of. what can i do? some background, i left the camera connected to the computer and the battery died while it was connected, since then...


this is probably due to the fact that your battery died while it was connected because normally i think it is supposed to charge while it is connected but maybe the battery's life span is dead

I have lost the usb chord for my olympus 770sw. how can I get another one?


I wouldn't bother. The cheaper option is to buy a card reader and to just use that. saves battery too, and takes up less space when travelling.

You have to take it to a repair shop and have it fixed.

Stylus 770 SW Camera - causes Power Surge on USB port


Blown USB ports can happen. Most of the time, they still move power...like you can still charge devices through them, but the device won't be recognized. See if a hub will work.
