Question about Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom - always reads low battery and then "dies"

I have had the connections cleaned on this camera and tried new and freshly recharged batteries that always have been suitable for it.
All of a sudden, last time I went to use it I got the low battery symbol and then the led goes blank if I try to turn on the viewfinder or anything else, the lenses doesn't even extend.
thanks,
Rich in the Philippines

Safe way - Try using brand new and fully charged NiMh.

Not for novice - Battery contact points may need cleaning. Use contact cleaner with a cotton swab.

Do not try - Spraying contact cleaner or WD-40 in battery compartment.

Last option - Service center.

Which cable use to download olympus c-2020 z


You don't need a cable.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

I CAN NOT TRANSFER PICTURES FROM MY OLYMPUS CAMEDIA ULTRA ZOOM C2100 TO MY NEW PC, BECAUSE I LOST MY SOFTWARE CD.


You can always use a separate card reader instead of the camera for downloading pics. Then, you don't need any special software. typrice_19.jpg

I recharged the batteries (Ni-MH) for my Olympus Camedia 2020, but still the camera will not turn on. Do I need new batteries? Where can I buy them?


Firstly check your charger. I was having problems with my batteries packing up after about 1 hours use. Now I only charge 2 at a time (its a 4 battery charger) and the problem is no more.
There is a limited life on batteries, check how old they are and if you've had them more than 3 or 4 years, I suggest you buy replacements. John

Olympus C-450 power failure


Your problem may be due to 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, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

My Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom sometimes battery registered as full and I go to take photo then message battery empty. Can anything be done?


Try using "fully charged" NiMH batteries. If you still experiencing "low battery", you may have a "leak". Your next option is the service center.

I try to turn on my Camedia C-730 Ultra Zoom camera and I just get several beeps and nothing happens. I tried new batteries and I also tried a direct connect power supply.


Based on what you report the camera would need to be serviced. Regretfully all parts, accessories and repair service have been discontinued due to the age of the camera.
You may refer to the yellow pages for local camera repair centers who may be able to offer parts and service on the camera.
As a loyal Olympus customer, the Customer Service Department is also available to discuss other options available to you.
They can be reached Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 7:00PM East Coast time, at: 1(800)622-6372 option 2 and then option 3
