Battery dying on Olympus SW 850

Just bought the olympus SW850 on-line, happy with the camera but the battery keeps dying after 20-30 shots, only thing is that I have looked a few times at the pics on the screen, but not overly, also it is turned off when not in use. I always fully charge it before using, have not had this problem with any other cameras. ahudson

    I have had my canera foe only 2 days and the battery dies after VERY little use. Is this camera or battery faulty?

Just got mine and after minimal use the low battery is flashing?!?! Class action suit to force them to provide a better battery and give us a new one. Where do we start?

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

How do you reset the olympus camera 850?


Here's the manual for the 850sw. Got to page 23, and the instructions are there.

Set the Mode dial to the camera pic and press the menu button. Use the arrow keys to arrow left to the RESET icon and then press the OK/FUNC button.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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.

The lens refuse to close on my Olympus stylus 850 sw.  It seems jammed. The camera make a warning sound when i turn it off. Can't use it.


same thing happens to mine. olympus wants to charge me more than the camera cost to fix it. It started doing it one month after the warranty expired. The problem does go away for weeks at a time sometimes but always comes back so camera is not dependable. If you shake/hit the camera repeatedly it sometimes fixes itself. Olympus sucks.

Battery drainage


20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batteries.

The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion batteries. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and they still work great.
Good Luck

My camera microphone is bad quality??????


Mine does that too! Idk, i guess it's normal. And I kinda hate it. I'm looking into buying a flip for videos. I guess theres an underwater case, so you could use that for undeerwater videos.

Olympus 550 UZ battery


you may want to use lithium batteries... i find the rechargeables in most cameras to not last as long... also you may need to clean the contacts in the battery compartment with alcohol and let air dry
