Three places to look for are:
1)Battery terminals and the wire from the battery terminal. Check for battery corrosion. 2) CdS meter cells is bad 3) Galvanometer is bad.
The camera can be repaired but you will need a donor parts camera.

I Have olympus fe230 7.1 mp digicam it does not have a power even i bought a new battery pack.


You say you bought a new battery pack but have you actually checked it with a meter to make sure it has sufficient power?
I picked up an fe-230 used that had no batteries and bought a set of 2 batteries and a charger off ebay. According to the light on the charger the batteries are charged and ready. Only they aren't according to my meter. The el cheapo fleabay charger is no good.
So assume nothing and check your battery with a meter and go from there.

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

Had the camera for 13 months. I suspect the light meter is busted. Photos indoors are OK, outdoors or in strong light are over exposed with horizontal lines through the photo. Quoted $160 to repair with...


Just put some part of a finger or two over the lens to cut down the light outdoors. Your shutter diaphrame is not working, but keep on using the camera, it might free up.

Camera stopped operating


Well I know what the review says about underwater to five meters http://www.ephotozine.com/article/Olympus-Mju-725SW

but I would take it with a pinch of salt frankly.
You could get onto Olympus and tell them you know- 'You said I could take it under water - now it wont work' - They may replace it

Lighting problem with Olympus E 500


It sounds like it may be a broken shutter.

Metering modes


There are three metering modes: Digital ESP, Center Weighted Averaging and Spot. DIGITAL ESP - The camera meters and calculates the light levels or light level differences in the center and other areas of the image separately. CENTER WEIGHTED AVERAGING - The metering mode provides the average metering between the subject and the background lighting, placing more weight on the subject at the center. SPOT - The camera meters a very small area around the center of the subject, defined by the spot metering area mark in the viewfinder.
