Hi,

Did you check if the charger is workuing properly.it might have neen spoilt andn therefore it is not able to charge the battery.
If it is fine then the problem is with the battery or the camcorder.You can try replacing it with a new battery to see if that helps you fix the problem.

If you can do the repairs yourself there are two ways to fix the problem.
And even after replacing the new battery if you face the same problem.Then there are only two ways to fix the problem either give it for a repair or Dismental the camera.

Try to locate the power board. have a keen look at the components near the battery connector or the power connector. there you will be able to locate 3 to 4 safety fuses. check the continuty. if found open replace it and the problem can be solved. AND

the other way is to locate the motor for tape deck loading mechanism. Remove the flex ribbion connector of the motor from the pcb, then try giving 3volt supply from an external device to the motor in both the direction. in one direction it will move the deck outward, but be carefull when the cassette is being ejected a little portion of the tape may get damaged.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

    Even you do not have the shop receipt many brands provide you with one year free guarantee, usually all you need to to is register your product with the manufacturer. Again, we need make and model to find out.

Digital camera batteries go bad?


Yes the can go bad.
I still have 9 year old Kodak lithium batteries in good condition, nut I know sometimes my rechargeable batteries last no longer then a year. It is a shame that some camera brands only give a 90 day warranty on the batteries.
To keep your rechargeable batteries in a good condition, give them a charge at least every 3 months. Or always a day before you need the camera. Never try to use speed chargers. I still have a charger capable of charging full within 15 minutes. The barrettes are hot, and when charged that way after 10 or 20 times they are dead.
Just use the charger that came with your camera.
But if you only can shoot a few shote with your battery, buy a new battery.

This could be caused by a short circuit in the camera. As the camera is only two months old, don't recommend that you try fixing this yourself. Instead contact Olympus directly to inquire of warranty repair. If you live in the US, here's the contact info.

There is most likely a problem with the battery. If the charge/recharge cycle very quickly, some of the battery cells are probably damaged. Look for a replacement battery and that should fix it.
