Digi power tc-u100 wont charge


Are the batteries any good? That would be my next guess if I bought the new supply unit and I cannot get a charge going on the batteries. make sure that voltages match as well as the proper charger for the laptop is used they are usually exact and will not work at any different voltage as required in the manual people do by third party charging units and they never work on some laptops. It is a factory replace only item. For whatever reason I do not know they are cheaper but often do not work with the original batteries. So if you match correctly you should be getting a charge going for the batteries. So if you know that the batteries are good before buying the unit itself. You may want to return that unit and get the one your laptop calls for. If they are the proper ones both charger and batteries. Then your software program for battery charging may be faulty. You may need to re-install the original drivers again for the battery portion......Just a suggestion! John

MY OLYMPUS SP 500UZ constantly kills batteries...any ideas? I can't go even an hour without replacing batteries most days.


The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion battery. 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

Can you trickle charge the Olympus FE-20 via the usb cable?


Very few cameras will charge through USB ports. This is only to connect to computer to access pictures. Your camera will not charge via USB. I suggest to many people that using cameras that take AA batteries is the best cameras to buy when traveling. Many camera owner fall victim to different voltage outlets when travelling.

Olympus battery charger flashes red when battery is inserted.


@gminvite1
"Another way I found was when this happens, to push the battery to the point the light will turn on, when it starts flashing slide it off then back on. Do this a few times so it charges a little, then you should be fine to leave it on."

I tried to do this with my LI-10C Olympus charger and it worked..The blinking red light turns to solid red..Thanks for the info...Now I won't be bothering to buy a new batt.or have my charger checked..

Battery charger won't charge


Hi,
I'm sorry to say I don't know much about Olympus digital cameras, I've never had one on the bench.
I would take your camera and charger to a shop that sells Olympus batteries try a different battery first, this way you can try it out before you buy and make sure the camera and charger are working ok...

The battery is a Li-Ion, when these get flattened too far they shut down and will refuse to charge, they can sometimes be recovered by using a power supply to lift them but you must be very careful (use a 300ma wall wart at just over the rated voltage of the battery for 10 mins then put it back in the charger) as they can catch fire if over charged, shorted or connected backwards also if its been so flat it refuses to charge its certainly past its best and should be replaced as its likely it will let you down again.

On the other hand it could be the charger, so best to try and check out both before buying anything.
If it happened very suddenly and the battery was still able to run the camera for quite a while I would think a charger problem is more likely, if the battery has been taking less time to charge recently and lasting shorter times its more likely the battery..
Having said that the protection circuits can shut down a seemingly good battery for other reasons.

If you find its the charger third party (non Olimpus) chargers are available quite cheaply on ebay as are batteries

Best of luck

Charging Axim while travelling


Do you mean another besides the A/C adapter? This is separate from the cradle (option), so you can take it with you together with the travel synch cable (option). Although Dell guides says to use no other chargers then the A/C adapter provided, this can be impractical in some situations. The spec on the charger is as follows. I suppose providing you meet this, you should be OK with a Auto or Lighter type adapter. Do so at your own risk.
