Question about Olympus FE-35 Digital Camera
This may not be so much an issue with the camera as much as a problem with the batteries. Since these are type "AA" battery packages, you should attempt to use them in another device - such as a small flashlight or other device that can operate on AA batteries.
If the batteries fail to to power the flashlight (or other test device) for more than 5 - 10 minutes after charging overnight (or as long as directed by the battery charger), the problem is with the batteries. It is very important that the batteries are charged properly. Properly means for for the required amount of time AND in the correct charger. There are different types of battery types: NiMh, NiCad, NiZN, Li-ion, etc. Using the wrong charger to charge the batteries could cause unpredictable results - or create a potentially dangerous condition. Additionally, some battery types develop a "memory" and can be responsible incomplete charging and rapid discharge. This happens if the initial charge is insufficient and the batteries are not completely discharged prior to recharging. It may be possible to recondition these batteries - but this size battery is relatively inexpensive, so replacement might be a better option.
If the batteries are working okay in the test device, then the problem may lie in the camera itself. Test the camera by installing fresh, AA alkaline batteries. If the camera rapidly discharges the alkaline batteries, it's a safe bet that the camera has a problem.
