Question about Olympus FE-35 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I use rechargeable batteries in my FE-35 and they are constantly showing up as empty. They show as full for about 30 secs and then they are shown as completely empty. It's very frustrating. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a solution?

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.

I have a problem in my dell laptop battery. I have charge alomost 1 hours and is show full battery and time backup is 1 hour and 30 min. then after 20 min. it shown 35 min. backup


The battery may be near the end of its usable life. As batteries age, they cannot store a charge as long as they used to. Also, if the battery is constantly being charged, this could cause the battery to lose its ability to keep a charge. The best option is to replace the battery.
Please rate my solution to let me know how I'm doing. Thank you!

Pictures are misty if we take them in the sunlight & the battery power becomes lower quickly even if it is charged full.


You should know that if take pictures against the sunlight it will be misty. About the batteries, if those are NiCad batteries, it has a problem called memory effect. If you recharge the batteries before it's completely empty, the next time the battery shows it needs recharge when it reaches that level. So recharge the batteries only when they are fully empty. You will have to replace the battery now.

Take a look in your camera's menus. There should be a place where you can select rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries. That setting enables or disables the battery charging circuit. If you are using rechargeable batteries, the camera must be set accordingly so that the battery charger will turn on. If you are using
Alkaline batteries such as Duracell or other types of non-rechargeable batteries the charger must be disabled. If you do not set that parameter correctly, you will get the symptoms you describe.

Shows empty battery even with new batteries


If they're AA, don't use "HEAVY DUTY". They don't have enough power. Use alkaline or rechargeable, and recharge at least 15 hours even if your charger show they're fully charged after a couple hours. Please leave feedback if this helps.
