Question about Olympus Cameras

1 Answer

I used the camera on Sunday, August 22nd. When I tried to power it up on Monday, August 23rd, nothing happened. I thought the battery was low, charged it overnight, and still nothing. I actually have 2 additional batteries, and none of them power the camera. I can't believe all 3 batteries would die at the same time.

    Thanks, I'll try it...

    Okay, I checked the terminals, they looked clean, rubbed them anyway, AND inserted a fresh battery...still nothing. Thanks for the suggestion -- hopefully a camera service center will be able to fix it.

If any digital camera is subjected to extreme humidity or just plain dampness it's a fairly good bet the battery terminals within the battery could become corroded. Check them before blaming either the camera or batteries. Quite often a vigorous rub of the battery terminals themselves with a sheet of printer paper or a pencil eraser (especially aa type)is enough to cure the problem.
But after doing that and still wont power ON if you can try a fresh battery before taking the camera to a service center will be good.

    No problem , they should be able to fix it by replacing some of the parts for the battery contacts.

Green light goes on when I turn camera on, but 3 red lights flash when I shoot & nothing happens. I tried changing multiple batteries, all alkaline. No luck yet. Any ideas?


The 3 flashing red lights indicate low battery power! This could be because of low battery power (all 4 batteries must be good), the battery contacts in the camera are poor, the make of battery being used (try different make of battery)

I try to turn on my Camedia C-730 Ultra Zoom camera and I just get several beeps and nothing happens. I tried new batteries and I also tried a direct connect power supply.


Based on what you report the camera would need to be serviced. Regretfully all parts, accessories and repair service have been discontinued due to the age of the camera.
You may refer to the yellow pages for local camera repair centers who may be able to offer parts and service on the camera.
As a loyal Olympus customer, the Customer Service Department is also available to discuss other options available to you.
They can be reached Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 7:00PM East Coast time, at: 1(800)622-6372 option 2 and then option 3
