Question about Olympus FE-360 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Olympus FE-360 camera is dead. I only have the USB chord I use to upload pictures. Is that supposed to charge it? If it isn't charging it does that mean I need a new battery? I haven't used this camera in over a year so I forget.....

No, the USB cord will not charge the battery. If anything it will drain it faster since the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

You need to use the supplied LI-41C battery charger.

Can't upload pictures from my camera to pc


Sounds like the PC doesn't have the correct driver to find the Olympus.
Do you still have the CD that came with the camera ? this will have to be installed.
Once installed , connect you camera via the mini USB (or firewire) , turn on and then open the Photo application.
If you don't have the CD/ROM then do a Google search for Olympus FE360 and down load the driver from their website.
Good luck -- Ray

I have a olympus fe 20 how do i charge it? can i use the usb?


No, you cannot use the USB to charge it. Your camera uses a LI-42b battery, which looks like this:

You need to open the battery compartment, take the battery out, and put the battery in the charging unit. I'm not posting a picture of a charging unit because they vary, but generally it's just a small box that has a slot to take the battery, and plugs in to a wall outlet. There's usually a LED indicator on it, to tell you when it's charging/charged.

I'm afraid that if you don't have a charging unit, you'll need to get one, you can't charge the battery any other way.

Can i charge an Olympus fe-4000 with a usb cable connected to my computer?


No. The camera does not incorporate any charging circuitry. You have to use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery. The USB cable is strictly for transferring pictures and videos to the computer.

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.

Charging


Usually the usb cable only provides the data signals to it. If you are using a 4 pin usb cable then the power isn't going to the cable and it won't charge it.

CANT GET A CHARGE


These cameras can't be charged via the USB because there is no charger built into the camera. You will need to buy a new charger.

My Olympus FE-170 won't upload pictures.



Format your camera's internal memory and also format any memory cards you insert.
Use a program called Recover4All to see exactly what is in your camera's internal memory.
Then insert a memory formatted memory card and take some pictures. see if they will upload.
