Carefully remove the battery or take it to repair center... tweezers may work but you have to be careful to not damage the battery

Camera is stuck with lens out and won't turn on or


If this camera takes ordinary batteries you may have inserted them the wrong way around.
If it takes a rechargeable pack recharge it for average time recommended and try again.

Battery life for my camera is miserable - I've had the camera for 2 years and I'm already on my second battery. Is this a function of the make and model or do I have a faulty camera? Thank you


That is not good, by the way is there a possibility that the battery is over charge? because overcharging it will cause some damage on the battery and it will only good for a few months...

Hope that helps........

Shutter stuck


I wonder how good your rechargeable batteries are-even these lose their ability to recharge fully after a while. Try some non rechargeable good quality batteries in it and see if it then works properly.

My olympus isn't turning on


Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries.

I hope this works for you.

Batteries are Depleted


A camera rep told me that use about 2500mi (?) batteries instead of the 900 I was using otherwise the batteries will be depleted with just one picture. Digital cameras or any other digital piece of equipment needs the extra power. Make sure that your charger will charge the 2500 power ones fully.

Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old


I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

Freezes when taking/trying to take photos- help


When trouble shooting a digital camera, you only have two options: Battery and Memory Card. If you are using rechargeable batteries, it is possible that one battery is bad. It is also possible that the charger is bad. So, buy 4 Alkaline AA batteries and try them. This will either confirm that your present batteries and/or charger is defective. Or it will confirm that you don't have a battery problem The only way to know, it to try it. ....... The same applies for the memory card. Try another memory card and see if that helps. .....

I just bought new rechargeable batteries, and got only a few shots. Why so little usage from new batteries? Is something wrong?


Nothing is wrong with the camera or the batteries. Rechargeable batteries of all kinds will self-discharge over time. Charge them fully (if they are NiMH completely charge and discharge them a few times), and you should see full battery capacity.
