Hi,
I'm sorry to say I don't know much about Olympus digital cameras, I've never had one on the bench.
I would take your camera and charger to a shop that sells Olympus batteries try a different battery first, this way you can try it out before you buy and make sure the camera and charger are working ok...

The battery is a Li-Ion, when these get flattened too far they shut down and will refuse to charge, they can sometimes be recovered by using a power supply to lift them but you must be very careful (use a 300ma wall wart at just over the rated voltage of the battery for 10 mins then put it back in the charger) as they can catch fire if over charged, shorted or connected backwards also if its been so flat it refuses to charge its certainly past its best and should be replaced as its likely it will let you down again.

On the other hand it could be the charger, so best to try and check out both before buying anything.
If it happened very suddenly and the battery was still able to run the camera for quite a while I would think a charger problem is more likely, if the battery has been taking less time to charge recently and lasting shorter times its more likely the battery..
Having said that the protection circuits can shut down a seemingly good battery for other reasons.

If you find its the charger third party (non Olimpus) chargers are available quite cheaply on ebay as are batteries

Best of luck

I lost the battery charger of my olympus fe-320. Can i charge it using the usb port ?


No, you cannot charge the battery in the camera via the USB port. You need to use the LI-40C or LI-41C charger or equivalent.

One source for a replacement charger (along with a battery and a camera case) is

My Olympus charger for the LI 10B battery does not light and charge the battery. Can the charger be fixed or do I need to buy a new one? By the way, my camera is Olympus C5000. Thank you.


I would say that you need a new charger. Standard chargers that come with digital cameras will eventually deteriorate depending on how often you use it. However, it could also be a battery issue, as batteries eventually will die even if they are rechargeable. I would try the charger with a different battery and see if it works, and if not, then you will know that the problem is with the charger.

How do I charge my Olympus camera? I've gone over the instructions a dozen times, and I just can't get it to work. Please help....


You must use the F-2AC battery charger along with the provided USB cable to charge the battery in the camera. Make sure the cable is inserted fully into the charger and the camera, it can take some force.
To charge the battery outside the camera use the LI-41C battery charger.

My sister gave me camera but doesn't have charger, battery, books nothing. All I have is the camera. How can I get accessories I need to make camera work?


The battery and charger is available on Ebay - search for Li-10B or Li-12B battery and charger to suit - in fact some auctions are sets of charger and battery.

The manual can be downloaded for free at
http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_product.asp?id=934

A USB cable can also be bought on Ebay, although I wouold suggest a Card Reader as a better option, make sure you get one that takes XD memory cards - I guess you will need one of those too !

Should have no problems as all accessoriers needed are common enough.

How to start since the power button does not react? How to charge battery?


Try recharging the battery. If that doesn't work, try a new battery.

Use the supplied charger to charge the battery. If you've lost the charger, you can get an LI-41C charger from Olympus. You can also get LI-40B or LI-42B batteries from them.

Type of battery


The Olympus LI-12B (supplied) or LI-10B lithium ion battery can be used with this camera. Do not use any other type of battery. The battery is not fully charged when the camera is purchased. Charge the battery using the supplied cradle before using the camera.
