Question about Olympus Camedia C-4000 Zoom Digital Camera
Hi - did you ever figure out what your battery problem was with the C-4040? I have the C-4000 and new or barely used batteries show up as low? It's really frustrating! I gave up using the rechargeables also as they did the same thing. Should I get some new Li-ion batteries?
Same problem also... sent to repair center... the tech tell to me that the complete electronic need to be changed... it cost near the same price than a new one to change it... so no repair!
Mine also work long time if you don't take picture... but if you press button to do focus, low batt sign appear... same thing if you put the camera in film mode. I think the problem come with the focus motor or function who drain energy from batt.

I have the C-4000. Don't have any battery problems but will say that the lithium batteries last way longer than either regular alkaline or rechargeables.

I have the same problem with my C-4000, and I know someone else with a similar model with the very same problem. Fully charged batteries will briefly read read as full, then moments later drop to near dead (usually after taking the first photo), and then shortly thereafter the camera goes dead.
This is a great camera and has suited me just fine as a point and shoot backup to my SLR. After hearing about so many people with similar problems, I almost feel like Olympus built in a fault in order to encourage people to buy their latest and greatest cameras.

I think the only solution here is a class action lawsuite against cannon. There are way too many people complaining about the same failure here. I don't think the battery is really becoming drained because if i pop the batter back out and turn it back on, the battery shows up full again. I think it is a problem with the electronics that read the battery level. Someone should make a list of names and start a lawsuit.
