Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera
My Olympus c-5050 developed some fault. The low battery warning comes up despite the batteries being fully charged. Initially I thought it is due to my rechargeable batteries reaching their lifetime but the problem persists on new batteries as well. When fully charged the camera shows full batteries for duration of approximately 2-5, maybe 10 shots and after that the power warning comes up. The camera is still able to take a large number of photos on the same batteries but the red low battery warning constantly flashes, the operation is slower and sometimes the camera switches itself off and powers on again. A bit annoying. Is it a common fault, anyone encounter it ..??
Can it be repaired, any remedies ..??
Would appreciate any help on this matter, many thanks
Same thing happened to me when I used alkaline batteries. Have you tried fully charged NiMH? If not you may have a "leak". Your next option is the service center.
