Olympus camera: battery empty

Hi, We just got our new Olypus FE210 in June and this morning when I inserted two new batteries in the camera the screen flashed "Batteries Empty". We tried these batteries in other electronic equipment and they work fine. Please don't tell me I have to buy Olympus batteries! We also find that it eats up battery power like its going out of style. Is this a common problem with this camera? We know its not the best or the most expensive brand of cameras but we don't need anything fancy.
Thanks Gerry in Moncton, NB, Canada

OK, here's the answer. You won't find it anywhere else, but here it is.

If you use rechargable batteries, you MUST use ones with a respectable capacity. 2000mah are probably not enough. You need 2400mah at least. Yes, it doesn't make much sense, in the the battery capacity is supposed to reflect how long they'll last. But the wimpy batteries just won't let this camera turn on.

I have some experience with different battery capacity in this camera, and it took some aggravation to figure this out. But I'm pretty sure this is the answer.

The higher capacity batteries are more expensive, and their hold time is probably not as good. But I get a reasonable amount of usage with them.

Try reading page 54 of the manual. If you don't have it still, go to their website.

New battery is considered Empty


Some cameras, even the expensive Nikon professional cameras have the same problem. Sometimes turning it on and off fixes it, sometimes removing and reinserting the battery works. Sometimes, going into the menu and finding "reset" works.

My olympus fe210 won't turn on even with new batteries


Hi there,

Make sure the battery connectors inside the camera are clean, not rusty or full of dust.
Try another new set of batteries.
Make sure you're pressing your "ON' switch hard enough, perhaps that's the problem.

If it still doesn't work,
I'm afraid it's a hardware problem, and you're going to have to send it in to get it serviced.

Hope I helped,
Tom

Drained batteries


Digital cameras do use a lot of power to operate. Somethings can make the batteries die faster. Even if the batteries may have worked in other cameras after ou used them in yours could just be that the other camera requires less power to operate then yours. Turning off and on the camera or simple viewing them can use more power then usual. Try and avoid this to see if it last longer. Also, try and see if there is an auto shut of to save power when you leave the camera on. If you have an eye piece use that to take pictures instead of the display this will also save on power consumption. Also, when you know that you won't be using the camera for awhile meaning you are storing it then remove the batteries. Some electrical items even if the camera is off they can still be draining the batteries.

If these don't help then I would have it looked at especially if you are under warranty.

Drained batteries


Stop using this camera (Olympus FE-210), warn all your friends and relatives about this piece of junk, send the camera back to Olympus COD. Take the money you save from not buying more batteries for this camera and buy a decent camera from a reputable manufacturer.
