    Thought my battery charger had a problem so I bought a new Energizer charger with 2200 mAh batteries. I can take about 8 pictures and my battery light is flashing! I spent $25 on something that wasn't the problem to start with. UGH this is ANNOYING!!!!!

    hi guys,

    i thought my FE310 is having problem but seems like it is a known problem to all user. bought it when it was first launched with high price. not even 2mth, price dropped steeply after the FE320 is out. bad choice.

    i hope olympus will come out with a new firmware to solve this battery problem...

Hi, I have had the same problem with the battery not working.  I have changed batteries several times, with no change.  I bought the camera when I was pregnant so I could have a camera in my bag to take spontaneous photos of my baby but was disappointed at the birth and ever since because the battery is not dependable! I took it into the shop and was informed there could be a $90 charge if there is no mechanical problems... :-((

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.

Even with new batteries and they go dead before I take 3 pictures

Yes, there is definitely a fault with your camera.  You should be able to return it for a replacement.  I wouldn't experiment too much with batteries in this camera. batteries discharging this quickly are likely to overheat, causing unmentionable catastrophe.

Camera wants you to format when you turn it on.

on some cards, you will need to clean the contacts of the card to get it to see the card. you can clean with a pencil eraser lightly over the contacts and wipe clean or alcohol cleaner (let air dry for one hour before inserting card back into camera)
