Question about Olympus Cameras

1 Answer

Sorry to bother and hope this is free of charge. My name is John Gong and I bought this camera from staples to record videos for my youtube channel. Apparently I chose this camera but they had none in stock but the sample. I bought the sample since it seemed to be in good condition. I was wrong, when I bought the camera and started "trying" to charge it it did not work. I realized the camera's slot for the charger to go in seems to be bit slant and a little wide. I'm pretty sure this was because the customers were using it and the charger with it made it kinda "wobbly". I hope this is enough information and free of charge.

Hi John. This is a free service unless you decide to get premium advice from a professional and you will be told the cost beforehand so do not worry. I am a volunteer. My guess is that you have connected the camera's USB cable to the computer? Some new model cameras charge that way, but in most cases the battery has to be taken out of the camera and charged in a special unit that plugs into an AC wall socket. The camera-USB cable being slightly wobbly may not be a problem. The cable is used to download the photos to the computer. Download and read the manual from Olympus.

How do I load the stapler?


No you don't. We answer most things here.

If the stapler is like any of these

http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abostitch%20staple%20gun

You push the back in slightly to unlatch it and then drop it down a bit and the staple pusher comes out completely.

Yes, it's free ;-) Assuming that you really did buy an Olympus FE-4000 then it doesn't charge in the way you describe. It runs from a LI-42B battery, and that battery requires a plug-in charger; the one that should have been with the camera is a LI-40C, but if you buy a new one, it'll probably be a LI-41C. You have to take the battery out of the camera and plug it into the charger unit. I think you should go back to Staples, and tell them that even if it's the floor sample, it's no good to you without the charger for the battery. I hope your free ;-) answer helps...

Linking to a dvd recorder


Connect your camera to the DVD using 3 prong RCA cable.
The DVD recorder has 3 composit (RCA) inputs. the input names are also the channels names therefor:
Front panel input: F-1
Rear panel Aux-1: L-1
Rear panel Aux-2: L-2

Horizontal bars on playback plus sometimes no recorded picture


Not a solution sorry, but just to note that I have the same problem on TRV30e. It's intermittant an relatively rare, so haven't bothered getting it fixed. Seems related to certain types of DV tapes - if I change tape the problem often goes away.
