You have a faulty capacitor it the circuit of your camera
It holds the needed voltage to operate correctly
The cost to repair it generally is more than the cost of a replacement camera sorry to say

Hi, 1. Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth. Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries.
2. Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.
3. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens.
4. Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand.

Hope this helps. Shane

I have a 550 WP underwater cameraI I used it for 2 days on land but after a few snaps underwater it shut down and I haven been able to start it since . The batteries have been checked and are fully charged...


Unfortunately, these "waterproof" cameras don't always work as advertised. If the camera is still under warranty, I'd start there. It may be too late for this, but an old trick to dry out electronics is to put it in a bag of white rice for a few days to absorb moisture. It's a long shot, but I revived a wet cell phone once this way.

I can't turn on my Olympus Stylus 1010 digital camera. I tried new battery and new charges. Still nothing.


Did it get wet?? Are you sure battery is charging? You can send it in to Olympus repair dept. for a free estimate. http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp   Mine was still under warranty so everything was free and they had it back to me within the week. For a my sister's wedding. Unbelievable!!!  Great experiance!

My Olympus Stylus 850SW won't turn on. Thought it was a drained battery, got new battery, then thought it was my charger. Bought new charger. Battery is fully charged, camera still will not turn on.


Link

Good day,

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.

If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.

Regards.

It will not turn on/ keeps saying lens error


I just bought my stylus 840 olympus digital camera in aruba one and half weeks ago. Charged the battery and it worked fine for the two times I used it. Now it won't turn on. I charged the battery. Even bought a new one and nothing happens.
