Question about Olympus Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend.
Have you checked the contacts in the bottom of the battery chamber for cleanliness?

What could be the cause and solution to battery drain on my Olympus FE-110?


You've likely got a problem with the internal battery sensing hardware. I had a similar problem with a small Canon and solved it by getting a new camera for way less money that having the old one fixed.

Hi, well this is a pretty common problem, with this and many other cameras of a similar sort, what happens is that inside there is a power conditioner circuit, components, usually a "pass" transistor in this circuit partially fault, and increase the current draw from the battery dramatically, and this causes it to go "Flat" very quickly.
There is little that can be done DIY, what has to be done is to take the camera to an Olympus service center, and ask for a "Quote" for the repair.Then you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace.

First step to trouble shoot. Connect a low voltage ohm-meter to the battery contacts inside the camera. Try to turn camera on. If you get a reading, write down the number of ohms. If possible, compare this with a brand new one, if store will let you. Or call the USA distributor. If ohms number is way low, you have problems inside the camera. If number is normal, the battery is no good.

Battery drainage


20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batteries.

The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion batteries. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and they still work great.
Good Luck

Batteries fail in very short time


I had the same problem but I fixed it by buying 2 rechargable CRV3 batteries and the charger. At the time such batteries were not common, so although I got a brand that I never heard of (CTA) and they have been great, They last a long time and power is no longer an issue.

Olympus c-160 battery problem


Check your user manual to see exactly what type of batteries you can use. Not all AA batteries will work in all digital cameras. Some require a specific brand of batteries or specific number, even though, they may be physically the same size. Hope this helps :)
