Question about Olympus Camedia D-380 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Won't come on

I loaded my 5-year-old D-380 with re-chargeable AA batteries and it didn't come on. So I re-charged them, just in case they lacked juice. Now, I flip open the cover and camera still won't go on. I don't think it got wet, but maybe.....Any suggestions?
Thanks

    The same happens to me, but I think it's becuase my dog knocked it onto the floor from my desk. But I still don't have a clue how to fix it.

I figured out the problem. The D-380 seems to have problems using rechargable batteries, so i'm afraid you'll have to use some regular AA's for a bit. It worked for me, so I hope this helps. It's probably just something wrong with your rechargeable's.

What is the best way to use re-chargable batteries in hand held phones?


you should let the batteries fully drain every week or so. The only way to get more life is to buy batteries with higher milli-amp-hours. I use a lot of AA NiMH batteries. The used to be 1600mAh, now I can get them in 2900mAh. That is almost twice the capacity. When I had my Motorola phone I bought an extended battery from www.batterybuyer.com and it changed my phone that needed to be charged every 2 days with an old battery, to being charged every 14 days! Batteries only keep their efficiency for 3 to 4 years before they need replacing.

I have had my i phone for three days but will not charge beyond 50..percent...help


If the re-chargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My camera won't turn on...it is brand new


Brand new as in you just opened it out of the box? If thats the case you have to charge the re-chargeable battery first, then put it in the camera and it should work fine. Try giving the battery a charge first if you haven't already.

The power keeps turning off, the phone is fully charged. I turn the power on and 5 min.later the power is off and I don't receive calls.


How old is the phone? You might be falling into a case of a dead battery. Usually the life span of a good battery can last up to 2 years with good charging care. However, without proper care, chargeable batteries can die within a year. Try taking the battery out and plugging the phone in and seeing if that works. If it does. you may just have to buy a new battery.

This camera takes 2 size AA batteries, preferably the longest life batteries possible. I use re-chargeable batteries, and when they have about given up the camera does the same thing; prepares to open the lens and then switches off. I am confident that you will have success with new re-chargeable batteries, and a close attention to their charge life.

Have fun using this wonderful model for recording life events. Comment on this fix for me when you are successful...

Which battery model fit for Panasanic ES4025 s?


The battery actually is exactly AA size, just has pins added. Having wasted a bit of time serching for a solution on the internet, I finally put a cheap AA non-chargeable instead of the original one. Just bent contacts in the shaver a little bit. The battery lasted about an hour or 10 shaves. In the end I didn't have to throw away a good shaver just for a dead battery and now don't need to carry a bulky charger when travel, but will try to use a ni-mh rechargeable one day.
