The camera should be fully functional with just the AC adapter. I hope you're using the Olympus adapter and not a substitute. Some substitutes will work ok but others can cause problems. The AC adapter output should be 6.5 volts at 2000 ma (2 amps).

Why does canon camera shuts off when trying to download pics


Usually it's because the battery is getting low. Cameras will often shut down to prevent losing data. Make sure the battery is fully charged or the camera is plugged in if it has an external power adapter.

Which cable use to download olympus c-2020 z


You don't need a cable.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

How do u charge the camera? What does the charger look like?


You can charge the batteries in three ways
1. Using an AC power adapter. Connect the AC power adapter to the camera trough the power adapter connector below the usb connector on the right side of the camera (looking from front). Then connect it to the AC power outlet.
2. If you have an optional HP Photosmart camera dock, plug the camera in the dock and then dock the camera. Same thing if you have a wireless dock.

While the battery is charging, the battery charging light in the camera blinks. Once the battery is fully charged, the blinking light stays solid.

It is better that you read the user manual for the camera. If you dont have one, download it free from the web: http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/mytrevo/myTrevo.jsp?page=man

The charging procedure is given with figures on page 6.

Camara will automatically turn off when trying to turn it on ....what should i do?


This could be a sign that the battery needs to be recharged.
From the user manual page 16, "Before using the camera for the first time, you must charge the battery. Attach the USB cable to the AC adapter and then plug the end of cable with the indicator light into your camera."
The indicator light will change from red to green when the camera battery is fully charged.

Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom - always reads low battery and then "dies"


Safe way - Try using brand new and fully charged NiMh.

Not for novice - Battery contact points may need cleaning. Use contact cleaner with a cotton swab.

Do not try - Spraying contact cleaner or WD-40 in battery compartment.

Last option - Service center.

The battery is an internal rechargeable one and is not removable. Just plug into power source (usb cable) to fully charge before use.

AC adapter power not enough for XP?


I use WINXP Pro and there is no problem. I can only offer the steps that I use for you to see if it makes any difference. Sometimes the sequence can be the answer.Try this twice, once with the battery in the adapter and once without the battery.
1. Power down PC.
2. Disconect camera from PC.
2. Power up PC.
2. Make sure the camera is off.
3. Remove battery from Camera.
4. Plug adapter into mains (with or without battery)
5. Plug camera into adapter.
6. Plug camera into PC with firewire.
7. Switch Camera on
