Question about Canon Digital Cameras
SOURCE: using battery charger overseas
it's alway suggested that you simply use plug adaptors to change shape of plugs for overseas-do not reduce voltage since most all chargers including yours support 220 or 110

SOURCE: Not charging
Here is how you fix the problem (without using a 9V battery!).
The battery doesn't charge because it's been fully discharged.
What you do is you put the camera into the cradle. Now you see that the Red LED comes on solid for a while. It's charging for a few seconds. Then it starts blinking. When it does that - TAKE THE CAMERA OUT of the cradle.
Now put the camera back and repeat. Do this six or eight times. Each time what's happening is that the battery is getting a tiny bit of charge. After 8 times the LED will come on red and stay solid red.
Bingo, no problem!

Is the camera under warranty and registered with Olympus? If not registered, make sure you do that online first. It also extends your warranty to 13 months. If no receipt, It was a gift.
You most likely have a bad lens assembly (was it dropped?) or microprocessor. Here's your link...

A friend traveling through Hong Kong found one in a random electronics market; it works perfectly! I have a camera again!

How old is your rechargeable battery? Keep in mind the battery is only meant to last for a couple years max. It might be time for a new battery. Also, there are many inexpensive generic versions of the NB-3L battery that you can purchase these days. Here's one example from Amazon. There are many more there, just type NB-3L in the search block. Remember to read the user reviews.

Well, getting it wet voided your warranty. Remove the battery and card...don't try to turn it on to avoid short circuits.You can try to bury it in some dry, uncooked rice for a couple of days. Water , especially salt water, is disastrous to cameras. The chance of it working are slim and even if it does for awhile, it may stop altogether later. Keep your fingers crossed.
