Question about Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom Digital Camera
As I was taking a picture the screen flashed white and then the camera lost all power. A battery change did not fix. Does anyone have a clue as to what happened and if it is fixable or even worth fixing?

Thanks for the reply. Dead batteries were the first thing I checked. I have rechargeable's and before I went outside to take pictues I put fully charged ones in. I too have been reading everything I can on this camera and one review said it was very fragile. I don't remember dropping it but it may have been bumped. I also read another post where a "fuse" had gone bad in a camera of another brand and the way the screen flashed I'm leaning toward this being the problem. Either way I have the feeling that it's not worth the price of a fix. So now I need to pay my son back and seeing that I'm addidicted to the digital photography I need to invest in another camera! lol

The camera has high battery consumption like the following: "My one beef is the battery life. I have since read a couple of reviews that claim the 'low battery' indicator comes on too soon. If you're clicking like crazy and using the LCD screen, it will drop quite quickly. I tend to set up my shot with the viewfinder, use the screen to double check the framing then turn it off and shoot."

The problem is in the battery holder of the CR1220
-Take out the CR1220 battery (the little round one).
you replace it, put a bit of aluminum foil against the back, between the
battery and the plastic holder, to make it a nice tight fit. One layer won't do
it, but don't put in half the roll.
back in. Done
fresh battery & clean it all with alcohol = good idea as well. Worked for me.
