Question about Olympus Camedia Stylus 300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Stylus 300 won't stay on??

The battery is completely charged first off. But when I slide open the front slide to turn on camera half the time nothing happens and then sometimes the lenses will extend and the screen will turn on but then by itself without colsing the slide the lenses retract and the screen shuts off. Is it possible that the battery is damaged even though it says it is charged? If I am fast enough I can get a picture off but then it shuts down without me closing the slide. I have had the camera since April and I am so frustrated by this I am ready to chuck it out the window.

Re: Stylus 300 won't stay on??

In the cameras I own, there is a setting where you can adjust the time the camera stays on. It's usually in the set-up screen. Is that setting miss-set?

Nikon j1 flash not working


Does the flash ready indicator also stay off, after you opened the flash and pressed the shutter release button half?
Because that could indicate there is not enough power in the battery to charge the flash.
If the light comes on, and still the flash does not fire, there would be a serious problem. My guess; that only can be solved at the service centre.
To be sure nothing else is wrong. Charge the battery first.
Then switch on the camera, open the flash, select fill in flash and press the shutter release button half. If the flash ready indicator lights, press the shutter complete and see if it works.

Succes

My Olympus Stylus 7030 won't focus and shuts off when I try to zoom.


If the rechargeable 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 andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Camera is new ... only two months old... will not stayed charged, I give it a full charge, put it away but next time I want to use it, the battery is dead.. it is turned off, nothing is on, but battery is...


This could be caused by a short circuit in the camera. As the camera is only two months old, don't recommend that you try fixing this yourself. Instead contact Olympus directly to inquire of warranty repair. If you live in the US, here's the contact info.

Won't take pictures.


The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor that is behind the lens cover door on the front of the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Camera turns on then immediately turns off


Quick turnoff is normally a symptom of low battery power. Make sure that you have fresh/charged batteries in the camera. If fresh power doesn't solve the problem you will need professional service on the camera.

Camera doesnt remain on


Based on the age of the camera, it's most likely due to the battery just losing its ability to hold a charge. After several years, the battery will just cease to accept a good charge, no matter how long you leave it charging. I'd suggest a replacement battery from one of the "aftermarket" battery makers (only because they are about half the price of the original Olympus battery).

Olympus Not working period


I have the same camera - and almost exactly the same problem. It was working fine one day, next day not. I've done the battery thing - it's apparenty not the battery. Actuall, I have it a good "whack" with my hand and got it to turn on once, but don't think that's really very good for it in the long run. This camera is only about a year old - and I use it OFTEN.
