Problems with Batteries

I just bought an Olympus D-540 zoom 3.2 megapixel camera. The very first time I used it, the battery went down right away. I put new batteries in there and they too went down before I was able to take like 4 pictures. I put the batteries AA into a radio shack battery checker and all of them still had juice in them in the green high area. I am hoping that there is nothing wrong with this camera because I bought it out of state when I was in South Carolina and now I am in Florida, and cannot return it to the army base i bought it from. Is this common? Can anyone give me some insight into this? I know that digital cameras use up batteries fast, but this fast? before I even had a chance to take like 5 pictures? Thanks Melinda

Re: Problems with Batteries

Try using brand new fully charged NiMH or NiCd batteries.

My olympus camera won't charge properly


If the camera 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.

I recharged the batteries (Ni-MH) for my Olympus Camedia 2020, but still the camera will not turn on. Do I need new batteries? Where can I buy them?


Firstly check your charger. I was having problems with my batteries packing up after about 1 hours use. Now I only charge 2 at a time (its a 4 battery charger) and the problem is no more.
There is a limited life on batteries, check how old they are and if you've had them more than 3 or 4 years, I suggest you buy replacements. John

My Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom sometimes battery registered as full and I go to take photo then message battery empty. Can anything be done?


Try using "fully charged" NiMH batteries. If you still experiencing "low battery", you may have a "leak". Your next option is the service center.

My olympus camedia d-540ZOOM writes " write protect" on its screen... so, I can't take pictures, can't edit them.I can't even move the pictures to a pc inserting the memory card directly...


Take your memory card out and move the tiny plastic switch on it to "unlock" or whatever it says. If that doesn't help, try another card. If that still doesn't help, come back and we'll try something else!

Camera lifeless


You may have a short circuit in the camera and may have to send it in for further inspection.

Zoom Error


We had this problem for about 2 weeks, we discovered that having the camera auto retracted after the "ZOOM ERROR" message, giving the camera couples of light slaps (slap the camera's LCD side and aim the camera down), this fixed the camera right away

Battery empty


Are you using Lithium batteries?

I have seen other brand digital cameras do the same thing with new alkaline batteries.

Lithium batts are more expensive, but they outlast several sets of alkalines, so they actually end up costing less, compared to usage.
