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

Try using brand new fully charged NiMH or NiCd batteries.

My computer crashed and lost all pictures. I have a olympus camedia d-540 zoom camera. I need a disk to download. where can I get


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

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!

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.

Camera batteries drain quickly


Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.
