Question about Olympus Camedia E-20N Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor autofocusing) the camera is great!

Re: Battery Problem

I've never had that problem, all I can suggest would be to fiddle with the contacts in the grip, or put a folded bit of paper behind the battery before you put on the little door to push it in further.

I have a Fuji MP/24 digital camera that worked perfectly for awhile, then out of the blue just stopped worked.


Please check the battery voltage and also the battery terminals, if the charge is low or the contacts are bad then it is possible that the camera will not power ON.
If these are in trim condition then the other possibility is a failure of the controller board, fault in the processor within or even a case of mechanical jamming or motor driver shorting - in case there is a momentary switch on.

Bought used BG-E5 online. Looking for instruction manual.


I've just looked around for it and can't find a .pdf either. Is there something specific you'd like to know? I've owned 3 BG-E5's and they are very simple devices (I still have one and its manual), which might explain why no one has bothered to scan and upload the book. Basically you remove the battery door on the camera, slide the extended part of the battery grip with the contacts up into the battery compartment on the camera, tighten the screw ring on the body to hold it in place, and insert one or two batteries in the tray. There is an on/off switch which either enables or disables the buttons on the grip itself. Alternatively you can use AA batteries with the other tray provided. Other than that, there's not much else to say about it!

Lens error


The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service center.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the Authorized service as you do not have to run around for spares.
If you arre able to open the camera , try and see if there is any mechanical jamming of the lens drive.

My camera pentax optio wp wont turn on. though is


If possible, check the charger output or the charge status of the batteries with a voltmeter. That will narrow the field for you. If the charger and batteries seem OK, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Lens cover doesn't open when switching on


If you've recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Either one of those problems will require professional repair. If it hasn't suffered from a drop, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may be to weak/worn to properly power the camera, or the camera may require professional repair.

Fuji FinePix S2 Pro won't turn on


I had a very similar problem a couple of years ago. Found intermittent power from AA source when battery tray was moved slightly while shooting. I ordered a new AA battery tray from Fuji ($50 I think), problem solved, no trouble since. The tray must hold the batteries tightly against the contacts inside the camera. Camera had only shot about 5000 frames when the problem arose. Hope this helps.
