Can view memory card but wont power up to take pics
Olympus, Stylus 300... When I put in a fully charged battery the camera will not power up for picture taking but I can view the pics in quick view mode.
The battery is several years old so it may be possible that its just enough power to view the data on the card but not to extend the lens. I really dont know. Any ideas???

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success
Are you using the SD card that came with it? or you purchased it separately? It's possible that the SD card is not being detected. maybe that is why it is saving it in the builtin memory instead of the card. did you try a different SD card? please try another card.
its the card not the camera.
i think you fingers have come into contact with the gold bits on the xd card.
try wipping the card and putting it in several times,if all fails buy your self an olympus 1gb xd card H TYPE. [email protected]
the best compact of all time was the Olympus C-70 Zoom Camera which can be found 2nd hand over ebay.
No one can expend efforts to diagnose, repair or let alone talk to you about what may be a 25 to 30 dollar memory card. I've had dozens of such failures but I deal with a fleet of devices and these are spread over the world now.
The card, if the camera will not format it is tossed and you get a new one. Whatever you plugged it into is marked as suspect and I'd not do that again.
