Battery charger flashing red light

I have an Olympus Mju 700 that I haven't used for 3 months. Yesterday, I switched it on and the battery was low so I put it in the charger. For about 30 seconds, the light indicator on the charger was steady red as normal when charging. However, the red light starts blinking instead of being steady. I thought it might be because the battery was very low, so I left it overnight but til this morning, the red light is still blinking. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Clean contact points of both battery and charger with q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. This solved my problem with blinking lights and not charging of the batteries.

Hi, there I have the same problem as well. I read somewhere on this website that there is someone else who had the same problem which was a case of wrong battery, since she acquired that battery from ebay. Upon purchasing the battery from the right seller, she is able to charge it.

However, since my battery was acquired from the right seller, I dont see why my battery cannot be charged, so i called the call center, and the guy told me to clean up my battery charger (the area where the battery meets the charger. It works, so you guys can try too.

HIf the charger is flashing red then the battery was allowed to fully discharge. You can either buy a new battery or force the charger to charge the battery. The way you do this is by applying a voltage across the charging terminals while inserting the battery. I opened the case of my charger and attached wires from a AAA battery to the corresponding wires attached to the charging deck (+ to red and - to black). Then I slipped the battery into the charger and plugged the charger into tho wall. The light should illuminate solid red (no flashing). Then immediately (and carefully) remove the wires from the charger.

Try charging it for an hour even if it is indicating that it is already full in 10 minutes. If the battery still gets drained after a few shots, then you should change your charger.

Hi

Sorry to hear about your issue with the Olympus mju 770 SW. There's a couple of things you can check and try, before thinking about a repair or binning the camera and getting a new model.

1. Check the contacts on the battery are clean?

2. Clean the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment are clean?

3. Is the charger actually charging the battery? Try another battery or see if you can test the existing battery with a multi-meter to check there is some power in it.

It is fairly common for chargers to fail, so it's worth checking out but don't go spending money on a new charger unless you know it will fix your problem.

Hope this helps

There are several reasons why could happen:

1. 2GB is a lot of space compared to 16MB. The camera checks the card each time you switch it on.
2. Card is corrupt & should be reformatted.
3. Card is defective & should be replaced.

It's possible that your camera, being 7 years old, was never designed for a 2gb card. You can find cards of all sizes at amazon.com

Olympus MJU 760 Battery dies after a couple of


First step to trouble shoot. Connect a low voltage ohm-meter to the battery contacts inside the camera. Try to turn camera on. If you get a reading, write down the number of ohms. If possible, compare this with a brand new one, if store will let you. Or call the USA distributor. If ohms number is way low, you have problems inside the camera. If number is normal, the battery is no good.

Hi

Sounds like your camera was dropped and the LCD was damaged. The white screen you see is typical for a defective LCD screen. The only way to repair the camera is to replace the bad part with a known good one.

One solution would be to buy a defective camera online that has a good LCD screen and swap them out.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com
