My E-100RS is just plain dead.
I used it the same way as I always do and then I turned it off. Next day I pick up the camera and.. it wont turn on. I suspected the batteries and recharged them. The batteries are Olympus Camedia Ni-MH 2100, rechargeables. I've measured them and they all have 1,2V. I tried to plug in an AC adapter but nothing happens. Checked the batteries contacts as well as the camera's and they are perfectly clean. I really love this camera. I have it for 3 years now and I've taken thousands of pics with it. It's a superb camera and I'm really upset with this. If anyone already had the same problem or an ideia to solve this issue, I would realy appreciate it. Thx in advance.

If your camera is not dead, It is surely dying. Perhaps just a flat cable lost connection inside your camera, But more likely the electronics is on the end of life. My DX7590, started to act strange a few year ago, but I managed to shoot pictures still. I could not look back what I had shot, but I still made lots of pictures, till also shooting was impossible. (I could get the pictures from the memory card with an external card reader on my computer. My next step was again (a better) compact, but since over 2 years now I'm using a DSLR. I have learned a lot about digital photography with my Kanon camera's.
Sounds like you may have fried the camera by trying to turn it on, your best bet would be to put the camera in a bag of rice for a few days to see if that'll dry it out, if after that it won't work still the camera's unfortunately dead.
You left your camera on for a couple of days? I'd think your batteries are completely drained. The S203 doesn't charge batteries via the USB port. Try charging the batteries overnight using the supplied MH-63 charger.
If that doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we'll go on from there.
The image sensor (CCD) is dead. This is a known manufacturing problem and may be repaired at no charge, even though the warranty has expired. Here's a link to a detailed explanation; http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
if you are using "AA" size, do NOT use typical alkalines in your camera, they die too fast. Buy rechargable NiMH batteries and a charger at Walmart or somewhere. These will hold a charge longer for you. Also be sure to turn off teh camera when not shooting because the camera is always draining battery life when "on."
