I do not use my camera all that often but when I do, it is hard to turn on if it turns on at all. I thought it was the batteries, but they work fine in other electronics. I have tried using alkaline batteries and rechargeable ones and I get the same result? It looks clean inside and the batteries seem like they are coming in contact with all parts of the camera. What could be the problem? Should I only put the batteries in when I will be using it? What other problems could it be?

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.
If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.
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, the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.

your camera is C653 is that correct? try to use the recommended battery for the camera., If you want a non recharge battery try to use the Alkaline battery., If rechargeable battery the best battry you can use is the KAA2HR battery a type of Ni-MH battery that specialy work for the camera model that you haved., You can also used the AA Lithuim but i recommend the KAA2HR
CHECK THE FLEXABLE TIENS IN THE CAMERA. AFTER MANY USES THE TIENS GET PUSHED IN. USE A SMALL HOOK ASSEMBLY AND PULL THE TIENS OUT TO TOUCH THE BATTERY.REMEMBER TO BE CAREFUL AND NOT PULL TO HARD ON THESE, THEY CAN BREAK.THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME ABOUT MY CAMERA NOT COMING ON!!!
Hey bray598, According to the manufacturer this camera comes with AA alkaline batteries so unless you bought defective batteries the ones you purchased should work fine. I would make sure the batteries are inserted properly, and make sure when you turn it on the battery cover and/or the memory card cover are closed. I hope this helps. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead.
