Question about Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Batteries upside down

I accidentally put the batteries in the camera with polarieties reversed. Now it won´t start. Does anybody know if there is a way out of this? Maybe a fuse to be changed or some protection system that should be reset?

If the camera is under warranty send it to the service centre they will fix for free, if don´t u will need to replace a fuse inside, but it´s a pretty small one, and very hard to change as well to find in a electronics store.

take the old one out, put the new one in. start by removing the positive terminal connector and placing it so it will not accidentally retouch the positive battery terminal while you continue. maybe tape it in place. then remove negative terminal connector. then remove any hold down strap that keeps battery in place. now remove battery. reverse steps and you are all set. to remove terminal connectors, after you loosen the nut, gently twist them back and forth to slowly slide them up the terminal. to firmly place terminal connector on the new battery terminal, use a big socket upside down on the connecter and gently, but firmly tap it into place with a small hammer,etc. gently, but firmly, then tighten bolt firmly but not with great force. good luck.

After putting new batteries in my kodak easyshare z1285 camera it will not take pictures what could be the problem I have always had good luck with this camera

I would make sure that you haven't reversed the positive and negative terminals on the batteries try switching them from how you have them in now. If it takes a rechargeable battery try matching up the contacts with the contact leads in the battery housing or perhaps you have put the battery in upside down.

Or maybe the new batteries aren't new and you need to find some others to try.

When camera turned on it says lens error and then shut down

There is a capacitor dump that you can try.

Remove the batteries, wait 5-10 minutes.
With the batteries out, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds or so.
Put the batteries back in and your camera will start over (re-boot). You will know if it worked if you have to reset the date. But if that lens is really stuck you may be out of luck. The cost to repair it will exceed the cost of a new camera.

My camera was stuck with an open lens and saying ?lens error, restart camera.? I banged it against my hand a few times, the lens retracted and all seems to work as it should now. Thanks for the post!

Fresh batteries and will not turn on??

Batteries inserted correctly? Check manual. I know that sounds stupid, but people do it. If the batteries were ever put in upside down, it may have shorted the electronics.
Also, batteries CAN go dead on the store shelf.
Battery contacts corroded?
If all that's OK, then we can assume a power switch problem unless this model has some unusual special handshake to get the power past the switch, LOL. Please check your manual. Yes, this probly means repair.

Power on n off

sounds like a battery power problem or problem with the terminal of the camera ; you know the point where the battery meets the camera.
I would recommend a service center

Removing battery from Nikon Coolpix

I had the same problem and discovered that aftermarket replacement batteries may not fit as smoothly as the OEM battery. With the battery cover open, hold the camera upside down and keep giving slight tap on the top and sides, it should come out. If not, give it a few sudden jerks, while holding it upside down. The battery may slide out suddenly, so be careful to grab it in time, or do this on your bed. This solution has worked for me.

Will not operate

Be absolutely certain the batteries are installed correctly. The Kodak C743 battery compartment is poorly marked so that if you don't look at the underside of the flip-out door and see the positive and negative imprints (very faint) you may be installing the batteries upside down. This happened to me as I hadn't used my camera in a long time and replaced the batteries for the first time. Finally, I tried the batteries 'upside down' and it turned on right away.

Battery Low with NiMH (won't turn on) OK with Alkaline

Not the camera obviously - works OK Replace the NiMah batteries- get several sets and keep one set in the bag charged with one set in the camera. You may be able to 'refresh' the original batteries by putting them into a small flashlight and running them until the bulb goes out. This discharges them completely- then recharge. It is said batteries have a 'memory' so that a battery that is down say 50% and recharged will only recharge that 50% and the other 50% is lost for use. So you have to flatten the batteries completely
