Question about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

"battery empty" on screen after I disconnected camera from compu

As soon as I disconnected camera from computer after terminating Olympus Master 2 photo program, the camera started showing "battery empty" on the screen. The lens will not go out when I try to turn the camera on, only the "battery empty" message. I think I may have caused a malfunction in the way I terminated from the computer connection and the Olympus Master 2 program.

Olympus master 2 disk does not load down from tray; needed is to install Olympus vr-310 camera disk in-order to move pictures from camera to computer file, say disk D or E; could you provide?

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

The camera only takes black/blank pictures. I have no LCD screen. I am a novice, and this is my first SLR camera. I purchased it used off of Ebay, the previous owner swears that it worked when he sent...

Turn your camera off, remove your batteries for about 30 seconds and let it reset to default. Then try inserting the batteries and see if this helps. a link to go to is: www.olympus.com, then select americas, then select support, then select your camera, then download your manual in PDF format.
there is firmware built-in software which the camera uses to work properly. As a software, you can update it by connecting the camera to a PC and running the Olympus Master software that should have been included with the camera.
Then Set (PC MODE) in the E-300's (Set up Menu) to (Storage). If the operating system is Windows XP, remove the memory card before connecting the E-300 to the PC.
In the Olympus Master software Help Menu, you can look for "update firmware" to follow the instructions. Good luck
But be forewarned that it will only work if you have the newest Olympus Master Software Update, Olympus Master 2. Olympus Master 1.1 will not be able to connect with the online server. Luckily, Olympus Master 2 is a quick and free download from the Olympus site.
Otherwise this could be an intermittent shutter problem or speed setting going astray?
Look like it may be a trip to the Olympus Repair shop



Try to set all menu items to default as much as you can. Some cameras have a reset to default setting or a button to reset to default.
After setting to default, try the camera again.
If all fails, this camera will need repairs.
If it is too old, and not worth it, it may be the best to sell for parts on a site such as Ebay.

    Battery empty message when connecting olympus sw 1030 to laptop

    Your recharged battery may be weak. May be time to replace.
    If the battery power runs out while the camera is connected to a computer or printer, the image data may be lost or damaged. It is recommended that you
    use the AC adapter. Do not connect or disconnect the AC adapter while the camera is connected to a computer or printer.Do not remove or load the batteries or connect or disconnect the AC adapter
    while the camera is turned on. Doing so could affect the camera’s internal settings or functions.

    Olympus E-300 Evolt - LCD Screen doesn't come & SSWF light stays on

    My camera is working again, but the problem is not completely solved. What I did was to put on the old lens, take out the battery then turn on the camera and finally put on the battery again. And now it works. But the problem with the new lens (Zuiko digital 40-150) continues.

    Vista not recognising Olympus camera on USB connection

    I just spoke to Olympus Tech Support.

    You have to download Olympus Master 2. (Their program is no longer called Camedia Master.)

    http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/oima_softwareMaster.asp

    At their main site, search for olympus master 2.
