SOURCE: put in new batteries and it still says low

Which batteries you put in it?
Digital camera use a lot of battery and can't run on normal AA batteries. You need rechargable batteries minimum 1000 mah. 2000 mah would be good. Try these batteries and your problem will be solved.

Please rate the answer. Thanks.

Why won't my DateXX DS-883 Graphing Calculator work, it has new batteries?

Try a Q-Tip soaked with alcohol and clean the battery terminals. Also, WD-40 works well to. If batteries are left in too long after a total discharge, it can produce acid which will eat away the plating on the terminals. If that's the problem, WD-40 is the best choice to use.

Olympus ds-2400 voice recorder is saving files as ds2 - how do we convert them to dss

The DS-2400 were one of the first Olympus DVRs to use the new DSS Pro (.ds2) format.

We later discovered that you will need to update the firmware to in order to have it revert to the standard DSS format (.dss)

You will need the DS-2400_FirmwareUpdate_DssClassic to make this happen. All certified dealers will have access to this firmware update.

Stay classy,

Problems with memory on Olympus DS-2

I've had the same issue. The surefire solution is to go into the Sub Menu and FORMAT. It wipes the entire internal memory clean -- so be sure you've offloaded everything you need. You'll also need to reset the recording quality, if you have a custom setting, because it defaults to the highest quality. But you'll have all your space back.
I believe when files are deleted via computer, the DS-2 doesn't update itself to recognize the space is freed up. That's why data is gone but memory is not freed.  Good luck.

I lost original CD for DS-2; how to get software? is the download link for DSS player but you will have to call Olympus for a replacement key. I have found it works best to SAVE and then install the download. They did not give me a hard time about getting a new key.

Why my camera wont turn on?

When the two led's blink, that is telling you that the batteries are dead. Try replacing the batteries with FRESH ones and that should help.

Olympus digital camera wont turn on

First: thank you, for suggesting battery terminals. It was failing to power on intermittently for some time; the problem became more-and-more frequent until it would not come on at all. Cleaning the terminals saved my camera! Second: for others, let me suggest plain old pencil erasers as a good way to clean electrical contacts (something I learned from HO model railroads as a kid). A vigorous rub with the brand new eraser on the end of a pencil cleaned the battery contacts inside the camera.
