Question about Olympus D-545 Zoom Digital Camera

Open Question

It powers off as soon as I turn it on-NOT the batteries

When i try to power the camera on, the red light blinks to indicate there is power then it powers right off. I first thought it was the batteries, but then i purchased new batteries especially for electronics and it does the same thing. Also, the lens does not move in or outward anymore, it's stuck in the outward position.

SOURCE: Camera wobn't turn on & lens stuck in out position

Apparently the problem with my camera shutting down and the lens staying out, was the rechargeable batteries I was using. They basically lkicked the bucket, and were no longer working., I bought a new set of lithium batteries and the camera is working fine now.

SOURCE: lens is stuck

Hi,
This happens when the camera is in the ON state and the battery power drains out completely. Please recharge the batteries or insert charged batteries and the lens would get closed automatically.
Please let me know if that works.

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

battery power/and or lens motor/ if lucky the lense connection, (Try removing the lenses and puting them back) may be a bad electrical connection.

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera,...


Because the camera is what is technically known as 'Portable'and is designed to work purely from the internal battery. the Power Adapter merely charges the internal battery

Ok all mine had the same problem however problem has been solved! The power cord that plugs into the charger is a common cord you may have laying around the house. I switched the power cord to my charger and the dreaded blinking stopped! Its just a bad power cord to the charging unit! Hope this helps!

Should the power light be green or red, when I turn camera on it shows a green light then turns red


Red light indicates that the camera is out of charged., Try to charged your battery for 3-4 hrs if you encounter flashing red on a fully charged battery you need to call kodak 1 800 235 6325 ext 12

You can charged you camera using 5V AC Adaptor or a USB cable taht attached into the computer

Only red light bliking, no screen


the red blinking light is indicating that you have a missed call, unread message, or unread email.
which makes sense if you cant see the screen.

holding the power down for 5 seconds doesnt do anything?

how about pulling the battery and replugging it in and turning it on via the Red hangup/power button?
this is known as hard-resetting the handset.

if its under warrenty you might be able to get the screen swapped out.

Blinking red indicator light


Hey pollyannac,
The red blinking light probably means either the flash is recharging, or the camera buffer is full and it is writing files to your memory card which the lcd monitor should read Busy while the camera is writing the files. If it is the flash recharging then you could try using more powerful batteries such as the Canon NiMH AA batteries. If the problem ends up being the camera is writing images to the memory card you could try getting a memory card that has a high write speed. These memory card are usually more expensive, but in my opinion well worth it. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

WON"T WORK


sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)

Camera won't turn on ...just there is red lamp is workoing


Here is the link to the user manual for your camera if you need it; ftp://213.61.96.30/camera%2fmanuals%2fdc_c500%2fdc_c500_um-english-cd-0822.pdf The red lamp, if it is flashing/blinking indicates that the self-timer function is on - check page 15 for how to turn it off. If the light is steadily on, and it is the battery/power status light, then the indication is that the battery is faulty or not charged - possibly the fault is with the charger, but more likely a new battery will solve the problem. To get a new battery, go to; http://support.BenQ.com and they should tell you where you can get one, if no luck with them, please post back with which part of Egypt you are in, and i can try to find you a dealer locally. Hope this helps :)
