I have an olympus stylus 300. Just the other day, i charged it and when i went to use it, it did not work. I turned it on by pushing open the lense cover. It did nothing accept beep and the 2 lights next to the optical view finder blinked. I took the bat. our for a while, let it sit, and when i put it back in, it did nothing, not even the beeping and blinking.... ANY ideas on what could be going on?!

Re: Olympus Not working period
I have the same camera - and almost exactly the same problem. It was working fine one day, next day not.
I've done the battery thing - it's apparenty not the battery.
Actuall, I have it a good "whack" with my hand and got it to turn on once, but don't think that's really very good for it in the long run.
This camera is only about a year old - and I use it OFTEN.

The problem you are describing is a problem with the flash charging indicator switch inside the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.
Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries. I hope this works for you.

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.
