Customer Question

Have an Olympus C-4000 Zoom. Has fully charged batteries. I was in the middle of taking pictures when it would no longer respond. No beeps, no lights, no warnings. nothing. Tried swapping the batteries around. Tried reinserting the memory card. Nothing. Any ideas?

If you are new to the site, this is briefly how it works:

2. I will give you the best possible Answer for your problem without the ability of actually being present with you.

The better you describe the problem, the quicker I can help ;-)

3. Remember to leave a Positive Rating after we're finished. it doesn't cost anything additional to rate kindly;-)

Is it completely dead?

Also how old is your camera?

Solved my own problem. One of the batteries did not fully charge. It is the fault of my charger, which goes green (menaing fully charged when the battery is taken out and nothing is in it). The batteries fit loosely in it and the battery in question must hav moved to a position whereby it was not making contact, thus the green light came on making me think it was fully charged. Anyway, I just wasted $19.00 to solve my own problem. Doubt I will need your services any further.
