Customer Question
I have an Olympus...

I have an Olympus DS-7000. 2-3 years old. Recently, won't hold charge. Looses charge in about 1-2 days with minimum to moderate use. . Bought new battery and still won't hold charge. Simple fix or do I need a new one?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your camera? How old is it?

Sorry, it is an Olympus DS-7000 voice recorder

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Bought new battery, but no improvement. Voice recorder still looses charge with minimal use.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

It is not a camera. It is an Olympus DS-7000 voice recorder

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The voice recorder may be shorted inside... esp. if any overheating can be detected by touching it.

But this does sound like a case for either repairs or replacement.

(How many years or months have you had the voice recorder in question?)

I think 2-3 years

Then it is out of warranty, I'm sorry to say, and repairs would be at your expense.

(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)

You might try, once, cleaning the terminals in the battery compartment, after removing the batteries, first by rubbing off with a fresh pencil eraser, then by wiping the terminals off with cotton swabs moistened in rubbing alcohol, then letting them dry off for 5+ minutes with the battery compartment door open, then try the voice recorder again.

Also try leaving the new battery (if rechargeable) on the charger for 6 hours straight, just once, before trying it again.
