Question about Olympus Camedia C-5000 Zoom Digital Camera
Fully charged batteries. tried 2 was working all of a sudden stopped. now it beeps and the orange/yellow lights blink and beep exactally 20 times when i try to turn it on.
Furrybutts (hehehe, like the name), This could be a lot of things and I'm sure there's a service guide out there that will tell us what 20 beeps and flashing lights mean, as I don't have one, let's figure it out.
Firstly, digi-cams and rechargables, eerrrrrgggg (Mr Burn's shudder) yeah they 'work', but for trouble shooting and iffy times, lets look at some half desent NEW alkaline batteries - for about $3-$4, it's worth it for this troubleshoot.
OK, did they work?, No?, lets look at the memory card. The cards are supporsed to be only put in one way, but ... lets take out the card, clean the contacts with a clean cloth/tissue, and put the card back in being sure it's in the right way. Still no go?
Take the card out again and try and turn the camera on without the card. Any changes?
This camera uses an XD memory card. I can't remember if it has an internal memory - what we're looking for is whether the memory is damaged and the camera is happy using it's internal memory or still erronous with no memory. Do you have access to another XD card to try it (this camera will take a MAXimum of 512mb, so don't try and card bigger).
Lets leave it at this for now and you let me know how things are going?
