Question about Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera
I have an Olympus Mju 700 that I haven't used for 3 months. Yesterday, I switched it on and the battery was low so I put it in the charger. For about 30 seconds, the light indicator on the charger was steady red as normal when charging. However, the red light starts blinking instead of being steady. I thought it might be because the battery was very low, so I left it overnight but til this morning, the red light is still blinking. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
Hi, there I have the same problem as well. I read somewhere on this website that there is someone else who had the same problem which was a case of wrong battery, since she acquired that battery from ebay. Upon purchasing the battery from the right seller, she is able to charge it.
However, since my battery was acquired from the right seller, I dont see why my battery cannot be charged, so i called the call center, and the guy told me to clean up my battery charger (the area where the battery meets the charger. It works, so you guys can try too.

Clean the points on the charger and on the battery and the red light will stop flashing and stay on constant red till the battery is fully charged

HIf the charger is flashing red then the battery was allowed to fully discharge. You can either buy a new battery or force the charger to charge the battery. The way you do this is by applying a voltage across the charging terminals while inserting the battery. I opened the case of my charger and attached wires from a AAA battery to the corresponding wires attached to the charging deck (+ to red and - to black). Then I slipped the battery into the charger and plugged the charger into tho wall. The light should illuminate solid red (no flashing). Then immediately (and carefully) remove the wires from the charger.

dear sir, thank you...take care
the first suspect is your battery,which is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours with the original charger,because the charging volt varies from battery to battery of the same brand and using this universal charger is definitely going to harm ur camera very worse,kindly go for the original charger and charge the battery and then put your camera on........
if still the problem is the same ,the problem is usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not to function,the only solution is to flash ur cam software from the nearest olympus service centre and it is going to be done free of cost,as your camera is under warranty .......
thank you.....take care................
