Are you sure you put them in with the correct polarity facing the right way. Its a common mistake.
Also try a "known" set of batteries just to make sure.
Good luck

SOURCE: How i can mount a new battery cover on Olympus

i just purchased a new cover for $33 from uscamera. part#omp vg4293. You will need a jewlers philips screw driver. Make sure you lay out screws where they came out. They're different. Looking at the bottom,Remove 1 screw under battery door. Two screws on bottom my mount. Open little door on left for mem card and remove 2 screws. Open little door on right side where cable goes, remove 2 screws. Then gently on end wher door goes, pull back cover back just enough to remove old door and reinstall new door. Press back together and install screws.

Even after putting a new fully charged battery camera shows battery empty


The reason you are still getting this error despite the fact that you've placed a new fully charged battery means that the battery is not compatible with the camera. The fact that it states this is because the battery isn't capable of handling the Olympus camera. I would suggest for you to buy a recommended battery pack by Olympus, or a rechargeable battery pack to avoid these errors.

Camera wont turn on


1. Are you sure the battery is fully charged?
You can charge the battery by connecting the Olympus USB cable to the camera and computer.
Or using the delivered wall charger. When charging the orange LED on the camera should light.
When fully charged, the LED is off.
2. If this does not help you, check if your battery is well seated in the camera.
3. Check if the battery is faulty by replacing it by another one.

I've been using Olympus 550 UZ camera for over a year now. I am facing problem with the life of battery though. Tried Energizer and Duracel batteries. 10-15photos and the battery is drained down. Is there...


Switch from alkaline batteries to pre-charged Nickel Metal-hydride (NiMH).
My best experience is with these batteries:
#1. RayoVac (pre-charged)
#2. Kodak (pre-charged)
#3 Energizer (rechargeable)

Find them at WalMart or online

"pre-charged" are new technology rechargeable batteries. They are GREAT! They outlast alkaline at least 15 times per charge.

Olympus 550 UZ battery


you may want to use lithium batteries... i find the rechargeables in most cameras to not last as long... also you may need to clean the contacts in the battery compartment with alcohol and let air dry
