Troubleshooting Battery “The camera does not work even when battery is installed.” Insert recharged battery in the correct direction. “Charging the battery” (p. 10), “Loading the battery and the xD-Picture Card™ (sold separately) into the camera” (p. 11) Battery performance may have been reduced temporarily due to low temperature. Take the battery out of the camera, and warm them by putting them in your pocket for a while. Card/Internal memory “An error message is displayed.” “Error message” (p. 45) Shutter button “No picture is taken when the shutter button is pressed.” Slide the lens barrier down. Cancel sleep mode. To save battery power, the camera goes into sleep mode and the monitor automatically turns off when no operation is performed for 3 minutes. When the shutter button is pressed in this state, no picture is taken. To cancel sleep mode, press the zoom lever or any other button. If the camera is left unoperated for a further 12 minutes, it turns off completely. To turn the camera on again, slide the lens barrier up and then slide it down again. Wait until #(flash charge) stops blinking before taking pictures. ● ● ● ● ● The camera may automatically stop working if the internal temperature rises due to extended use. Remove the battery and allow the camera to cool. The outside of the camera may become hot during use, but this is not a malfunction. Monitor “Difficult to see.” Condensation*1 may have occurred. Turn off the power, and wait for the camera body to become acclimated to the surrounding temperature and dry out before taking pictures. *1 Dew drops can form in the camera when it is suddenly taken from a cold location into a warm, humid room. “Vertical lines appear on the screen.” Vertical lines may appear on the screen when the camera is pointed at an extremely bright subject under a clear sky and so on. The lines do not appear, however, in the final image. “The light is caught in the picture.” Shooting with flash in dark situations results in an image with many flash reflections on dust in the air. Date and time function “Date and time settings return to the default setting.” If the battery is removed and left out of the camera for about 3 days*2 , the date and time settings return to the default setting, and must be reset. *2 The time until the date and time settings return to the default setting varies depending on how long the battery has been loaded. “Setting the date and time” (p. 13) ● ● ● ● ● d4377_e_oima_000_book_cs2e.indb 44 d4377_e_oima_000_book_cs2e.indb 44 7/1/2008 12:09:09 PM 7/1/2008 12:09:09 PM

48 EN Appendix Battery and charger This camera uses one Olympus lithium ion battery (LI-42B/LI-40B). No other type of batteries can be used. Power consumption by the camera varies depending on which functions are used. During the conditions described below, power is consumed continuously and the battery becomes exhausted quickly. The zoom is used repeatedly. The shutter button is pressed halfway repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the auto focus. A picture is displayed on the monitor for an extended period of time. The camera is connected to a computer or printer. Using an exhausted battery may cause the camera to turn off without displaying the battery level warning. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged at the time of purchase. Charge the battery fully with the LI-40C charger before use. The provided rechargeable battery usually takes approximately 5 hours to charge (varies on usage). The supplied LI-40C battery charger is used only for LI-42B/LI-40B battery. Do not charge other type of battery with the supplied battery charger. It might cause explosion, leaking, overheating or fire. • • • • • • • • • • • Camera care Exterior Wipe gently with a soft cloth. If the camera is very dirty, soak the cloth in mild soapy water and wring well. Wipe the camera with the damp cloth and then dry it with a dry cloth. If you have used the camera at the beach, use a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung well. Monitor Wipe gently with a soft cloth. Lens Blow dust off the lens with a commercial blower, then wipe gently with a lens cleaner. Battery/Charger Wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use strong solvents such as benzene or alcohol, or chemically treated cloth. Mold may form on the lens surface if the lens is left dirty. Storage When storing the camera for extended periods, remove the battery, AC adapter and card, and keep in a cool, dry place that is well ventilated. Periodically insert the battery and test the camera functions. Avoid leaving the camera in places where chemical products are handled since this may result in corrosion. • • • • • • d4377_e_oima_000_book_cs2e.indb 48 d4377_e_oima_000_book_cs2e.indb 48 7/1/2008 12:09:11 PM 7/1/2008 12:09:11 PM

49 EN Using an AC adapter An AC adapter is useful for time-consuming tasks such as image downloads to a computer or when running a slideshow for a long period of time. To use an AC adapter for this camera, the multi-adapter (CB-MA1/accessory) is required. Do not use any other AC adapter with this camera. Using your charger and AC adapter abroad The charger and AC adapter can be used in most home electrical sources within the range of 100 V to 240 V AC (50/60Hz) around the world. However, depending on the country or area you are in, the AC wall outlet may be shaped differently and the charger and AC adapter may require a plug adapter to match the wall outlet. For details, ask at your local electrical shop or travel agent. Do not use travel voltage converters as they could damage your charger and AC adapter. • • Using an xD-Picture Card A card (and internal memory) also corresponds to the film that records images in a film camera. Otherwise, the recorded images (data) can be erased, and retouching is also available with the use of a computer. Cards can be removed from the camera and exchanged, but this is not possible with the internal memory. Use of larger capacity cards enables you to take more pictures. Do not touch the contact area directly. Cards compatible with this camera xD-Picture Card (16MB to 2GB) (TypeH/M/ M+, Standard) Using a new card Before using a non-Olympus card or a card that was used for another purpose in a computer or other device, use [MEMORY FORMAT]/[FORMAT] (p. 32) to format the card.
