I've had my Olympus camera since 2002 now and it's worked fine (Unless you count that I had to buy a $40 dollar SM card, but that turned out to be great for me!) until now.
Two days ago, I tried to put in a battery (rechargable). It worked fine before, but now it just doesn't want to come on. I tried using the regular batteries, and that didn't work.
The only time I've had problems with my cameras (I have a Canon T70 too and the on and off power button fell off when I touched it for some strange reason) is when I expose it to 70 degree weather. Could this be the case? Or is it because I take it everywhere and it clinks in my purse? It looks to be in pretty good condition.
