Default Olympus C765 Turning on by itself - Any cures?

This has happen to me before but it is doing it again. If sitting out on the counter the camera; Olympus C765 4MP; will turn on by itself. This drains the battery and if you are carrying it could damage the camera. ANy suggestions on the cause and how to fix it?

John-

Welcome to the Forum. We are glad you dropped by.

The inexpensive solution is to remove the battery or batteries when the camera is not being used. What has happened is one of those little solid state capacitors inside the camera has failed due to age. So it either a big repair bill, or get used to swapping the battery.
