I have had to return my C750 to Olympus twice in the past month because it will not turn on. I just got my camera back two days ago, and it is not working again. Has anyone else had this problem?

Not here. Do you have an AC-DC power adapter? Using the best kind of batteries, etc.?

Dirty battery connections or a weak cell would be the usual reasons.

I'm using the olympus rechargeable batteries that came with the camera, as well as other rechargeable batteries and an ac adaptor.

I am having the SAME problem with my Olympus not powering up - also my Fuji FinePix SAME Problem. Only ever used rechargable batteries. Can someone tell me how to clean the battery connections or otherwise help myself?

Please check the polarity. a spray of electronic contact cleaner may help

Olympus finally sent me a new camera. It is the C-755, they said they did not have a C-750 available to send to me. I had to fight to get a new camera and not a refurbished one. I've had it for 4 days and it's still working!!

Did you use an ac/dc adapter? That can screw up the contact points, and the camera will not get any juice from the batteries, even when the adapter is removed. The camera thinks that its still on adapter power. It's always safer never to use ac/dc adapter. It has caused so many problems in the past, and most owners are not aware of this.

Yes, I was using an ac power adaptor. My new camera that they sent me also stopped working. They said it was nothing I did wrong, they replaced two circuits and returned it to me. However, I am not going to use my ac power adaptor to see if that helps.
