    I mistakenly disconnected my camera from the USB cable while
    downloading photos (a big no-no). Now it won't turn on. It just beeps
    at me.

    It is an Olympus Camedia D-560ZOOM. Has anyone else experienced this?
    Is there a way to "reset" the camera without sending it in for

    I called customer support but caught them off hours. Thought I'd check

  2. I mistakenly disconnected my camera from the USB cable while
    Remove the batteries and let it sit for at least 12 hours, to make sure the
    camera's completely drained. This will cause the camera to reset to factory
    defaults and maybe, just maybe, bring it back to life. Even better than
    just removing batteries would be to short out the contacts, but that's
    usually difficult to do.

    Turn the camera on.
    Remove the batteries.
    Let it sit for a day.
    Put the batteries back.

    Enjoy. :)


    PS> This will also erase any data you've written to the camera
    like your name, etc., so you'll have to put it back using camedia

    Have you considered a nice romantic evening, with soft music and wine?
