PREPARING THE CAMERA FOR USE
Before you begin using your Olympus Digital Camera…
a.
Charging the battery
The Digital Camera uses an Olympus Lithium ion battery (LI-10B) and dedicated charger (LI-
10C). This is the only battery/charger designed for use with the Digital Camera. The battery 
cannot be charged while in the camera. 
Note: The Lithium ion battery is not fully charged when the camera is 
purchased. You must fully charge the battery using the charger before first use.
• Insert the Lithium ion battery into the charger as indicated in the illustration.
• Connect the battery charger AC cable as shown to a standard wall outlet.
• To fully charge the battery requires approximately 2 hours. The charge indicator light will be red 
when charging, and will turn green when the charging process is complete.
b.
Loading the battery
Note: The battery and xD-Picture card compartments are accessed by opening the 
respective compartment covers.
• Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow, and lift 
open the cover as shown in the illustration. (the direction indicated by the 
 mark on the cover)
• Insert the battery into the compartment.
• Close the battery compartment cover so that it pushes the battery in and 
slide the cover while pressing the 
 mark.
Note: If the battery compartment cover is hard to close, do 
not force it. Press 
 on the cover firmly to close the cover, 
and then slide it into position.
• To remove the battery, make sure that the monitor and the lamp at the 
side of the viewfinder are off. Return the camera to the upright position 
and tip the battery out. 
c.
Inserting the xD-Picture Card
The xD-Picture Card is where the camera stores your pictures and 
is available in a variety of memory capacities. The pictures you take 
with the camera remain on the xD-Picture Card even when the 
camera is turned off and/or the battery is removed.
• Open the connector cover while pressing the   mark as in the illustration.
• Open the card cover by pulling the card cover catch towards you.
• Insert the xD-Picture Card into the spring-loaded card slot as shown in 
the illustration. Push the card fully into the slot. The card will lock into 
place when fully inserted.
• To remove, push the card all the way in to unlock it, then let it return slowly.
• Close the card cover before closing the connector cover.
• Press   to close the connector cover.
Confirm you have installed the battery and xD-Picture Card properly by 
pressing 
. The “NO PICTURE” message should be displayed in the 
monitor. Turn the camera off by pressing 
 again.
