Problem with my Olympus FE-230
When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

Olympus battery charger flashes red when battery is inserted.
"Another way I found was when this happens, to push the battery to the
point the light will turn on, when it starts flashing slide it off then
back on. Do this a few times so it charges a little, then you should be
fine to leave it on."
I tried to do this with my LI-10C Olympus charger and it worked..The blinking red light turns to solid red..Thanks for the info...Now I won't be bothering to buy a new batt.or have my charger checked..

Can i transfer pictures to my ipad
With a card reader, you can move all the photos from your digital camera to computer. After that, you can take advantage of iTunes to transfer photos to your iPad. This should be easy, but please note that the RAW files takes much more storage space than the JPEG files, so you'd better take a look at your storage space of your iPad before you import photos from camera to iPad.
After importing photos from camera to iPad, you can view them with the Photos app on your iPad. The RAW files can also be read on your tablet, and supported RAW files are exactly the same as your Mac computer does.

No function is performed, "write protect" message
OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might
sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the
memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.
the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to
try the card in another camera.
the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader
in your camera.
If you open you sd slot and look inside with a
sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot
there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work
1. When no card is inserted / no write protection ,
the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked
card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the
card is lock.
Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the
sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence
the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera
without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card
It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because
of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you
can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the
base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to
If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a
short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled
to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.
feel free to contact me if you need further information

Can flash be switched of
It sure can! Take a look at the 4 way selection button that surrounds the OK button.You'll see the lightning bolt looking symbol on the right side. When the camera is set to take still pictures and not in macro mode you simply push to that button on that right side and the camera will show the possible flash settings listed on the left side of the LCD screen.
To select a setting push up or down on the same square section button. If you highlight the circle with the line through it, and then press OK to set it, be no flash when you shoot.
From my experience using many different digitals I've found the flash to be pretty much the main problem when trying to get a good picture and have found that turning it off and providing more external lighting is always the best way to get a good consistant picture.
On most cameras with Macro mode options, the flash will be turned off automatically since it's going to be adjusting for very close up shots. Depending on brand can be set for 2-3 feet and as close to 6 inches. I found using the Macro setting to work best for me on any shot that is within 3 feet or closer. I shoot hundreds of eBay pictures every week and always use Macro and never a flash to get the most realistic color reproduction and clearest shots.

Charged battery and camera will not turn on
Clean the charger terminals (the metal) and the plastice tray.
Make sure light has gone from read to green for the battery in the charger.
You may also need to take a can of air (dust off or something similar) and blow out the area the battery goes into.
Also make sure the battery is installed correctly.
I hope this helps.

Charge battery and put in camera and camera won't turn on
It could be the battery, the charger, dirty contacts either on the battery, the charger, or the camera. And, of course, there's the possibility that the camera itself is bad.
If you have a voltmeter, try measuring the voltage between the battery terminals. Clean the contacts on the battery, charger, and camera with a clean damp cloth. Try charging the battery again.

Deleated photos that I want. How can I retreive
If the photos are on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since you deleted the photos, you may be able to recover at least some of the photos. Do a Google search
for "data recovery software" and select a program for you computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.
