Question about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The camera will turn on, but will not take a picture.

As soon as i turn the camera on the screen comes on, but when i try to take a picture it doesn't take it. And none of the buttons will work, the zoom works but as soon as I use it, it goes right back to normal. Then when I turn it back off it won't completely turn off unless i take the battery out. I'm not sure if it's water damage or from dropping it, and I don't know if I should have it fixed or not. Help! :(

Hi. my problem with my camera is that my niece play with it and she pushed the lens mechanism while the camera is on. now, the lens was stuck and doesn't comes out anymore. when i'm turning on


Force it out like it was forced in. Try to rotate the lens. Remember it has to be off. As soon as the lens is half way out, turn the camara on and the lens will go to its position. If not, while the lens is out turn it left or right until it's back to its position.
Good luck.
