Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

My Olympus fe-170 6.0 megapixel Digital camera

I love my olympus fe-170 digital camera, but suddenly the hinge that holds the battery door closed will not stay closed! Is there any way for me to fix it so that I don't have to put a rubber band around it? That looks pretty cheesy!

See if you can unscrew the battery door and find out exactly what the problem is.
Use the proper tools - screwdriver etc., etc. Check for any blockages - debris etc., etc. If the door is not broken you may just have to put it back on and tighten the screws that hold it closed.

Olympus fe-170 camera


Hey carjoe,
I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in one of our Best Buy™ stores, and an agent can look at the camera and if need be send it out for service.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Broken Lcd panel


Broken LCD screen is quite easy to replace on the FE-170 and FE-210. I have purchased cameras with bad lens but good LCDs on ebay pretty cheaply( compared to having Olympus repair camera).
