Question about Olympus FE-110 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera lens comes out and goes back in when I turn it on.

If I turn the camera on, the lens comes out fully, stalls, then goes back in. It comes out one more time, stalls and goes back in another time. Then it turns off. I've tried new batteries and everything, it still happens. While the lens is going out and in, the screen is blank, and the red camera light is on.

Sounds like the lens can't get into the proper position. Any possibility of damage to the lens?

When I turn the power on, green power light comes on, lens comes out half way but then freezes and green light goes off, camera unresponsive. battery is fully charged and I have taken it out and put it...


This is a common problem , generally indicated as lens error. The problem is often caused by dirt or dust in the lens gears.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • Main board faulty.
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

You can attempt tapping gently the back of the camera while turning the camera on. Sometimes this can help the lens out.

If that does not work, then the lens must be taken apart.

I summarized the problem in this article: Lens Error.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair from manufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

Stops taking pictures

I have the similar problem, I turn on the camera and after the lens comes out , red light blink all this time, and suddenly it powers down without retracting the lens back in.
The battery are fully charged AA 2400mah / 2650mah Duracell at 4.0 ma with load test. I was wondering if there is any circuitry problem.? Any experts in digital camera electronics please respond? Trick: To bring back the lens back in for safekeeping i trik this, i turn it on while it is reading the memory etc and after a sec or two i turn the knob to off, this way lens goes back inside.
I have read other brands also have their cameras lens sticking out and never going back inside.

The lens will not come out

Hi there.
Face the camera towards the floor and firmly tap the back of the camera while turning it on, this should hopefully free the lens so it can open, make sure that the batteries are fully charged or at least new.

Good luck and thamks for using FixYa!!

Camera wont stay on, please help

Possible that the Lens Mechanism is out of sync. If its still within warranty just bring it in and have it serviced. If not I may be able to help you out but it requires dismantling the camera,..

If any one knows a quicker and easier way maybe they can post it here But as far as experience goes thats what happened with mine,

Hope this helps
