Question about Olympus FE-220 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White screen with black stripes, black spot

I went kayaking and brought my Olympus FE-220 with me in a pelican box. Unfortunately the box let in moisture, and the camera got humid with salt water. I thought it was dried out, but a week later, all that showed up on the screen were white and black lines, and this black blob at the bottom (they also show up when the camera is turned off, if you angle it right).

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Sounds as if the camera would need to be sent to Olympus for service. You may want to call their Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

This is a problem with shutter not fast enough opening to take a picture indoor shows the horizontal lines. In sun light it is too slow and over expose the picture. Not worth the trouble to fix, buy another camera?

My Olympus FE-340 camera went from making very light striped pictures to completely black with nothing showing up. Can you help? It is only aroung 15 months old.


Hi there,

Your camera had a CCD (image sensor) problem. And this is something recognized by all digital camera manufacturers.

Olympus is distinguishing themselves by offering to repair affected cameras, even if they aren't displaying the problem yet. Their free repair policy is extended for up to four years from the original purchase date.

I had this on xmas day and was fine for 1st 50 photos then a 2 cm area of the picture on the screen has disappeared. although the photos download ok its rather annoying for a new camera that was not cheap


If this is a black spot that's in the same place on the LCD screen I would say that there are several pixels that have burnt out and definitely a warranty case.

Unfortunately the camera does not have a menu option to take images in black or white or sepia. You can take them in color and then using photo editing software modify the image to be monotone or sepia in color.

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $60.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.
