Question about Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera
Can this problem be resolved easily
You can glue the end of a toothpick into the sensor, or do some quick surgery on the circuit board.
" Overriding the electrical system:
Theelectrical parts of the switch are soldered to the camera body with 2soldering points, on LH and RH of the switch, if you look at the bottomside of the camera (lift up the little black plastic sheet that coversone soldering point). i left the switch in place and connected the 2soldering points with a small copper thread from an ordinarymulti-thread electrical cable, using a fine pointed 15W soldering iron(5 Euros). i dont know if this action damages the camera and dont knowthe function of the switch, but my FE-140 is working again !
i forgot to mention the first steps:
Removethe camera back by removing all 7 screws on the camera body. Pull offthe back carefully. It is 1 loose plastic piece. Then you are able seethe switch environment (i needed a loupe)."

The problem is a broken micro switch. If you are familiar with soldering on micro circuits you can get the part from Olympus it is called a card cover switch. Otherwise, send it into an authorized Olympus shop.
