Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera Jammed

I dropped my camera when it was on a few months ago, and the lens side that it fell first got stuck half way inside and the other half is out. Everytime i try to turn it on,a red light flashes and the lenses try to go in, but it won't bcause it's jammed. I thought that maybe i could push it in, but 'm afraid that it'll break or something. Hellpp!!!!

I got my camera fixed a day after posting the same problem. I called the manufacturer (my warranty is 3 months over the 1 year coverage) and a couple repairman , the repair charge will cost between $50 - $90...I said I'd be better off buying a new one. With that thinking, I figure it won't hurt it for me to push the lens back as hard but careful as I could, while twisting/wiggling the lens at the same time...Praise the Lord! It worked . It's operating as good as before.

Problem with my Olympus FE-230


When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

Olympus FE 230 Problem


I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.

If you mean that it is a new camera - then returnit to the seller for replacement as it seems to be an internal fault.
