Question about Olympus FE-180 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens keeps moving in and out, plus, the screen is blurry

When I turn my camera on, the lens goes crazy. And when I look at the screen, it's blurry and the lens is zooming in and out. The batteries are charged and I can view the pictures. But when I take pictures, it turns out blurry too. What do I do> Identical problem with my FE-180. The crazy lens problem is intermittent -- the blurry pictures are 90% of the time. You can see that the camera is focusing -- but it overshoots the mark, and you get nasty pictures. Sometimes, I can lock the focus, and then walk to where the camera IS in focus -- but that's not a great way to take pictures.

    Thanks for your help. I'll see what, if anything, Olympus can do -- or opt for a new camera.

When I turn camera on lens error 111 shows up on screen and goes right off and lens does not come out


Make sure all the moving parts of the lens are free to move. If you dropped the camera or spilled something sticky on the lens part, it may be stuck and the camera cannot turn on.

Try this at you own risk:

1. Try jiggling the lens with your fingers while turning on the camera, helping it to pull out.
2. If there is something sticky keeping the lens from opening, try to use a warm damp cloth to dissolve it.
3. If nothing works, bring it to a repair center. You may also try the solutions provided in this other fixya article.

Have blurry image - how do you fix it- Logitech Quickcam for Notebook


On the camera, the plastic around the lens rotates, that is used for focus. Open a video feed from the camera and adjust it until the image is clear. The lens might also need to be cleaned if it has got dirty, use a qtip with water or alcohol to clean the lens on the outside.

FE-280 Lens Blurry Photos and no zoom turns off


You have a bad lens. Unless the camera is in warranty the cost of repairing the lens is higher than the value of your camera. The strange noise you hear is the lens motor trying to move the lens. One solution is to blow compressed air around the lens. Sometimes dust and dirt may jam the lens.

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.

Lens error and blurry photos


If your images are blurry and the lens wont move smoothly it is very probable that some kind of force on the lens has damaged a gear, barrel or even dislodged an element internally. When the lens detects an obstruction in its movement the camera reports accordingly,"lens error". You should have the camera checked by a service centre, it will most likely need the lens replaced as they are not serviceable.
