Re: stripes

This is caused by a stuck shutter. Since the camera is under a year old it is still under warranty.

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.

Stripes across viewing screen

almost sure this is cause by flex circuit in the zoon lens that is damaged and need to be replaced. Almost always the problem of stripes in the picture is worst when you take pictures in full zoom mode because in this position of the lens the flex circuitis is fully streched. Thats all folks

Had the same issue with my wifes camera. Stripes going accross the screen. I figured that there might be a loose connection. I removed the batterys and three small screws (one is under the memory stick). Then I GENTLY removed the back, starting above the battery compartment. With the back exposed, I put the batterys back in and gently started playing with the screen connections. I got the screen working after playing with the lower, larger conection, on the bottom. Figured I had nothing to lose. Hope this helps you out.
