Hi, I have an olympus FE-115 and have only had it for a few months. It was working fine last time I used it a month ago. Checked it just before I went on holiday and It would turn on, but the screen was blank and the function lights would flash, then it wouold turn itself off. New batteries, not damaged. HELP!!!
You tell me that you tried new batteries. Have you tried a set of NiMH batteries? They are the best for digital cameras. Please try a set, preferably ones rated 2200 or higher. If this doesn't help, the lens could be jammed.
Hang onto the batteries though, because they are rechargeable and can be used in anything that takes AA batteries.

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 $51 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.
You can try to reset the camera back to factory settings to see if the flash will start working again. To reset: Have the camera in shooting mode - press the down arrow - camera will indicate reset or cancel - highlight reset and press ok - the camera will be back in factory settings - see if flash fires - if it does then fine - if you see a red flash charging icon blinking on the screen this is a repair issue and the camera needs to be sent to Olympus for service.
Format your camera's internal memory and also format any memory cards you insert.
Use a program called Recover4All to see exactly what is in your camera's internal memory.
Then insert a memory formatted memory card and take some pictures. see if they will upload.
Check any adjustments that have to with resolution. Do they look more pixellated when you look at them on the computer. Or do the pictures look out of focus?
You should check under the Shooting guide #3 (blurring background) to see if this helps you.
If none of the settings (ISO settings, resolution, lighting, image stabilization mode) help you, contact HP next.
This camera, if I recall correctly, is a fairly basic camera. I would contact HP and see what they can do for you. Since the camera is close to the warranty period of one year, they should cover it under warranty.
