Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Date/time function My camera is an Olympus FE-170. Date/time function is no longer accurate. I tried taking the batteries out for over 36 hours, but the screen for setting time/date still does not appear. How can I make the time/date correct?

Actually, it was easy. My fault. I didn't realize I could keep scrolling through my "set-up" option - from "menu" to the date/time icon. Once I found that, I just had to work my way through it. The only thing is, it's set up as a 24 hour clock, and I would prefer it as a 12 hour AM/PM. Haven't figured out how to change that yet, but it's not serious. At least the date will be correct now.

Need correct day and time on Olympus FE 170 digital camera


How do I set the date and time on the FE-170?


To access the clock controls, turn the mode dial to any shooting mode except [GUIDE] and then press the [MENU] button. Next, press the Right arrow on the arrow pad to select the [Setup] icon. Using the Up or Down arrow, navigate to the menu item depicting a clock. Press the [OK] button to access the clock settings feature.
Set the year, month, day, hour, minutes and date format using the following procedure: Use the Up and Down arrows to select values, and press the Right arrow to advance to the next item. (The FE-170 uses a 24-hour clock.) When all information has been entered, press the [OK] button to set the values. Press [MENU] twice to exit the menu.
To set the time precisely, with the cursor on either "minutes" or "date format," press the [OK] button as the time signal strikes 0 seconds.
The date and time settings will be returned to the factory defaults if the camera is left without batteries for approximately three days. Custom settings may be canceled more quickly if the batteries were only loaded into the camera for a short time before being removed. Before taking important shots, check that the date and time are correct.

on rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital

Broken Lcd panel


Broken LCD screen is quite easy to replace on the FE-170 and FE-210. I have purchased cameras with bad lens but good LCDs on ebay pretty cheaply( compared to having Olympus repair camera).

Red Flash mark while taking photo


It sounds to me like you are not waiting for the camera to charge the flash when turning the camera on or between shots. It seems you are using 1700mAh batteries and most modern digital cameras are better off using 2500mAh batteries. Your camera was released in September 2006 so it is considered "modern". With 1700mAh batteries, your flash (warm-up) recycle time time will be rather long or the amperage may not be enough to fully charge the flash unit. I highly recommend Duracell 2500mAh rechargeable batteries.
