    See the lens opens fine but it just doesn't close everytime I try to power down the camera they close but open up again and its still a black screen, but if you look closely at the screen theres faded image of the numbers in the bottom like it would show if it was on. Theres a flashing orange light when i try to shut it off but thats it. I have Brand new chargable batteries in it, I have also tried other batteries. Please help its only 6 months old, not been used very much and never dropped.

    Yeah same for me.

    It works sometimes,

    so i know the aperture is opening.

    the lens even retracts etc.

    but soon as i press to take a picture it goes black

    it also seems to be taking MUCH more battery power :/

This is either a bad CCD or the lens aperture not opening. You could send it to or to olympus for an estimate. Might be looking at a $125 repair

When turned on screen is black but you can view menu and stored pictures

Since you can see the menus, did you try to go to the setup menu, and adjust the brightness of the screen?
It is in the setup menu, the line under Sound settings. Try to make the display brighter and don't forget to ok that one, because otherwise nothing will be changed. OK with the ok / Func button.

When trying to take pictures outside the screen goes blank.

Try to manually make it so that it is set to outdoor settings. Or maybe try low brightness and no flash.

My olmypus fe-310 digital camera has a white display screen. The camera still takes pictures and all of the controls work and it makes all the noises it's supposed to make but the display screen is blank.

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

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 $58.85 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.
