It could mean your battery or memory card is not inserted properly.. Mine also does this when my battery is low.

Why does the screen stay black when camera is turned on?


Did you try to press the display button several times? Most of the time you can cycle through different views on the display, with different information during record mode. One is display off.

My olympus FE-280 will not turn on. I put in a fully charged battery and when I press the power button the light on the back blinks red and the lens opens and closes about four times before completely...


There are many sides to the fault but it seems that you have a serious one. The camera needs to be opend to confirm the fault and so it needs experienced hands. The possible fault could be failure of the electronics, maybe the shuter drive, the lens drive or maybe the flash section. Assuming that your battery is good the fault can be related to a shorting or power related malfunctioning. Disconnection of one of the sectionmay be needed to confirm but an access to the camera electronics is a very sensitive job . so take help and hope the fault is economical. Good day

The camera is off but there is still a picture on the screen


"Off" might mean the lens has retreated, but that doesn't always stop the power as you can tell. Some Olympus cameras have a view mode (look for a button and icon near your view window). You may have accidentally bumped it. Push it again and the picture should turn off. You'll probably see more than one choice -- read the button labels to determine which is the right one.

My FE-230 is only 2 years old and will not turn on/off properly


This sounds remarkedly like a camera that has been dropped. Even by someone else! The odd noise it the can[mera trying to set the lens up and failing. The black screen is because the lens has not travelled the distance etc. multiple problems !
it needs a complete overhaul and may well be cheaper to ditch it and get a new camera
