Question about Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Zoom broken my camera was on then bed & the zoom was out to normal level. i tripped and fell on it & now the inner bit of the zoom is wedged at an andgle and wont move. i tried turning the camera on to see if it could move it at all itself and the mechanism tries 5 times then gives up and the camera turns off without turning the screen on. Does this sound fixable as i only got it xmas '07 and my dad never took out the insurance. If yes any ideas where I could take it/send it to get it fixed? I live in the Milton Keynes area and really don't want to have to get a new one (well cant afford to)

The impact damaged has jammed you lens assembly. I see these all the time in my shop. If it can be repaired without parts a shop should be able to do it for you for around $75. If it needs a new lens however it will not be worth the cost (the parts alone would cost about $50). I think though from your description it is probably repairable without parts. Please contact me if you need any more help

Broken battery compartment door switch


The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

I have a crapped out unit (PCB Board $250.00 part!!!! + labour) that I am either going to sell for parts (complete with all accessories that came with it), or try to find a broken unit that I can steel the PCB board from. Let me know what you end up doing with it.

Try resetting the camera. More than likely you are going to have to send it into repairs but try that first.

Photo quality


It will be grainy a bit specially in digital zoom and even in optical zoom to the full level it might become grainy as camera is unable to absorb all the light from distant object......

Faulty zoom mechanism


Your lens will need to be disassembled, and most likely replaced.  If the lens housing inside is not broken, it can possibly be repaired.  Otherwise, the lens assembly will need to be replaced.

Edge of battery door was broken


Yea I did same to my Kodak digital camera. You may find someone who can fix it - its just a small little part to replace. But in my case, I went a camera repair place where they gave me the "i dunno" look & said it could take weeks cost this much or that much. Anyway, I discovered that by wrapping electrical tape around the lithium battery I could wedge the battery in so that I could use the camera, yippee. And that worked great until the entire camera had a heart attack & died.
