Digital camera won't take pic

Hi,

My name is Danetta. I have a Olympus FE-210 digitial camera. When I turn it on, to take a pic,it beeps,and makes a clicking sound. It won't take a picture,but I can review the pictures,I've already taken. Please help. It's a camera I had given me last Christmas,it's hardly been used,no more 200 pictures taken from Christmas 2007,to Summer 2008. I carried it back to Walmart,located in Gander,NL. But,they were no help whatsoever. Can you help me please?

    I have had my camera 1 1/2 years and just before Christmas is started the problem of not allowing me to take a picture. I can view all I have but won't take one. The lens comes out as if to take a picture but then it just makes a noise like it is trying to go back into the camera but it does't. It just stays out and then I have to push the camera button quite a few times to make the lens recede back into the camera.

    Of course my warranty is expired. What in the heck happened to it?

    Thanks for any information.

HELLO NEWFIE,

YOUR CAMERA HAS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM THAT THE FE-210 HAS. YOU MUST PAINSTAKINGLY TAKE APART YOUR CAMERA PIECE BY PIECE. MAKE SURE TO CAREFULLY REMOVE THE SMALL SCREWS THAT ARE UNDER THE COVER PLATES FOR THE USB, VIDEO OUT AND DC INPUT SLOTS. ON THE RIBBON FOR THE FACE AND THE LCD, YOU MUST "LIFT UP" ON THE RIBBON LOCKS. SOME ARE BLACK AND LOOK LIKE A TAB AND SOME ARE WHITE AND LOOK LIKE A "PUSH IN" TYPE OF LOCK. THEY BOTH SWIVEL "UP", NOT PULL OUT!!! RETAIN THE WHITE LOCK AS IT WILL NEED TO BE PUT BACK IN THE SAME WAY. ONCE THE FRONT COVER IS OFF, REMOVE THE LCD THE SAME WAY. IT WILL HAVE 2 SCREWS IN OPP. CORNERS AND A RIBBON WITH A BLACK LOCK. ONCE THE LCD IS REMOVED, REMOVE THE MAIN BOARD BY REMOVING ALL OF THE SCREWS IN THE CORNERS AND THE ONES THAT HAVE "GOLD" AROUND THEM. THERE IS A SMALL SCREW UNDER THE DOOR FOR YOUR BATTERIES, DO NOT FORGET TO REMOVE THIS ONE ALSO. NOW, LIFT THE MAIN BOARD UP SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE SMALL GOLD GEAR NEAR THE SHUTTER OPENING. TAKE A SMALL SCREW DRIVER, SUCH AS THE ONE YOU HAVE BEEN USING AND ROTATE THE GEAR. THIS WILL FIX YOUR PROB. NOW REVERSE THIS PROCESS AND YOU WILL BE UP AND SNAPPING.
