Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

1 Answer

When taking a picture tscreen is black and half pict is black

When you take a picture the screen is black and after the flash goes off what you've taken a picture of is half in shadow. We noticed that a shutter inside the camera lens is not opening up all the way which is why only half a picture is taken. We purchased tha camera in July of 08 and were wondering if we had the reciept if the manufacturers 1 year warranty would cover this.

As long as there are no markings on the camera showing that you may have abused it, the warranty will cover it. Try lightly flicking the lens (not the glass, but the sides) a few times and see if that clears it up.

There is something wrong with my flash screen. It's Black. Everytime I try to take pictures on My Finepix z fujifil blue digital camera the screen goes black, and when I go to see what I took a picture...


Flash screen? What? You mean even in pictures with flash disabled (and the flash does drag down the electronics in the thing; make a replacement using an LED lamp and circuit if you have a chance) it takes no picture and leaves you with a black LCD? Are you indeed using a good battery (they go bad gradually (depending on the case on how many times you fire the flash!)) New battery first!

Photos are fuzzy. At the time it takes 52 picts. a round. Would they be sharper if I reduce the picts?


Hello MaryRoth,
Photos are fuzzy due to many reasons and the main two reasons are that the subject is out of focus or the subject or the hand shake during the time of taking the snap.
Please make sure that you select appropriate picture modes (Macro, Portrait, Landscape etc..) when taking snaps. Make sure that when you press the click button half-a-way (known as AE mode), the subject is still in focus.
Try using a Tripod stand in case the hand is not steady or try increasing the shutter speed if its an SLR camera. That should help.

Let me know if that works.

Regards,
Srinivas
