    my olympus Fe 170 doesnt work at all anymore after a series of technical problems like when i turn the camera on.. the orange light lights up and the LCD display doesnt show anything.. then after a few tries... it will finally turn on but the view in the LCD is blurry and when i take a picture of it.. it really is blurry. and lastly, since my sister was trying to fix the camera she pushed the lens in and with too much force exerted on it.. the lenses went in permanently. now, whenever i try to open it.. there will be a clicking sound like the lens are trying to come out... what should i do?

You may want to call Olympus Customer Service as this is probably a repair issue with the camera. They will be able to explain their repair policies and procedures to you. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Dropped camera leads to zoom error and blurry pictures. HELP!


Your lens was damaged and probably needs service. This could be expensive so get an estimate first to help you decide what to do.

Zoom error, Fujifilm J150w


I just pulled apart the camera, everything inside was intact. No cogs broken. couldnt find anything to fix (not a camera expert by the way).

In desperation even put some WD40 on the lens barrel - still no luck.

Camera turns on - barrel is stuck out. Wont zoom, wont go back in and wont take a photo.

Daughter's camera and she says she didnt drop it but just saw it on her desk with the lens out...

Would be good if someone could shed some light on the problem.

Zoom error


The lens got out of track. Try to have them back by forcing gently the lens in ou out with your fingers. If they are bent, force them straight. Hope it helps.

Broken zoom


The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:

Zoom Error


Lens unit has to come out to see whether the problem can be sorted out without spares going in. But unfortunately you have to go from the back on this model which means disconnecting and removing all 3 pc boards and the LCD screen and then loosening the lens mounting to slide the lens out from the back. You may have to dismantle the free lens further once it is out to see exactly what the damage is ( if any ).

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

Zoom and shutter not functioning


that is a symptom of being dropped and stuck in a mode.
it requires total dissemble of the camera to fix or replace the lens. your lucky it takes pictures at all. most cameras refuse if the lens is stuck.
