Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
When I turn the camera (Olympus Fe-170)on, the lense extends as it should, however when the camera should normally show on the screen that I can take a picture it freezes and turns itself off after about 5 seconds. However when it does turn itself off, the lens doesnt receed back into the body of the camera. It stays extended out of the camera body as if ready to capture. I am finding it very hard to describe these symptoms of a fault in the camera. Is there a way I can reset the whole camera to see if that will help? Or obviously any other ways I can repair my camera? please may I have a solution asap. thanks.
Eureka - I found the problem you describe at least for my camera. I figured it was broken anyway, so why not take a look inside -- Well here goes - - -
As you disassemble you will see the seated LCD screen. Well, underneath the screen when you unscrew the screws holding it down are two ribbons holding the wires like in a computer. One of mine was disconnected. When I reconnected it - - everything started working! What a simple solution!
Note - take the batteries out before reassembly as you don't want to fry anything when the little screws slip out of your hand and fall into the circutry.....
