Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

2 Answers

I can turn on my camera, but the screen goes black and won't turn off.

When i turn on my camera The screen shows for about 2 seconds, and then turns off. I try to turn it off by taking out the battery but the lens stays out and doesn't shut off. I did turn off once but i tried to work with it again and it never turned back off. I tried recharging the battery but that didn't work either.

Did you push in the battery all the way so it clicks? I forgot to do that at first. =\

I turn it on and the screen is black and it can take pictures and do all that stuff but the screen is black and dosnt show anything

Please check if the LCD backlight isn't turned off by pressing DISPLAY botton (it may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon) several times until the screen appears, if this doesn't work perform the following reset procedure on the camera:
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.

Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.

If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....

This is an indication of a lens problem. It is quit possible that the camera received a knock or drop at some time. This would throw the lens out of alignment. A qualified technician can sometimes repair the lens. If not you are in for a quite expensive repair bill because the lens will have to be replaced and the camera reprogrammed.

The shutter in the lens is stuck closed. You need to take the camera to a shop where they will replace the lens assembly.

Casio Exilim EX-Z3 Displays turns off when taking a picture

I have the exact same problem. Casio wants the camera mailed in and charges $79 for a new LCD screen (if that is the problem). Any other suggestions?
