Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
When i turn camera on it will not illuminate the back screen. if i change it knob to scene or guide mode it works fine and i can scroll through the options with ease. when i hit ok to change it over to taking a photo, all goes dark and the little orange/green light stays on orange. if i press the other button at the top for review, it goes right into review mode and the screen comes on again. please help. i bought it used and am wondering if i just got ripped. also, does it have any kind of internal memory? i've found that my regular memory card does not fit into this camera. whats up with that? what size card does it need?

Sounds to me like a circuitry issue if the camera has not been dropped or been in prolonged contact with moisture. An authorized Olympus camera repair shop is the only option I can offer. You might try resetting it by removing the battery for thirty minutes. Then reinsert the battery and try again. If there is no change, head for the shop or contact Olympus directly through www.olympus.com/contact

The Expert mode has tools to correct color problems, create special effects, and enhance photos. The Quick mode contains simple tools for correcting color and lighting, and commands to quickly fix common problems, such as red eye. The Guided mode contains tools for basic photo edits, guided activities, and photographic effects. If you are new to digital imaging, Quick or Guided modes are a good place to start fixing photos.
If you've worked with image-editing applications before, you'll find that the Expert mode provides a flexible and powerful image-correction environment. It has lighting and color-correction commands, along with tools for fixing image defects, making selections, adding text, and painting on your images. You can rearrange the Expert workspace to best suit your needs. You can move, hide, and show panels, and arrange panels in the Panel Bin. You can also zoom in or out of the photo, scroll to a different area of the document window, and create multiple windows and views.
