    I have a 2 year old FE-170 Olympus camera and I was taking pictures this morning with no problem. I shut off the camera and about a half hour later when I tried to open it I just got a white sceen. I played with it and noticed that the flash would go off. I was able to upload the pictures I took and noticed that I had taken other pictures in attempting to get rid of the white screen so it seems the camera takes pictures I just can't see what I'm taking. I also cannot switch to look at the pictures I have taken. Cheri Honeycutt

Sounds as if this may be a repair issue with the camera. You may want to call Olympus customer service to discuss their repair policy. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

My olymous f2-20 has fresh battery and won't turn


The reset is in the setup menu but since you can't turn it on, that's useless. Are you sure the battery is inserted correctly? Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Olympus Digital FE-170 LCD screen is shattered.



You may be able to buy a new screen for your camera and fit it yourself.
It takes a bit of know how but can be done if you take your time.
Check the internet to see if a replacement screen can be bought for your camera.
Check the price if you think it's not worth the hassle
buy a new camera and get a bigger purse - better still buy a camera bag.

Broken Lcd panel


Broken LCD screen is quite easy to replace on the FE-170 and FE-210. I have purchased cameras with bad lens but good LCDs on ebay pretty cheaply( compared to having Olympus repair camera).

Blank screen


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say.
