Question about Olympus FE-110 Digital Camera

Zoom lense going in and out when turned on

I've noticed other people have had this problem also, so I'm not the only one. I only use brand new batteries when using the camera, and once they are flat I buy new ones, but the problem is when I turn it on, the zoom lense comes out, then after 2 seconds or so, it goes back in and turns off, I dont get a picture at all on the screen. The camera of course is out of the warrenty time, by about 4 months. Any suggestions?

Re: Zoom lense going in and out when turned on

Try taking the batteries out and plugging it in. If it powers on, put fresh batteries in and try again off the AC. Once it's powered up from the AC, unplug it and see if it stays on. If it does, try restarting it. Good luck.

Trying to get into photography. We travel a lot so we r always taking pics. Coolpix. We r wanting a nice affordable digital camera with great zoom. We've looked at Rebels and aren't looking into changing...

If you don't want a camera with interchangeable lenses, you should buy a bridge camera. Almost all brands have camera's like this. Although the sensor is somewhat smaller they still can make great pictures. Only when using these cameras in low light, it can give some lesser pictures. Now you can buy bridge camera's with more than 30 times zoom, for only a few hundred dollar.
On Amazon a coolpix 34 times zoom, 16 Mega pix, under $250 today. But all brands have camera's like this.

Since I have been a expert on Fix ya, I have seen many people write about the auto-focus of the digital zoom lens. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you in the future.

The Right Lens for the Job
There is another reason for using zoom lenses, especially when you are taking pictures of people. Lenses can alter the appearance of your subject, and wide angle lenses can distort people’s faces – especially if you are taking our advice and getting in close. So, by all means, get close, but if you are doing a portrait, use your zoom as well. Longer lenses are more complimentary and should be used even if you are actually physically close to your subject

What Brand is your SLR?
This is important because every mounting brace for all the camera's are different for example, and Nikon will not fight on a Canon, Canon will not fit on a Pentax and so forth. Some may fit, but the auto focus will not work. So make sure you know your brand and model number before just going out and buying a lens for your camera.

Here are six steps to help you buy the best lens for your money and the camera.
  1. Determine the focal length you'll need
  2. Decide if you want a prime or zoom lens
  3. Select a maximum aperture
  4. Choose between first or third party lenses
  5. Evaluate any extra features
  6. Read reviews and narrow your options

Can you use the twist-barrell zoom lens on a Sony DSLR camera (or any DSLR) when the camera is set to auto-focus? I've been told that this damages the gears in the lens if you do. Thanks for your help.

You can zoom completely independent of the focus.

Some lenses immediately override the autofocus when it senses you turning the manual focus ring. Other lenses don't, and you can damage the lens by forcing it. It depends on the lens, so you'll have to consult the documentation for the specific lens.

Have a brand new EOS 100D with Canon image

Have you actually cleaned the contacts or are you just looking at them and they "look" clean? Clean them with a cotton swab lightly dampened in rubbing alcohol.

Some batteries (especially the lower mAh rechargables) don't seem to have enough power. Try putting in a couple of brand-new (non-rechargeable) Duracells, and see if that helps.

Olympus SP-570UZ-zoom error

Had 570UZ for 2 weeks and "ZOOM ERROR" occured. Seemed hopeless. Changed batteries several times, bought new Alkaline.
No change. Finally decided that it is probably a connector problem.
Turned Camera Off. Held Camera by the lense barrel. Held palm of other hand and thrust the back of the camera ( LCD side) into the
other hand. The idea being to jostle the camera contents without cracking the LCD. Did this a couple of times, turned camera on and it works fine. At least for this evening. At least for now it seems like a classic component connector problem somewhere inside the camera.

Zoom won't work

wow alot of people have gotten this problem with the lense in this camera.

Well to cure this problem , firstly turn on the camera, ensure the lense is out ,Then GENTLY tapp on the lense in the direction that the lense feels uneven or unequal length to the outer ring (place that looks uneven).This should hopefully get the gears aligned once more.
