Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Olympus Problem I just got my FE-230 a few days ago. I used it a few time while I was on vacation but then I tried turning it on again and the red light flashed and then the lens went back in. It did this about 4 times in a row. I charged the battery and it still did the same thing. Please help!!

    I have had the camera for at least 6 months, and it worked fabulously, then all of a sudden -I went to turn it on and the optical zoom lens just keeps popping in and out and will not take a picture, then shuts off.



    I am at a loss, I really love this camera, and I am overseas not able to take it back or mail it to the place where I purchased it in Sugarland, Tx.

    Mine does the exact same thing. I had it for about three and a half months and it worked GREAT. Then just a few days ago it started this up. I turn it on, the lens goes in and out about four times, and then it just shuts off. Very unfortunate...

If you mean that it is a new camera - then returnit to the seller for replacement as it seems to be an internal fault.

I have got olympus digital camera model FE-230 purchased in 2007. few days back my camera got switched off while using. till then its not geting switched on. what might be the cause. plz assist me. ...


Hello,

Have you tried checking the battery? As you mentioned before, the camera was bought 3 years ago. And doesn't specify if you left the batteries inside the camera. Please try replacing the battery, otherwise send the camera to the nearest Olympus for technical check up.

Thank you

Problem with my Olympus FE-230


When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

Same problem


I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.

Camera


Hey Giaaxxmarie,
The problem with the lens going in an out, and the blurry images is most likely caused by damage to the lens that happened when you dropped the camera, and after time the damage got progressively worse. The return/exchange period for cameras purchase at Best Buy™ stores would be 14 days and even if you were within this period since the camera has damage a Best Buy™ store would not be able to exchange the camera. You could have it looked at by an authorized service technician, but repairs on digital cameras are often not cost effective.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
