This could be your problem. I haven't worked on your specific model camera however the idea and construction has been basically the same in all the cameras that I've opened and fixed. Inside the lens assembly, right behind the front optic there are two magnets that are opposite each other. These magnets are there to close the lens cover when it detracts. A common problem with these small compact cameras are that they are dropped or subject to some kind of impact and the magnets come loose (there actually put in with a cheap little snap to save money) and the lens can not retract. The camera stops functioning because the lens can't find it home position, thus your left with a very expensive paper weight. So what's the solution? Well, if your handy you could get yourself a pt. 0 philips and open the camera. Be careful of the capacitor (it looks like a battery), it can remain charged for several months and depending on the condition could hurt you bad. Once the cover is removed you can remove the lens assembly and further disassemble it. Make sure that you mark with a pen the position of the lens because you will have to reassemble it exactly or the camera won't focus. once you pull the CCD pickup from the back of the lens you will see the out of place magnet. Put the magnet back, add a very small amount of Crazy Glue to it, and reassemble in reverse order. Your camera should be as good as new. Good luck!

Cannot be turned on by power button,turns on with view pic button. Lens remain extended. Its just stuck in view pics mode


If these cameras are less than a year old then they are still under warranty, and Olympus repair shops( found on their website) will repair them for free minus shipping charges. The lenses probably have broken gears or have just been pushed out of alignment and can be repaired by someone mechanically inclined and very gentle with components. Can find good used and or possibly new lenses on ebay. Not that hard to replace.

MY FE 140 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


Lens will probabaly need to be replaced. Used replacement lenses can usually be found on ebay. Mechanically inclined person can replace them quite easily. Olympus repair shops are usually quite expensive and it's almost better to get new camera rather than have them repair it.
