I don't understand what you mean with shift it to capture / camera mode.
To make a video, you press the button on the back side top right. To stop the recording you press the same button.
If you want to make a picture, you press the button on the top of the camera, that is inside the zoom lever.
When you want to view what is on the memory card, you press the button with the arrow, point in to the right, jut above the arrow pad on the beck of the camera.
Make sure you have a memory card in the camera.

SOURCE: problem in Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

SOURCE: Camera is on but LCD screen and viewfinder are both black

1. Press display (DISP.) button to turn the display on Do this when your camera is on and in shooting mode. This should fix the problem. I had to try it a couple of times before it worked.

SOURCE: olympus stylus 790 will only record video for 10 seconds?

The duration of higher quality videos is reduced to 10secs. You can only record lower resolution video for a longer duration by changing the type from Super High Quality (SHQ) to either HQ or SQ. This can be done by turning the menu whell to the video option, pressing the menu button, choose Image quality and scroll to HQ and press menu again. You will now find you can record for longer.

SOURCE: Can only take 5 second videos and alert shows on screen...

I had the same problem. Casio states in the manual that the camera is overheated. But this could not be true in my case, because the error appeared right after switching on the camera.
I found it must be a software error. After reseting the menu settings to default in the setup menu, all was fine again.

How can i fix my OLYMPUS 170 DIGICAM. It won't open and won't work also


See page 12. Using the computer it can take up to 10 hours to charge. I would remove the battery and charge in a separate charger. The Olympus cameras have been exceptionable for me. In the over 110K photos I have taken with mind I have gone through several batteries.

Caution it suggests not taking pictures with the AC adapter connected. However it says you can review.

Hope this has helped?

Why is it that, when I turn on my vg 170 the lense pops out, then returns but wont do nothing. Thanks


Servo motor encounters error when extending so returns lens to "safe" position. The Camera has no user serviceable parts. Decision time! How much do you like the camera? Likely the maker will not service it and a 1 hour repair session is a hundred bucks or more.

Be sure you did not correct your exposure compensation.
Try to switch to automatic. See page 29 of the manual for how to set exposure compensation.

Fe-170 olympus sound


From the specs i've read on this camera, it does not record sound in video clips taken.

The FE180 and FE190 do record sound.

Sorry for the bad news.

Blank Screen


Looks like CCD sensor problem. If this is the case your camera will work fine in playback mode but not in capture mode. Sensor has to be replaced.

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.

CCD sensor faulty and camera will not work in capture mode ... only playback mode. Have new CCD block installed and camera will work fine.
