    Too much glare maybe. Could be your unit is so sensitive to glare or ultraviolet. Commonly when the camera lens is directly infront of the sunlight. See manual for clarification.

I think that's normal. I also have experienced the same always when the screen is exposed to sunlight. Try adjusting its brightness or use an anti-glare protection.

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting...


I have exactly the same problem. I am writing an email to Olympus for further advice. I beleive there is some replacement policy as this seems to be a manufacturer problem.

When i turn it on the screen is white and dose not show any thing


Can you take pictures with it? Try to take pictures and then try to download to PC. If it is ok, then the LCD screen may be bad or the Ribbon cable may be misaligned from its connector. Open the camera (a few screws). Lift the pressure plate in the LCD ribbon cable connector gently, and pull out the ribbon cable. Reinsert it and close the pressure plate. If that doesnt help, I suspect the LCD. You may need to replace the LCD.

My screen is white will take pictures but have no view finder


You either have a bad LCD screen or a poor connection of the LCD flex cable to the camera system board. What you are seeing is the backlight of the LCD with no image.

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.

In daylight every photo whites out can you help


Take a look at the settings on your camera. There should be a way to change the white balance. White balance is used when you shoot a photo in the direct sunlight. Have you ever noticed the whites in a picture suddenly look blue? This is because your white balance is turned off or not in the correct mode. The same goes for your pictures that look too white. Take out your camera guide if you have one and look up White balance. You should be able to find the correct settings for the pictures you are trying to take.
Hope this helps.
