Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
I have any olmpus fe-170 - practically brand new - everything seems to work except that when I put it on to take pictures it automatically turns off
The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $61 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

sounds like the Zoom mechanism is getting stuck (the system is trying to protect the mechanism by shutting off).
you need to send this off or take it to be fixed. these compact digital cameras seem to have problems like this all the time,
