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.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

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.

The FE-170 is not equipt with microphone for sound with video. Sorry. The only fix is to buy a different camera.Some with sound are:Olympus FE-190, FE-230, most Stylus brands and newer FE model cameras.

My camera makes a grinding noise please help


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,

I took the camera in my right hand and wacked it against my left hand.
It has been working for 10 months now and still taking great pictures.
