Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera
How to disassembly FE-230 or FE-280,I want to repair it myself.Can you do it???Mr.Fixya Thanks
I just finished unsuccessfully repairing my FE-280. It had a sticking lens. I got the lens assembly out to try to clean it, but there is no way to get inside the zoom mechanism. Replacement lens assemblies are available to buy but I'm not a fan of Olympus mechanical reliability now.
Take off the obvious screws to get the back off. Don't try to remove the front. Note where every screw goes and keep them in order. Work the top of of the back cover off by rocking it. Unsnap the LCD from its clips and pull out the flex cable connectors. Remove the screws holding the perimeter of the black plastic lens. assembly. Beware that there may be a stored charge on the flash. located behind the flash and close to the screw by the lens assembly flex cable.
By the way, an initial cleaning by using a shop vac on the lens from the outside while opening and closing it worked for a while.

Should not try if you have ventured into anything like that before.
It may result in lots of screws on a side and lots of parts on other side.
Also its difficult to give instructions online.
