Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
When I turn the camera (Olympus Fe-170)on the lens extends as it should, however when the camera should normally show on the screen that I can take a picture it freezes and turns itself off after about 5 seconds. There is a faint whirring sound. When it does turn itself off, the lens doesnt retract back into the body of the camera. It stays extended. I have tried resetting (by removing all cards and batteries) and changing batteries for new ones. The lens isn't jammed as far as I can see (when I plug it into my computer via USB the lens retracts immediately). Any thoughts? Any ideas? Or am I just going to have to go to a shop? thanks all! I turned my camera on, then the lens won't come back the way it used to. It's making this whirring sound and when I turn it on again, it says "Lens error, restart camera." and I do it over and over. It still won't come back.
Did someone spill some pop or anything near the camera? If so, then you'll need to clean that out with rubbing alcohol
