Olympus FE 230 Problem

I have had an Olympus FE 230 for a while and just recently started having problems. I turned it on and it was fine but then maybe half an hour later, I attempted to turn it on again and it wouldn't work. I press the on button and the lens goes out, then there is a strange buzzing noise (that does not sound like anything the camera is supposed to make) and the lens adjusts itself, buzzes again, goes back in, and then goes out, buzzes, and stays there. The whole time there is no image on the screen. If I change the mode, I can see an image and take a picture but it is incredibly blurry and when I try to zoom in and then out again, it makes the same buzzing noise and the screen goes black. Any ideas other than bringing it to a store? I need the camera for an event this weekend. Thanks.

I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.

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.

I have an Olympus FE-230 and it suddenly starts taking black and white pictures. I don't know what I did, but how can I get color back?


I have had my Olympus FE-210 for about 2 1/2 years just recently it started to display an all black screen after I took pictures and like many of you I would turn it off and back on just to get 1 picture out. After testing it over and again I may have solved the problem: First: remove all of the pictures and memory card from the camera Second: go into the menu and find the reset button it will then display that the camera will return to default(factory setting) after I did this I was able to take over 35 continuous pictures using every setting and scene setting the camera has If this doesn't work I would suggest buying a new camera Hopes this helps!!

Broken LCD on a digital camera


Yes you can! I have the same problem and found an Olympus
fe-230 LCD on ebay.com for only 39.99 with free shipping; beats buying a new camera.

Just search {Olympus fe-230 LCD} and compare the location of shipment (domestic or international) and the prices. I am expecting mine to arrive in the mail this Saturday.

By the way, it is very easy to replace once you receive it. Just use the small screwdriver to open the camera casing, remove the defective one, and replace with new (no soldering required).

Note: Be careful when connecting the rear camera light to the LDC.
