Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera
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.
