Question about Olympus FE-310 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus Fe-310, lens is messed. Possible sand in it but not sure.

The camera will not turn on. The red light blinks and the lens makes the noise when you press the power button but it won't work. I am not sure how the lens is stuck. And the screen won't turn on, even when plugged into the computer.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

My olympus FE-280 will not turn on. I put in a fully charged battery and when I press the power button the light on the back blinks red and the lens opens and closes about four times before completely...


There are many sides to the fault but it seems that you have a serious one. The camera needs to be opend to confirm the fault and so it needs experienced hands. The possible fault could be failure of the electronics, maybe the shuter drive, the lens drive or maybe the flash section. Assuming that your battery is good the fault can be related to a shorting or power related malfunctioning. Disconnection of one of the sectionmay be needed to confirm but an access to the camera electronics is a very sensitive job . so take help and hope the fault is economical. Good day

Camera lens will not open, tries a couple of times, stops, tries 2 more, red light is on, then it turns off.


Some problem with the lens.
Was it impacted in any way or subjected to water exposure, sand or dirt?
Make sure the battery is up or new.

The power button does not turn the camera on.


Your lens is probably damaged or stuck(such as beach sand particles caught in it) and needs to be cleaned out or replaced. Olympus repair shop can do this(olympus site online) or a camera shop. It is also possible that the batteries do not have enough power in them.

Sand in Lens of Olympus Fe-310 Digi Camera?


Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.
or

Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.

BLACK SCREEN WHEN TURNED ON


This is either a bad CCD or the lens aperture not opening. You could send it to mackcam.com or to olympus for an estimate. Might be looking at a $125 repair
