SOURCE: broken Lcd panel

Broken LCD screen is quite easy to replace on the FE-170 and FE-210. I have purchased cameras with bad lens but good LCDs on ebay pretty cheaply( compared to having Olympus repair camera).

    SOURCE: Windows 7 driver for an olympus FE-210

    Currently, you can't.

    Olympus have not yet released a Windows 7 driver and given that it is an ultra low cost model I doubt that they'll be in any rush to do so.

    All you can do is to try and find a Windows 7 compatible xD card reader, but given that xD is now an obsolete format that might also prove to be difficult.

    The only remaining option will be to install your current driver onto Win7 and try to run it in compatibility mode.

    Sorry there's no straightforward/guaranteed fix here, but these issues always arise with an upgrade to a brand new O.S. version and it often takes up to a year to find out which products will be supported on the new O.S. and which ones will be consigned to obselescence.

    The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

    Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

    Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

    Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

    Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

    Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

    Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

    Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

    Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

    If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

    You can also have a look at THIS link.

    Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

    When I press the power button, the screen stays black and the lens goes in and out and then it dies. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

    First sounds like poor battery, but you've checked that of course. Other cause might be dirt between the lense's retracting parts which prevents the lense to fully extend.

    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.

    Power issues.

    you sdaid power surge on the laptop. Thus suggests that this may have affected the camrera. I would think a 'repair' if such is possible will be near the cost of replacement. Only Olympus can advise
