    The zoom lens is out on the camera and I cannot power the camera on to get it back in. I have tried charging it in the wall and via computer.

You have a bad lens. Unless the camera is in warranty the cost of repairing the lens is higher than the value of your camera. The strange noise you hear is the lens motor trying to move the lens. One solution is to blow compressed air around the lens. Sometimes dust and dirt may jam the lens.

Help with the Olympus FE-280 8.0 megapixel, please!!


this is a tipically problem, of a pressure on the lens, if the lens go out. or if the camera are dopped. to resolve this problem alone you must have specifically knowledge.
the cost of the reparation is high. so if you want prove withe the exact model number, search on the ebay international seller the komlet lens with ccd for you camera. any american seller if you buy the lens, can give a guide to change the lens block. but this is not a symply job. if you make one error you loose the camera and the lens. the price of your lens block can go from 25 to 35 euro, if you can change it alone you have resolved with this money. ok.?? sorry for my bad english if you want help can you write me and i will help you

Does anyone have instructions for getting at the lens mechanism? I totally understand the risks of doing this myself, but the cost of getting a shop to do this is nearly as much as a new camera! I am sure...


I guess , lens got damaged; if that is the case you need to change the lens and its very complex process.You need it to get repaired from authorized shop.

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.

Lens error and blurry photos


If your images are blurry and the lens wont move smoothly it is very probable that some kind of force on the lens has damaged a gear, barrel or even dislodged an element internally. When the lens detects an obstruction in its movement the camera reports accordingly,"lens error". You should have the camera checked by a service centre, it will most likely need the lens replaced as they are not serviceable.
