Coloured lines on picture screen

Olympus FE-120 less than 2 yrs old, hardly used. When switched on to take a picture I get a series of coloured (pink, purple etc.) vertical lines on the LCD screen and when I take a picture, the camera photographs the lines. When viewing previous images they are fine. Any suggestions anyone???

  • Indoor pictures with flash set on auto WB (white balance) should not be a problem
  • Indoor pictures without flash requires setting the WB to match the light source in the room (incandescent, florescent etc) Outdoor pictures WB on auto generally not a problem

Camera wont back up to memory card

Hi there.
Check to make sure the write protection is turned off on the memory card itself, the write protection tab is located on the left hand side of the card and is usually coloured white.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Olympus FE 150 digital camera shuts on and off repeatedly

There could be a problem with the battery , the charger or the camera itself. I would recommend you send them to an Olympus service center location for evaluation.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $93.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Multic coloured screen

12b809f.jpgHere is what my pics look like. It was a progressive defect, some good pics, then these in between. Now they are all bad. I found this info below... even though the SP350 is not listed, I am going to call Olympus tomorrow. Good luck!

The camera takes blank images, or the image is distorted
  • There are a number of digital cameras models sold by Canon, Fuji, Konica-Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Ricoh, and Sony (and possibly others) which use CCDs (image sensors) manufactured by Sony which have had a high rate of failure. Details can be found at
  • Most manufacturers will replace defective CCDs affected by this problem at no charge, regardless of warranty status. This service advisory (technically, it is not a "recall", since recalls are related to safety issues) only applies to certain models and certain serial number ranges.
  • If your camera exhibits the symptoms listed above, we recommend following the link or calling Olympus Customer Service at 800-622-6372. We do not replace the CCDs in Camedia or Digital Stylus models.
