    When I turn on my camera it says either Power Off or Format, neither of which I want.

    When I turn the camera on, the screen says "card setup." Then I'm given the option of "format" or "power off." I'm not interested in either of these options.

    I get a "card error" message after the camera is turned on and the format process is attempted. A new card does not solve the problem. The camera was not dropped or damaged in any way prior to this message appearing. The only way to use the camera is by removing the card and limiting myself to the 10 or so photos available with the internal memory.

Call Olympus digital support or send into their repair dept for a free estimate. I used them both and they really were helpful. I got my camera back fastttt which was great cause I had a wedding. I sent mine to the NY repair service center. Look up Olympus repairs. Good luck!

Well, I had same issue and call the crapus support and they told me to format it. That is solution they recommend. it happen to me three times already had a camera less than 2 month. Well time to sell crapus and get me a real camera, I had Nikon and Canon almost 8 years and never had issue with memory card. I was stupid to take chance on crapus, by the way if you are not using none olympus brand memory card you are out of luck, they do not support.

Thanks

This is a malfunction of the camera. The same thing happened to mine. It gave me the option of power off or format card. I took my camera card to jewel osco and saved all my pictures onto a disc so i could format the card with out losing the pictures. I tried formatting the card and then the camera told me there was a card error. So I went out and paid $25 for a new olympus xd card, put it in the camera, pressed power and it said the same thing fo rthe brand new card that it had said for the card that actually had pictures on it. As far as I know there is no solution to this problem. You can still take pictures if you take your camera card out and use the internal memory. Olympus basically told me that I'd have to pay a **** load of money to have it fixed since the warranty is up.

    hi i had the same problem with my fe 210. my solution was very simple,get yourself a sheet of acetate and cut a small piece that will slide into the card slot with the card so it pushes the card towards the connectors.

Sounds as if this is a repair issue with the image processing chip inside the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service and discuss the repair process with them. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

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).
