Question about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

1 Answer

FE-280 Wont Focus and Shust Off

FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

    I have exactly the same problem. The camera lens looks off-centre. This problem occured on its own. I haven't dropped or misued it.

FE-280 Lens Blurry Photos and no zoom turns off


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.

I have recently had the same problem. I sent my camera back to Olympus who very efficiently repaired it FOC and sent it back with an extended warranty. I gather this is a very common problem with this camera.

This is may be because of low batteries. Use alkaline batteries like duracell. Digital cameras support only extra duty batteries.
