Question about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera
I have the same problem, when i turn the camera on the lens makes a funny noise and the lens tries to come out 4-6 times however appears stuck (i.e. gears aren't working or something internally is stopping it) so it turns itself off.

spounds like theres a problem in the lens gearing system. if theres a jammed gear and you try to force it you WILL cause 3 times the damage to the mechanism.I fyou know how and only if you know how to dissassemble the front case as well as the lens cover then see if when yoiu loosen the drive motor if you can move the unit or lens assy. if you can then the gear system inside the motor its self is bad and the whole motor assy has to be replaced. if I were you I would contact number800-488-7669 and find out what they charge to repair the camera. Good Luck

I had what sounds like the same problem. The camera was dropped and the shutter was stuck open. Just kept showing error message.
As I felt I had nothing to lose I began tapping it on a soft book and the shutter started to appear. I then shut it just using the end of my finger. When I then turned the camera on again it opened and shut when turned off. It has worked fine ever since.
Seems a rather poor design.
Hope this helps. Very best regards Peat.
