Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

Blurry image and photos

The above camera which was only purchased in November last year is only showing a blurred image thru the view finder and no adjustments make any difference. Photos are same. It seems to be over focusing. Any solutions?

    Unfortunately I purchased mine in Hong Kong but I live in Australia. After doing some research I have discovered that yes it is a common problem. Olympus Aust didnt even have the courtesy to reply to my email but I have had some success with the company in Hong Kong. They at least have responded so I will wait and see what they offer to do, I forward them copies of blurry photos today. I wont buy an Olympus again but if the HK company come thru I will be happy to sing their praises on all camera sites.

    l will see what the company I bought it from do first. They sent me an email today telling me to try a few different things but nothing worked. They told me to get back to them if it didnt and they would then let me know what to do next. Still no reply from Olympus Aust. I hate companies like that but I will let everyone I know not to EVER buy an Olympus. Ive had a Sony digital for years, dropped it, sat on it and unintentionally abused it over the years and it still goes fine

I had the same issue. Guy at the store thought it was a problem with the ccd. This is a common problem with this camera. Mine was sent back to olympus yesterday for repair.

    As this appears to be a common problem with the model- this is a product problem and should be addressed by OLYMPUS no matter which location - it is an Olympus problem worlds wide
    I suggest therefore you contact Olympus Austrialia and get heavy with them on those lines and copy the letter to the Headquarters in Japan. All the relevant addresses are on the General Olypus Website.

Have a look at the lens, is there something stuck to it or dirty. If so needs cleaning. I'd try a damp cotton bud. Don't get water in the camera. Use several buds if required. Be Gentle.

Hi
I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

Vertical lines and distorted colour on display screen


Just as I got on line to this site I saw your problem being typed in and it's the exact same issue I am having with my Finepix 5000. I've owned it for all of 4 plus years with no problems and really decent photos. I'm getting a blurred image with green/magenta colors when I look through the viewfinder. When I take a photo, it shows the same. It wasn't dropped or even barely touched between the last good photo taken and this. Attached is an example of above description. I would appreciate any advise. See below.7ccd05c.jpg

Blurred image


The viewfinder image should look sharp & clear, as long as the camera is turned ON. If the camera is OFF, the viewfinder image will blur. At least this is how it works on my C2000z. If your viewfinder is always blurry, I would return the camera for exchange.
