BLACK SCREEN, OLYMPUS FE210

HI, I HAVE A DIGITAL CAMERA, OLYMPUS FE 210, ONE DAY THE SCREEN JUST TURNED BLACK. I COULD STILL SEE THE LETTERS, BATTERY STATUS, ETC THAT APPEARS AT START UP BUT THE SCREEN ITSELF IS BLACK. IF I TAKE A PICTURE, THE CAMERA WOULD SHOOT AND IF I LOOK AT THE PICTURE, IT IS ALSO BLACK. BUT IF I LOOK AT OTHER PICTURES STORED IN THE CAMERA, I COULD SEE THEM NORMALLY. PLEASE HELP ... TNX.

    Same problem. One day the screen just didn't work. I thought it might be the batteries ie. not enough battery power. A pity, the camera took reasonable photos.

    Similar problem. On switching on, the following are displayed: Auto, HQ, xD, number of images left and the square brackets for focusing. However, the screen itself is black. It remains black on video mode or any of the scene modes.

    My Olympus FE210 was bought for me as a present whilst in the UK in Octover 07. I only took a couple of shots with it before returning to Oz. On arriving home and using it I was only able to take a couple more shots and then the screen went blank. I was able to reply the shots I'd taken earlier however the camera wasn't seeing anything after that time, hence the blank screen. If I take a shot with the screen blank and try to review it I have a blank scree, It'll only review shots taken when the screen is operating properly which is almost never. I have had some success after removing the batteries and replacing them and when that fails, removing the memory card and replacing it also. Reformatting the card has also caused it to work again although I'm not sure which one of these 3 methods if any is the actual fixer. I wasn't happy with the camera in comparison to my Canon IXUS and this only makes it worse! Very frustrating indeed. TM in Oz

    I have the same problem, the screen became black after just taking one picture. I searched on the internet and found many people have the same problem in asia, especially, in China.

    You have set it (by the menu) to Silent Mode. Just reset it "off", and you should be good to go again.

My olympus fe210 won't turn on even with new batteries


Hi there,

Make sure the battery connectors inside the camera are clean, not rusty or full of dust.
Try another new set of batteries.
Make sure you're pressing your "ON' switch hard enough, perhaps that's the problem.

If it still doesn't work,
I'm afraid it's a hardware problem, and you're going to have to send it in to get it serviced.

Hope I helped,
Tom

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 $47.85 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.

Screen messed up


LCD screens can be repaired by Olympus repair centers, prob free if under warranty quite expensive if not under warranty. Or you can purchase LCD screens on ebay between $45 and $65. Not hard to replace.

Drained batteries


Stop using this camera (Olympus FE-210), warn all your friends and relatives about this piece of junk, send the camera back to Olympus COD. Take the money you save from not buying more batteries for this camera and buy a decent camera from a reputable manufacturer.
