Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

When I switch the camera on the screen stays blank even though the lens comes out, it eventually goes off (with the lens still out after about 40 seconds). I can get the camera to work if I press the green "view" key and then, after the picture appears, press the red camera icon and it will go into auto shoot mode. Happens every time now. I can't take it in under warranty as it was a present and I don't have the receipt unfortunately.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Olympia fe-340 won't fully turn on


You have a bad lens, you should take into a camera repair shop. The only other thing that can be possible is the cable from the lens to the camera man board may have not be making proper contact.

V570 Dual Lens, will not switch to ordinary lens.


Hi, My V570 works fine on widescreen lens (the default on startup) but when I zoom up to switch to the other lens it goes to a dark blank screen and will take a similarly dark blank picture. I can hear the zoom activating as I click it so I think that is ok. I opened the camera

BLANK LCD SCREEN


The shutter in the lens is stuck closed. You need to take the camera to a shop where they will replace the lens assembly.
