    I couldn't delete any photos ( it did not tell me the memory card was full) and the next time I turned the FE-230 on a 'Card Setup' screen came on. This was not the usual 'Format' screen and it gave me only 2 options, Format & Power off. I tried the card in my wife's Olympus Camera and got the same screen. I tried a different memory card in the FE-230 and this worked Ok for taking and deleting photos. I formatted the different card then tried the troublesome card again and I got the same 'Format' screen. I also tried to download the photos on the card and Camedia told me the camera wasn't ready so I couldn't.

Card corruption that may have been caused by not safely removing camera before actually unplugging it.
May need to use some sort of media recovery to get pictures back:

I Have olympus fe230 7.1 mp digicam it does not have a power even i bought a new battery pack.

You say you bought a new battery pack but have you actually checked it with a meter to make sure it has sufficient power?
I picked up an fe-230 used that had no batteries and bought a set of 2 batteries and a charger off ebay. According to the light on the charger the batteries are charged and ready. Only they aren't according to my meter. The el cheapo fleabay charger is no good.
So assume nothing and check your battery with a meter and go from there.

How to replace the LCD screen for my olympus FE230.

Olympus is the best way to go to fix it. Or you might be able to find a repair person who does it. Call a Ritz Camera or Wolf Camera and see if they know of anyone who does repairs. You might get lucky and find someone.Unless you can find a Disassembly instruction online...i tried but had no luck..ill keep trying though!

Better take your camera to near by service center to rectify the problem because as you dropped your camera internal chip might have slightly be damaged . As you reinsert the battery the internal chip is slightly charged after that it is not getting proper supply.
