    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.

Iam trying to transfer my pictures from my FE230 to the computer. I installed the Olympus Master 2 software, yet when I plug in my camera it says i need to install the software and put in the disc. I put...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

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!

I cant figure out how to delete a picture on my camera


Have you read your manual? To view your pics, just press the right facing arrow button. To delete one, just press the button with the garbage can icon and follow the on-screen instructions.

I have an olympus x 500 camera it cant be switched off unless i take the battery out pls help


How long are you holding the power button for? It should be about 5 full slow seconds.

If it still is the same, then you could have a bad switch in the button or the firmware/software needs to be updated. Olympus will do any repairs for $50 if you ever decide to go that route.

Cant unlock a picture


If you want them to be permanently deleted you can format the memory card and this will clear the card of all data. If you just want these certain images deleted then you need to be in Playback mode - press the Menu button - go to Playback menu and press Ok - then choose the key option and turn it from ON to OFF. This will remove the lock and allow you to erase the selected image.

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.
