Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

3 Answers

FE 230 will not turn on

The other day I attempted to power on my camera. It came on and said that the battery was too low. A few days later I tracked down the USB cable and went to charge it but now it will not turn on at all. I feel like it should come on when I plug it in to the computer no matter what. What could be the problem?

    Camera indicated battery low, but then the lens would not retract, and essentially the camera will not turn on.

    Charged the battery overnight and it still says "battery low." :|

Chech the battery contacts at the bottom of battery slot. Make sure that they are not bent off from center at all. Try to pry them up just a bit, with a small flat head screwdriver, to make sure they are making good contact with the battery.

Hello,

Have you tried checking the battery? As you mentioned before, the camera was bought 3 years ago. And doesn't specify if you left the batteries inside the camera. Please try replacing the battery, otherwise send the camera to the nearest Olympus for technical check up.

Thank you

This is a well known problem with these lens. They have very small focus gears and they get stuck quite easily by sand and dust. The lens unit has to be taken apart and the gears should be cleaned under a microscope. I repair these every day. I would suggest you contact a local camera repair center and let them clean it.

Olympus FE 230 Problem


I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.

Olympus FE-230 won't power up properly


It is repairable. First, check to see if it is still under warranty, (I'm pretty sure Olympus's warranty is one year) or if you purchased an additional coverage, even better. If this is the case, call it in. If not, it will not be worth the $ to repair. Unfortunately it cost as much or close to the price of a new camera to repair them and typically is not worth it. If you want to check around though, you can call some camera stores (Wolf Camera is a good choice if you have one locally). Hope this helps!

FE-230 Failure to come on


Hi Gary
Is the camera under warranty and registered with Olympus? If not registered, make sure you do that online first. It also extends your warranty to 13 months. If no receipt, It was a gift.
You most likely have a bad lens assembly (was it dropped?) or microprocessor. Here's your link...

Olympus Problem


If you mean that it is a new camera - then returnit to the seller for replacement as it seems to be an internal fault.
