Okay laugh if you want but I accidentally put my Olympus FE-230 through the wash! And...it still worked! New pictures were a little washed out video worked fine and it's been getting progressively better during the last couple of months. Lately though it just tries to turn on..opening and closing etc... Then turning off. We've recharged the battery but it's still happening. We're going to get another camera but are wondering if this one might still come back to life. Might it just be the battery that's fried? I don't want to throw it away if it might be salvaged! Thanks for any advice you may give!jennifer

No. The camera is slowly corroding inside and is a write-off, sorry. It's amazing that you had any use at all after it's adventure!

When I put the power on from my olympus FE 230, then the lens goes in and out en then the camera turns out again. Can you help me? Jose


From your description the camera seems to cycle and then it shuts off? Olympus is notorious for that same symptom and with me it is just worn out. Your camera has a life expectancy and when you reach it even though it seems okay it really is saying that it is in it's last leg. Sorry for the bad news but a new purchase is warranted. Good Luck

Broken LCD on a digital camera


Yes you can! I have the same problem and found an Olympus
fe-230 LCD on ebay.com for only 39.99 with free shipping; beats buying a new camera.

Just search {Olympus fe-230 LCD} and compare the location of shipment (domestic or international) and the prices. I am expecting mine to arrive in the mail this Saturday.

By the way, it is very easy to replace once you receive it. Just use the small screwdriver to open the camera casing, remove the defective one, and replace with new (no soldering required).

Note: Be careful when connecting the rear camera light to the LDC.
