Question about Digital Cameras
Hi, I have an Olympus FE-220 7.1MP and I recently had it on a tripod stand outside recording and the wind blew it off where it was sitting and fell about 2 feet onto the concrete. The camera orginally worked for about another 20 minutes, but when I finally turned it off and back on once inside, I noticed the lens barrel had gotten jammed, like ****-eyed ,actaully got most the lens pushed back in now, but Now the camera wont even come on all the way,the screen is blank ,the on and off light flashes,and when I try turning it on ,I can hear the lens motor trying to retract or extend, but never does.. Ive only had the camera about a week, purchased from ebay from an olympus auctions..How in thw world can I fix this jammed lens problem myself ,without spending a fortune on repiar?? I would have no problem taking it apart, but is there a better solutions?? Id really love some help here...thanks
Mines the same. Im getting it fixed today, But its been broken for about 6 months or something.
I have the reciept & everything in the little box, but I can't find the cord, the one that plugs into the camera & then the computer.
Would it matter if i give it back, would i be able to get a refund or new camera, it was bought under 12 months ago.

OK, DONT MOVE IT ANYyyy further!! I had the same issue and what you need it to contact the manufacturer and get it worked on ASAP!! What happens is when it's bonked onto something there is extremely delecate rotaters in there which stop working until someone puts it back into place. You can actually break it if you keep on forcing it through so stop trying to move it and get service asap since lense are extremely fragile an it doesnt take much to harm them.
Good luck and let me know how it goes. I'm also in the process of waiting for mine back from nikon, thankfully they had a3yr warranty on it..phew...you feel empty handed otherwise!!
