    Same problem here. I`ve tried to full reset, leave the camera without batteries, no effect. On video mode, the recording is fine, no lines on it and that makes me think that the problem is when the processor saves the picture on card or memory. In conclusion, I think it`s a firmware problem. Olympus staff did not respond yet to my e-mails...

    I have the exact same problem I am really about to give up on the camera. I have had the camera on the shelf for months now and still lines on images. I will try the batteries, then the camera resets. I will let you know if that helps.

I had the exact same problem after the camera was submerged in water. I let it dry out and waited almost 2 months. I was a day away from getting a new camera and it started working fine again after finally replaced the batteries as a last ditch attempt. That seems to have done the trick. The lines have been gone for 6 months now.

Olympus FE-270 has a grey LCD screen, with vertical lines.


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Unable to focus camera.


The common cause of lines across the picture is a stuck shutter. This will cause over exposed pictures, out of focus, with lines across them. If the problem is infact a stuck shutter it will require full disassembly to fix, which will be somewhere between $100 and $200 to fix depending on where you send it. An image sensor failure, or focus motor failure can also cause simular problems - but they also cost simular amounts to fix. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
