Question about Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera
Camera not working. Buttons not working. screen displays when linked to computer, card cover open warning displays when linked. Unlinked nothing displays. Will not turn on or off. only way to turn off by removing battery.
For sure your buttons are contaminated. About all one can try in this case is to take the camera apart and spray some electrical contact cleaner to try to clean it up as best you can. There are usually 5 or 6 very small phillip's head screws that hold the camera body together, but you will have to be careful taking it apart since the back of the camera is connected to the main board by ribbon connector(s). You can carefully lift the tabs on them, and disconnect them, then inspect the camera for areas that were possibly effected by the spill. Spray them good with the cleaner, and allow them to totally dry, before turning the camera back on. You can reconnect the ribbon cables to test the camera before putting it back together, and, with any luck, get it functional again. Oftentimes the damage is too severe to be remedied, even with a good cleaning, but there is always a chance. If you need to know more about the procedures of disassembling the camera, there are many videos on YouTube that show how, just looks for videos on "Digital Camera Repair". Sometimes you can get lucky and find your make and model, but they're all basically the same, with minor variations. Good luck, hope this helps, and hope you get it back into working condition!
