Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera
Lens wil not retract
Bad Lens assembly, cost more to fix than replace.
Check the Olympus store for clearance items,
Pricewatch is a good one also.
Never buy a used one online, new is ok, because dropping them is the #1 reason for the lens assembly failure.
I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpfull.
Best regards, Paul

The motor mechanism has failed electrically or through damage- taking a knock. Either way nothing for you to do- unless you are a watch maker or good with fine tools. A repair will cost much as a new camera. Try both -a self repair and a new camera. You may get lucky and have two cameras

Mine has done this twice, both times requiring it to be sent off for repair, both covered under warranty though luckily. Both came back saying they replaced the shutter assembly. Camera is fixing to go back out for a third time (not shutter related). I've lost all confidence in canon with this one.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
