Question about Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Over exposed When taking photos indoors with flash the pic is fine, but in bright light e.g. outdoors the picture is horribly irretrievably over-exposed, almost completely white. Camera worked fine until just recently. Every other function works perfectly.

    I'm having the same exact problem, it seems like the shutter is staying open too long. Steady indoor pictures still look ok, but motion/outdoor pics are unrecognizable. Everything else works fine, even videos.

    Everything on every setting is totally overexposed when outdoors. I did a hard reset of the gizmo, and the problem went away for about ten shots, then came back worse than ever.

I just fixed mine. Part of the shutter got stuck, so it was taking in too much light from outside.

You can see if this is the same problem by looking in your lens and zooming in--see if anything looks weird; you should just see a reddish circle in the center of the lens.

I had to take the silver piece off that says "Olympus lens" and whatnot, then turn the camera on and use something ( in my case, a twist-tie) to push the stuck part of the shutter up, through an opening under the removed silver piece. My pictures now look fine as they did before.

To remove the silver piece, just turn it with your fingers counter-clockwise with the camera off.

Hope this helped a little. My warranty is gone anyway so I had nothing to lose. I'd send it back if you still can before doing this.

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

When taking pictures outside the camera over exposes. Could i have pressed a button that would cause this to happen? when taking pictures indoors the camera takes awsome photos still, but when we go...


Sounds like you set either the aperture to a large small number (large aperture) or the shutter speed to a long value. If this is the case, it should be that in AUTO mode, things work fine, but one of C, M, Av or Tv (custom, manual, aperture priority, shutter priority) modes, the aperture or time are set to something that is good for indoors, but outdoors (where the light is brighter) too much light comes in.

It could also be that the ISO ("film" speed) is set too high for bright light. Again, in AUTO mode, the camera takes care of this setting.

Try each of the shooting modes and see which ones work. If Av is the one that is over-exposed, try making the aperture smaller. If Tv, make the shutter time shorter. If M, make both Aperture smaller and shutter time shorter.

Use of macro digital feature


hi,let me just inform u that the macro mode is only for outdoors.So on the side of the camera u will find a sliding switch.Just slide it to the opposite direction to turn off the macro mode.Since u wanted to take pictures of jewelry pieces,turn on the flash if u have one and then take a closeup shot with good lighting conditions.If its too bright then use only the flash,if u r not satisfied with the quality then use only lights and then take a pic.Still face any prob plz get back to me.

White lines when you take photos in light, but perfect in the dark


The problem lies in you camera's CCD unit which is located on the back of the lens held on be 3 small screws it could also be a setting in the camera's menu try going into the menu and reseting the camera to default it works some times if that does not work than you need the ccd replaced pretty easy fix I fixed 1 with the same problem about two weeks ago for someone it happens I hope this helps you out.

Why do some of my pictures come out dark or with shadows?


Your Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does not have a flash. If pictures are coming out dark, it's because there wasn't enough light in the surroundings when the picture was taken. Remember, it's important to take photos in brightly lit surroundings. When taking pictures indoors, make sure that the room has bright lighting. For best results, take pictures during daylight hours with a combination of indoor and outdoor light, preferably near a window.
