Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
Hi there, my camera (Olympus FE-170 6.0) will not take pictures. It turns on when you press the power button but gives me a black screen. It does allow me to view photos taken when you press the button with the little green arrow (the one that allows you to view pictures taken.) It also turns on when you press this same button and in order to retract the lense you have to use this button and not the power button. Can you please help me with this problem?
I had the same exact problem.The lens is not extending out fully or correctly, probably has broken or damaged gear or gears and needs to be replaced. Expensive repair done by Olympus. It is a very tricky and fragile repair on your own, requiring micro screwdrivers and soldering tool. I replaced my own lens but it was hard to find one.
