    we dropped our FE-190 Olympus Digital camera in the sand. It worked fine but then would not charge well. We bought a new battery and all worked well. Now it does not focus the pictures. It is ALWAYS blurred, no matter where the zoom is or how we try to focus, it stays blurred.

    I think i got sand in my camera because i had it in my bag on the beach. i didnt take it out of the bag but when i got home n turned it on the lense went in and out a bunch of times and made a weird beeping sound when the lense was all the way out. when i finally did get it on it was super blury and i couldnt get a clear picture. it only turned on a few times the other times it would do the weird noise n turn off.

If the picture turns all white, then you might have a problem with the screen.
-or your're just aiming it at a bright object. (try covering the lens with your hand- dont actually touch it, just block out the light and if the screen goes dark then its still working)

if some sand or grit got inside your camera, then you have a serious problem, as sand is very abrasive,and could damage the internal mechnisims.

you should seek professional help on getting the inside cleaned out.

Camera won't turn on

My daughter FE-190 just had the same problem. Make sure the little red tab is locked over the battery. Hers now works properly. I think it is possible with this camera to put in a battery and it NOT have good contact.

Hope that helps Brian
