Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

No sound when video taping


Hello beauknows,
I am a bit confused, is your digital camera fe 310 or fe 4000? If it is fe 310, it DOES have speakers. Go to setup, sound settings and make sure the volume is ON.

Olympus FE-370 - 8.0 How do I set the 10 second delay on this camera so that I may include myself in the photo?


Did you try the timer button? It's the bottom button on the 4 button ring with OK / FUNC button in the middle. There is a small clock drawn on it.

How do I delete all the photos off of my olympus FE-310 (formating the card in set up didn't work)


Formatting in the camera should have worked. Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. With most cameras, when you bring up a picture and press the delete button, it gives you the option to delete that one picture or all of them. Have you tried that?
