You either have a faulty camera or the battery has died (they don't last forever).

Unfortunately, diagnosing faults on dead electronics is very difficult without specialist equipment and skills. All you can do at this stage is to eliminate the possibility of battery failure by buying or borrowing a replacement. Don't put your battery in another camera though as some possible battery faults can damage the camera.

Your camera may be less than two years old, if so it may be covered by Nikon's 2 year warranty. If this applies your best option is to visit the Nikon website for your country and follow the links to find out about free repairs under warranty. Although the camera may have a 2 year warranty, the battery is regarded as being a consumable item so is not usually covered but at least you can find out which item is faulty for just the shipping costs instead of investing in a pricey new battery.

Lens wont go in power button wont lite or come on and screen display nothing what is happen to my fe 210 olympus camera


I have the same camera! But my display is broken. :( But it still works. Try plugging in the external video cable to see if you can see the display on your TV.
Make sure the battery is fully charged. If the battery is no longer holding a charge, replace it or use the appropriate AC adapter to power the camera.
Also, remove the memory card if you are using one in you camera.
After you put a freshly charged battery in or plug in the AC adapter, press and hold the power button for at least 3 full seconds. The lens should extend fully. If it doesn't, press the playback [>] button on the back (this should make the lens retract). Then press the power button to shut the camera off. Press the power button again to power it back up and the lens should extend out as normal. You should be OK.
If not, let me know and I'll see what else I can dig up.
The last thing you can try is updating the Firmware. Below is a link to the Firmware update for this camera. Since I don't know what OS you're using, just pick your Operating System and follow the instructions on the pages that follow the link you chose.

Camera stuck with lens out & wont turn on =/


This happens with many cameras, whatever you do, do not force the lens back. You will see this as a suggestion on some blogs. Doing it might further damage the camera lens and other parts.
Here is a repair place that is very reliable: http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/Olympus_FE_FE-370
WHen sending it in make sure you cushion it so it doesn't get worse when shipping.

The shutter button does not work, the camera is on but it wont take the picture


this could be caused either by no memory card or a lens error , remove the power , press the lens release button , unscrew the lens , clean the lens contacts with a little bit of alcohol on a lens cloth , do not touch the contacts inside the camera , remount after it is dry and insert power and try agian . if this doesnt't work go see a repair guy

Lens wont retract


Hi,

Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.

Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).


Thank you!

My nikon d70 wont focus at all


  • Make sure both lens and body are set for autofocus. There are two switches near each other with "AF" and "M" settings.
  • Check the camera's focusing settings, or do a factory reset (from menu) to 'start over'. Usually helps to have AF-Assist on.
  • Try setting the AE/AF-lock button (upper rear, near right thumb when holding camera) to turn on AF. The camera may respond better to this than half-pressing the shutter release.
  • Make sure the lens is fully attached to the camera. You shouldn't be able to rotate the lens without depressing the lens release button, and you should be able see a tight seal between the two.

It wont turn on, And the zoom is extended.


I had exactly the same problem. Lens stayed open, when powered on you get three beeps and nothing. I found when I pulled the lens out a little harder it gave a little click. When I powered on it worked perfectly.
