Question about Digital Cameras

I have an Olympus FE-130. When I try to turn the camera on, in camera mode, the lens opens and closes quickly, and then shuts off. I am looking to have it repaired. I would like to know the cost of the repair of how to get it repaired. Thank you.

Hey jen3,
There are many places to get the camera repaired. You could look in your local yellow pages under camera repair, or if there is a Best Buy™ store in your local area you could bring it to the Geek Squad® precinct in the store and they will send it out for service. There are also multiple camera repair centers on the internet that you could mail it to. As far as how much it would cost like any repair it really does depend on what's wrong with the camera which can't be diagnosed correctly until an authorized service technician is actually looking at it.

Sincerely,
Allan

My olympus camera wont take pictures


It sounds as if the lens mechanism is damaged, and when it tries to protract it fails and shuts down.

When you just switch to camera mode, I would try helping the lens come out to get it loose.

If all fails, send in it to be serviced, but expect to pay no less than $80 to get this problem fixed.


Hope I helped,
Tom

Hey dramaqueen79,
It sounds like you have internal damage to the camera. I would have it looked at be an authorized service center. If you are fine with the performance of the camera and all you want to do is be able to upload your images you could purchase a card reader(for an xd memory card) that connects to a usb port, and upload your images directly to your computer with the card reader.

Sincerely,
Allan

Olympus FE-130 will NOT focus


It sounds like the focus motor in the lens is jammed. This could be caused by a knock or possibly sand. You could try tapping the camera (not too hard...). This might free up the motor the only other solution is to take it to a shop.
