Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera
I accidently dropped my camera yesterday and now I'm having problems. 1st off, the red light is on. 2nd, when I try moving the camera or attempt to take the picture, I hear the lens making noises, the camera beeps and then I see the flash icon as well as a green circle next to it, appear on the screen. It wont let me zoom in or out as well, but it still will let me take a picture. Its weird. Please help me! I've only had this camera for about 8 months and I love it! I dont wanna have to buy another one!! Thanks!
I like that name.
Dropping the camera is the the number 1 reason for digital camera failure due to the delicate lens assembly's.
Unfortunately it will probably cost you more to fix, than replace.
You can check this site for a repair shop that will give you a repair quote, but you won't like it, sorry.
Do not buy a used camera on eBay as it may have been dropped also.( new is OK) It happened to me
Try Pricewatch or Amazon, I have purchased a few from both sites and found some very good deals for my friends. You can also check the Olympus online store, They often have some awsome prices on clearance models.
The good news is that the prices on the Olympus FE series
has dropped ( no pun intended ) considerably, especially last years models, like yours.
I wish I could have been more helpfull.
Best regards Paul
