I'm not exactly sure how to help you. But can you tell me:
1. How old is the camera?
2. How long have you used it?
3. When was the last time you used it?
4. Was it working then? w/ problems or w/out problems?
5. Who was the last one using it?
6. Did you drop it? Or get water or any liquid on it?

Camera wont turn on and lens wont go in and i just put new batteries in


Lens of the Camera doesn't retract:
---------------------------------------
Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure that the Battery is
fully charged and in recording mode.

1) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes,
then put them back in and turn the camera on.
2) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed
air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body
and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should
remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function
fine.s

3) Try forcing the camera lens:

Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and
take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If
you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the
problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if
the camera was dropped while the lens was extended.
Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try
powering the camera back on.

If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts
again, do the following.
(a) Turn the camera off.
(b) Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part
of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with
both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in
place.
(c) Power the camera on.

Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest
ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If
at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take
lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start
improving.

The zoom wont go back in. it is stuck up


Most likely the lens has been knocked out of alignment.There are some things you can try but beware.
If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is to take it to the nearest official repair shop and they should fix it for free.
If your camera is out of warranty, or if the manufacturer refuses to repair it for free (happens sometimes if for example they suspect the camera has not been treated properly) you can try the following methods to repair it yourself.
First, make sure your camera has fresh batteries and it is in recording mode.
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on.
Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function fine.
Another method is to tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface, for example, a desk. Sounds simple, but it works.

Need help with fixing my olympus fe-220 lens barrel


OK, DONT MOVE IT ANYyyy further!! I had the same issue and what you need it to contact the manufacturer and get it worked on ASAP!! What happens is when it's bonked onto something there is extremely delecate rotaters in there which stop working until someone puts it back into place. You can actually break it if you keep on forcing it through so stop trying to move it and get service asap since lense are extremely fragile an it doesnt take much to harm them.

Good luck and let me know how it goes. I'm also in the process of waiting for mine back from nikon, thankfully they had a3yr warranty on it..phew...you feel empty handed otherwise!!

Camera won't turn on


Plug it into the charger, then remove the battery. Disconnect is and then insert the battery/ That may reset it.

This also sometimes happens when a camera is dropped and the lens assembly is tweaked just a bit. Point it to your face and turn it on. Press on different places on the lens assembly while you toggle it off and on. If it comes out, your lens unit is out of line. You can try moving it side to side and even forcing it a little but it will probably never be just right.

Lens is most likely been knocked out of place, that would be the reason why you have out of focus and/or blurry photos. This would also be the reason why you can't retract or extend the lens.

Gently pushing on the lens MIGHT fix the camera, but I would only try as a last resort. Sometimes all that is wrong is the gears get out of place, and by gently pressing on the lens, it snaps the gears back in line, which will bring the lens into working order again.
