Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Olympus FE230 Hi, I happen to be on vacation in Italy and I dropped my olympus camera. I got it to turn on and actually take a picture,but it will freeze when it is open and then not respond. I have to wait a while then reinsert the battery for it to work. Is there any suggestions that you could give me? Thanks.

Better take your camera to near by service center to rectify the problem because as you dropped your camera internal chip might have slightly be damaged . As you reinsert the battery the internal chip is slightly charged after that it is not getting proper supply.

I Have olympus fe230 7.1 mp digicam it does not have a power even i bought a new battery pack.


You say you bought a new battery pack but have you actually checked it with a meter to make sure it has sufficient power?
I picked up an fe-230 used that had no batteries and bought a set of 2 batteries and a charger off ebay. According to the light on the charger the batteries are charged and ready. Only they aren't according to my meter. The el cheapo fleabay charger is no good.
So assume nothing and check your battery with a meter and go from there.

Iam trying to transfer my pictures from my FE230 to the computer. I installed the Olympus Master 2 software, yet when I plug in my camera it says i need to install the software and put in the disc. I put...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

How to replace the LCD screen for my olympus FE230.


Olympus is the best way to go to fix it. Or you might be able to find a repair person who does it. Call a Ritz Camera or Wolf Camera and see if they know of anyone who does repairs. You might get lucky and find someone.Unless you can find a Disassembly instruction online...i tried but had no luck..ill keep trying though!

Hi taataa (cute name)
Does the lens seem to come all the way out, and does it move, in and out, when you turn the zoom control back and forth ? let me know and we'll go from there.

Hey Giaaxxmarie,
The problem with the lens going in an out, and the blurry images is most likely caused by damage to the lens that happened when you dropped the camera, and after time the damage got progressively worse. The return/exchange period for cameras purchase at Best Buy™ stores would be 14 days and even if you were within this period since the camera has damage a Best Buy™ store would not be able to exchange the camera. You could have it looked at by an authorized service technician, but repairs on digital cameras are often not cost effective.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Card corruption that may have been caused by not safely removing camera before actually unplugging it.
May need to use some sort of media recovery to get pictures back:
