Question about Olympus FE-220 Digital Camera
I am able to turn my camera on, and as it does so there are some strange noises, maybe like the lense is having difficulty moving in and out (though it seems to be moving without issue). Once on i have a blank,black screen. i can press the button to view my pictures and i have no issue with viewing pictures already on the memory card. when i press the take picture button, all i get are the strange noises and sometimes a red, sort of lighting bolt, arrow in the top right corner. I dont know whats wrong with my camera, let along fix it. PLEASE HELP!
My solution was to send it to Olympus for a warranty repair. If the camera is less than a year old, they'll fix it.

I was having the same problem. Most of the time a black display / pictures. When I did get it to take a picture, it was severely underexposed. I downloaded v1.1 of the firmware via the Olympus Master 2 software. So far, exposure is right and no more black screens. This was an intermittent problem that happened after like 6 months of pictures, so I severely doubt it was a manufacturing problem. It acted like a software bug to me, so the firmware solution does make sense to me and seems to work so far.

Also have the same problem, purchased in April 08 with very little use (less than 100 photos taken). Did anyone find the solution?

I am having same problem. View is black/blank, digital shutter appears to work but not photo taken. Returning camera to dealer as this appears to be an Olympus manufacturer error.
