Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
The lens is bad, needs to be replaced. Maybe purchase camera on ebay with broken LCD but good lens. Replacement can be time extensive. Will need #00 or #000 phillips screwdriver and solder iron. Remove 6 exterior screws+2 inside battery door. Take off front panel, remove top screw holding back panel; remove back panel. Remove 2 screws(left side top & bottom)from LCD, unplug LCD by flipping hinge up on plastic connector, pull ribbon. Remove 6 screws along outer edge of electronic board + 2 screws behind lens. Unsolder 2 battery connectors near top right side(do not melt or burn ribbon in between them). Disconnect ribbons at top right and on left edge of board. Flip board over to the left side carefully as it's still connected by 4 thin wires. Remove 3 outer screws holding lens, remove lens. Replace with good lens. Assemble camera in reverse order.
Good luck and be CAREFUL!
