Question about Olympus FE-270 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

Hi,
First check your warranty - you may be able to return it for repair under that - and yes it needs a repair. The metering system is now broken, The chances are you'll recieve a new one as it is more cost effective to them to do this. (keep the batteries)

When i take pictures they show with a pink color? i reset the camera to factory settings but still same pink pics advise?


This FE-340 Olympus is a great camera. Lots of features and usually great results
  • Indoor pictures with flash set on auto WB (white balance) should not be a problem
  • Indoor pictures without flash requires setting the WB to match the light source in the room (incandescent, florescent etc) Outdoor pictures WB on auto generally not a problem
For more help Include a photo with the metadata of the photo from the image data file

Help, my camera seems to work ok , but if i take a photo outside and then look at the photo that i have taken it is all white , it works well indoors ??


Hello,

One possibility that you have to check is the outdoor setting of your camera, it may have been set on a night mode that's why it's capturing too much light or it may be on an indoor mode that do not allow you to take outdoor pictures, just double check the setting or restore the default setting and it's best if you read the manual to help you set it up the way you desire.

Blury photos & blury screen (fe 270)


Can be cause from many things.. most common would be dirty and/or scratched lens. Another cause could be condensation inside the device itself. Look into the lens and see if it seems misty or coudy.. at an angle also to see if the should be smooth lens is matte (rough). If it looks like it's misty or steamy behind the lens then that means you need to let it 'dry out' in a warm dry place.. or.. take it to a photo shop to have it maintained.

Had the camera for 13 months. I suspect the light meter is busted. Photos indoors are OK, outdoors or in strong light are over exposed with horizontal lines through the photo. Quoted $160 to repair with...


Just put some part of a finger or two over the lens to cut down the light outdoors. Your shutter diaphrame is not working, but keep on using the camera, it might free up.

The answer is on page 28 of the manual here:

If you want to check the date on a monitor check the exif information.

Lost software disc FE-270


You can download Olympus software from
http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_downloads.asp?id=1317

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, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Blury screen


HI there your screen is ok but sorry to say that the lens does not focus because the lens guide pin is damaged or dislocated. So replaced the guide pin or repaired it. After that your camera will work properly. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Which program do I need to download photos from my olympus fe-270


If your camera uses a memory card, just purchase an inexpensive card reader and download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Double-click that to open your pictures.
