Question about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera
As soon as i put my camera its lens goes out and comes in few time, it also make a buzzing noise and then switches off. At times it stays out but the picture comes blurred and zoom operation results in a buzzing sound and the camera doesn't operate.
I am in India while the camera was purchased in Dubai on 11 Jan 2008 and its warranty is for one year. Will I be in a position to get it repaired in India.
I just fixed my own camera (for who knows long) by literally "cavemaning" it on the floor! After reading Hook76311's suggestion of slightly twisting the lens while it comes out, I tried to no avail. Then I tried to tap it on the floor which turned into banging it. The only reason I did this is because I had already replaced it with a new camera and was going to toss it anyway! Although I don't really recomend this method, it did work for me in this case. I have taken a few pictures with it now and it seems to work just fine. If you are out of options and are going to throw it away, it might work for you too! Good luck!

This is a promblem within the lense, apperantly while it is on the way out there is a microswitch/click that the lens as to contact to let the camera "know" that the lens is out. No word on the fix, if your camera is under manufactor warrenty OLYMPUS will cover the cost and the fix. I found that if i slightly twist the lens on the inital power up i can get it to click into position and use it.
