Question about Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera
When power is turned on, lens eye opens up but lens will only come out a tiny bit then retracts in again.
You could try resetting the camera to the default factory settings, and directions on how to do this are on page 20 of your camera manual. If this doesn't work then there is either something obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand), or damage to the lens mechanism. If it is something obstructing the movement of the lens you could try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is in there. If that doesn't fix the problem you could try putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up and holding in the shutter button, and while doing that turn the camera on. If none of this works I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!
