    Same problem here. I press the power button and the lens extend but the screen remains black and an orange light comes on then the camera shuts off. I have rplaced batteries but nothing changed. I can review pictures on the camera just can't take new ones.

    When powered on, lens comes out, orange light flashes, camera powers off lens stays out. Camera will view pictures already taken. Tried new batteries.

Turn the base lens counter clock wise when the lens is protruding from the camera ... the lens is jammed = your problem

Olympus Diital Camera FE 210 Blank screen

My name is Jaeyeal Jeung. I got an experience for FE 220. There are two flat cables inside of the camera. First one is for lens related and send one is for LCD related. If you can open, you need to check the connection of the cables, each cable is hooked to connector that it has flip cover. Try to open and follow what I said. Good luck.
