Question about Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera

1 Answer

BLACK SCREEN; NOT ABLE TO TAKE PICTURES

So is this something we are going to have to deal with -- to me Olympus was always the top of the line in cameras. My Olympus 330 infinity zoom is still working after 20 years. This thing that I have now the FE-210 -- barely lasted 6 months before it started falling apart. I am very disappointed in this product. It was money wasted, and I think I will have to advise my friends and colleagues not to purchase any of the newly minted Olympus cameras in the future. I expect higher standards with higher technology -- but did not get it. Wish I could get my money back on this lemon of a camera.

    When I turn my camera on, there is a black screen and it makes a weird beeping noise, then turns off. The batteries and memory card are fine, because when I view my pictures I can see them perfectly. Does anyone have a solution for this that doesn't require a whole lot of money? I dont want to send it into Olympus unless there is no other solution.

    I have the same problem and my camera is not even 6 months old. I replaced my AA batteries with rechargeables, but that didn't help. When the camera does work, the auto-focus doesn't work properly. Daytime I get pics that are too bright and nighttime too dark.

My Olympus Stylus 760 can only view a black screen


Hi there:
Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My screen stays black, even though I can see old pictures, can record video (only the audio works) and upload my photos.


Could be a problem with the LCD screen viewer or CCD Image sensor go to bad. In both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Olympus service. I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Good luck.

Lines through all pictures


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $89 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

If you find an online user manual for the Olympus C-860L camera, please tell me (send an email to "dave at burtonsys dot com").  Thanks!

In the meantime, try this...

With the data cable unplugged,

Open the sliding front to turn the camera on.

Press and hold the green button on the back, light up the LCD display,

Press the menu button on the top edge of the camera (the button farthest from the shutter button).  That should bring a menu up on the screen.

Press the menu button repeatedly to switch between menu screens.  E.g., press it twice to get to the resolution screen (SHQ / HQ / SQ).

Press the "+" and "-" buttons to move between menu items.

Press the shutter button to select/OK the menu item you have selected.

I hope this helps!
