Fe 230 problem

Power turned on - lens will not engage. makes a winding
sound and stops. Was quoted $189 to fix - expensive
due to labor. Want to check before we buy new!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you. pam.jannece@gmail.com

My FE-230 is only 2 years old and will not turn on/off properly


This sounds remarkedly like a camera that has been dropped. Even by someone else! The odd noise it the can[mera trying to set the lens up and failing. The black screen is because the lens has not travelled the distance etc. multiple problems !
it needs a complete overhaul and may well be cheaper to ditch it and get a new camera

Olympus FE 230 Problem


I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.

Camera tuns on extends lens 3 x then turns off


Sounds to me like it is not getting enough power to do anything else but turn on and then off again. When you are downloading pics. your camera is actually drawing a small amount of power from your USB port to perform the necessary download. Try checking your batterie(s). This MAY be the problem. Hope this helps.

When I press the power button the lens just keeps going in and out. And when it does come on my pictures come out blurry. I have an Olympus FE 230.


I'm pretty sure you camera needs servicing. It sounds as though there is a problem with the focussing mechanism or motor, which would cause both of those symptoms. It's quite unlikely that you can fix this yourself. Hope it's still under guarantee!

I need help with my FE-230's focusing


in any case where the lens makes a grinding noise, something is in the channel and causing the lens to not extend all the way... you will need to send to a repair shop
