Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera problem I purchased an Olympus FE-230 camera last year in late July. The lends will not retract. How long is the warrenty on this camera? I just had the same problem, on my family vacation.  Grinding noise. Open and closes several times. After I try to focuses it shuts its self off. And it was a your old middle of may. It sounds like we bought a lemon. What can I do about it? I called and they want me to send it in for an evaluation.

When I put the power on from my olympus FE 230, then the lens goes in and out en then the camera turns out again. Can you help me? Jose


From your description the camera seems to cycle and then it shuts off? Olympus is notorious for that same symptom and with me it is just worn out. Your camera has a life expectancy and when you reach it even though it seems okay it really is saying that it is in it's last leg. Sorry for the bad news but a new purchase is warranted. Good Luck

One spot on lens


You could use a camera lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth. You could also get a product called the "lenspen". It's very handy and lasts for years.

The lens will not retract when switched off


That usually means the gears in the retract mechanism are bad or jammed. You can try to gently push the lens in but don;t force it. Unfortunetly this means a repair at the depot so unless it is covered under warrenty you might want to look at a new camera instead. That is cheaper than the the repair will be.

Zoom lense wont retract


The problem you are describing is a problem with something in the lens assembly of the camera. 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 $73.85 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.

FE-230 Failure to come on


Hi Gary
Is the camera under warranty and registered with Olympus? If not registered, make sure you do that online first. It also extends your warranty to 13 months. If no receipt, It was a gift.
You most likely have a bad lens assembly (was it dropped?) or microprocessor. Here's your link...

Olympus FE-230 Digital problem


Someone on here with the same problem mentioned that they shook the camera violently and it fixed the problem of it not focusing. I tried the same thing and actually gave it some light slaps on the tabletop. Well, now it works! I'm somewhat concerned that this fix won't last long.

Like many others' FE-230s, this camera began not focusing shortly after the one year warranty expired. I found my receipt and it turns out that I purchased the 2 year service plan at Best Buy and could get the camera replaced. But, now it works. Will it fail again after the 2 year plan expires? Jeez....
