Olympus FE-210 Problem

I have been using my FE-210 since May and it has worked fine. Now when I turn it on the zoom goes out but the LCD screen is black, it just clicks and will not take a picture. I can review my pictures, what should I do?

    I'm having a similar problem. I turn the camera on and can 1 picture, then the display goes blank. I can take another picture but the display then shows the picture of the blank screen. I've tried re-setting about 3 times and no luck... Any ideas?

My screen is completely white with blue lines.

You might have bumped the LCD screen, they break really easily. You can replace it yourself by ordering one on Ebay for about $25.00. A repair shop quoted me $125, but I would buy a new one in that case. It's not hard to change one, but you have to be careful, and make sure you discharge the flash capacitor. If you google the problem mentioning the make, model no., and add "changing LCD screen" you will find a lot of articles on it. Good luck, and maybe get a hard case for your next camera.

Hey dramaqueen79,
It sounds like you have internal damage to the camera. I would have it looked at be an authorized service center. If you are fine with the performance of the camera and all you want to do is be able to upload your images you could purchase a card reader(for an xd memory card) that connects to a usb port, and upload your images directly to your computer with the card reader.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.

Broken Lcd panel

Broken LCD screen is quite easy to replace on the FE-170 and FE-210. I have purchased cameras with bad lens but good LCDs on ebay pretty cheaply( compared to having Olympus repair camera).

bulletpoint_blue.gifPantalla LCD de 6,4 cm / 2,5”

La estilizada y ligeramente sinuosa Olympus FE-210 reúne buen precio, rendimiento y facilidad de uso. Sus 7,1 megapíxeles y zoom 3x garantizan un excelente rendimiento. Los resultados se pueden ver en la gran pantalla LCD de 6,4 cm. La calidad de imagen está muy por delante de dispositivos como teléfonos móviles – de manera que se pueden guardar las imágenes con toda seguridad e imprimirlas en gran formato.
