Question about Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera
The camera got dropped, and now i can only see what seems to be a sliver of whatever we're looking at throught it. From the front, looking down into the lens, it appears as if something black has fallen over the lens, INSIDE not the actual shutter on the outside..Is it repairable?
I have an FE-140 open right now and i can assume it to be one of 2 things. If it was dropped it is possible that the LCD has cracked therefore you will only see above or below the crack. It s a separate part and can be replaced. The 2nd is that possibly the mylar strip that connects the LCD to the circuit board has come loose with the impact. This is quite simple to reinsert yourself, however just be careful when opening the camera. remove the 4 side screws and the 2 on the bottom(on rear casing) then gently use something thin like a nail file or sharp fingernail to breach the 2 halves and they should come apart. Never force!! Once open there are 3 more screws around the function selector that will need removing, and 2 under the corners of the LCD.The LCD will lift out to access these screws. This will give you access to the mylar strip. Good Luck,
