Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera
Same problem as listed by another "Turn on camera, makes grinding-type noise, then lens goes in and out several times... nothing focuses... when trying to zoom, camera turns itself off." When it's little in and out dance finishes the focusing screen is blurry. I tried to re-set the default setting and nothing helps.
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....
