I have recently had the same problem. I sent my camera back to Olympus who very efficiently repaired it FOC and sent it back with an extended warranty. I gather this is a very common problem with this camera.

Help with the Olympus FE-280 8.0 megapixel, please!!


this is a tipically problem, of a pressure on the lens, if the lens go out. or if the camera are dopped. to resolve this problem alone you must have specifically knowledge.
the cost of the reparation is high. so if you want prove withe the exact model number, search on the ebay international seller the komlet lens with ccd for you camera. any american seller if you buy the lens, can give a guide to change the lens block. but this is not a symply job. if you make one error you loose the camera and the lens. the price of your lens block can go from 25 to 35 euro, if you can change it alone you have resolved with this money. ok.?? sorry for my bad english if you want help can you write me and i will help you

OLympus FE-280


OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!

Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.

Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

Please rate our help to keep the service online ++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Same exact thing......My mom thinks it needs a new battery.


Hi!
It sounds like your camera lens focus is stuck - could be sand or something in the focus gears - that's the weak spot of these lens. If you can't open the lens and check your lens focus gears yourself, you should contact your local Olympus service center or other camera service center. You can contact me too at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I can give you a good price.

Hope this helps!

FE-280 Lens Blurry Photos and no zoom turns off


You have a bad lens. Unless the camera is in warranty the cost of repairing the lens is higher than the value of your camera. The strange noise you hear is the lens motor trying to move the lens. One solution is to blow compressed air around the lens. Sometimes dust and dirt may jam the lens.
