    I ahve the same problem with my FE-190, the lens tries to stabilize while the camera is turned on but never finished and turns off.

    I took apart and didn't find anything broken or missing so I closed and try again no diferences.

    I have a similar problem with my FE-190, but he lens is stuck in. When the camera is switched on it makes a wiring and clicking noise but nothing happens.



    My camera is well out of warranty, so I thought I'd take it apart to see if I can see anything phyically wrong with it. Could someone please tell me how to achieve this? I have taken the back of the camera off (4 screws on the left side, 2 on the right and 3 on the bottom). But I can't work out how to remove the LCD display and board to get to the barrel mechanism.



    Please help...

If the internal lens barrel gets knocked out of alignment it will cause that condition. If the camera senses that the lens is not in the proper position or not moving, it will turn back off rather than cause more damage. Pushing on the lens barrel to try to fix it will usually cause more problems than it already has. It has to be disassembled to be repaired.

at this point you may also want to check on your warranty status.

Stuck lense on olympus FE-350


If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.

1. Check the batteries
(obvious I know).
2. The
camera has been dropped or knocked.
3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.

Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average
home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"


There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

MY FE 140 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


Lens will probabaly need to be replaced. Used replacement lenses can usually be found on ebay. Mechanically inclined person can replace them quite easily. Olympus repair shops are usually quite expensive and it's almost better to get new camera rather than have them repair it.
