Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
If your screen works on playback etc.... and no signs of damage to the
screen.... then there are several possibilities I can think of!
This is going to sound stupid/insulting (but has happened before!!!!!)..... Make sure you have the Lens cap taken off if your camera has one!!!
OK!, Didn't think that was the problem, but had to ask!!!
Try taking a pic of a Bright light.... Do you get anything on the screen at all?..... try moving the camera about a bit!..... Still nothing?
Does your Camera still take Video if you have a video mode?.... Camera uses data differently for video (due to frame rates etc) and might suggest a card fault if this is the case!..... Have you tried a compatible card from a friend or a spare if you have one?
The last suggestion to make at this stage, is that the CCD chip in the camera may have failed!.... Unlikely, but possible!.... Has the camera been exposed to extreme temperatures, or maybe someone has been pointing it at the Sun for extensive periods?
One last thing to try..... If you can find a 'Reset' or 'Return to Defaults' type option in the Menu system... TRY IT!.... Nothing to Loose!
Repair would most likely be quite expensive unless still under Warranty ..... Consider replacing... but check with a few different repair stores first... you may be lucky and get a quick fix for a few Quid!
Hope this Helps!.... Good Luck!!
