Problem with my Olympus FE-230


When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

Grainy picture quality Olympus FE-230


check to see if your image stabilization is on (shaky hand). turn this feature off. also check the properties of your image to see if the iso is set to automatic. high iso, such as 800, will cause this in cameras

Olympus FE-230 Digital problem


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....

Blurry Pics


Hi taataa (cute name)
Does the lens seem to come all the way out, and does it move, in and out, when you turn the zoom control back and forth ? let me know and we'll go from there.
Regards, Paul

Blurry LCD possible lens prob?


Unfortunately not I had this issue on some cameras that I was working on the problem is your focus motor is not working correctly it has to be unstuck an the little suckers are hard has heck to replace you have to unsolder them and be really careful with that ribbon cable because I can't tell you how many of them I have ripped. it is just sometime easier to replace them or have it replaced should not be to much maybe 75 to 100 if you shop around.

Olympus FE-130 will NOT focus


It sounds like the focus motor in the lens is jammed. This could be caused by a knock or possibly sand. You could try tapping the camera (not too hard...). This might free up the motor the only other solution is to take it to a shop.
