I have been using this cammera for more than 2 years. Suddenly, the cammera can't take any pictures. Here are the problems: 1.can't see any sight from the LCD screen(it's black), but it can show the menu and the selections. 2. The picutre that is been taken is also black and no matter how light the enviornment is.
It seems like the problem is on the lens, but the warrenty is over, and nowhere around the town can fix it.
Any suggestions ?

Re: Can't Take Pictures
My friend had the same problem with his kodak camera, the problem was that the aperture refuses the open. his solution was accidental, not sure if it will work on yours. he released the battery for a while, then after a day or two, he puts them back in, and the aperture opens up. try it

Unless you specified otherwise, your pictures should be in your C drive. The exact location varies depending on your operating system. I have Vista on my home computer and Microsoft 7 on my computer at the office, and with both of them I access my pictures by clicking on "desktop", selecting my user name, then selecting "pictures".
If you want to download the pictures and movies from the cammera you can unload the memory card from the cammera and insert it in a card reader and then to the usb and without a cord you can do this easily, but you will get the cord in a cammera shop. available in your locality.
plug the cable from pc to cammera , go to my pc and find extraible local an open the file , select the pictures and right click chosse copy and then go to the maybe my pictures in windows and right click again choisse paste , if when you plug the camera doesnot works install the cd camera driver or software
I have had my Olympus FE-210 for about 2 1/2 years just recently it started to display an all black screen after I took pictures and like many of you I would turn it off and back on just to get 1 picture out.
After testing it over and again I may have solved the problem:
First: remove all of the pictures and memory card from the camera
Second: go into the menu and find the reset button it will then display that the camera will return to default(factory setting)
after I did this I was able to take over 35 continuous pictures using every setting and scene setting the camera has
If this doesn't work I would suggest buying a new camera
Hopes this helps!!
Ok, these cammeras seem to have a lot of problems. My suggestion is to seriously look on ebay or ecost.com and buy a new cammera to fit your cammera housing but if you are dead set on repairing yours then i would say open up the cammera body and there is a card on the front you need to replace. I would try the large card on the front of the cammera next to the lense first by the vauge description you gave. this seems to control all the processing. you may want to try a couple of simple things first like using a different memory card or replacing the batter inside the cammera. I don't know how a bad battery would effect the cammera operation but it is possible it could cause problems. If this doesn't help then take the cammera appart. REMOVE THE BATTERIES! REMOVE THE MEMORY CARD! THERE IS A CAPACITOR INSIDE THAT WILL SHOCK YOU, DON'T TOUCH THE CIRUIT CARD ON THE FRONT WITH OUT DISCHARGING THIS CAPACITOR!!!!!!!!!!
remove the screw around the outside except for the battery compartment and the retainer screws holding in the screw tripod mount. They can stay in. next lift the bottom of the back cover up and hinge it slightly forward. not too far. then carefully pull the top of the back cover away being careful not to shear off the top plastic snap in pieces or hinge it forward and break them! do not pull it off quickly because there is a ribbon cable holding in the back. Back off the ribbon cable retainer clip and remove the ribbon cable from the socket. This should remove the backing. Next remove the newly exposed screws and remove the ribbon cabble for the shutter switch the same way. then pull off the front cover carefully. let it hang by the micophone wires and what not and you will see the board on the front next to the lense with the capacitor that shocked you... Didn't I tell you to watch out for that! now tell your wife you were shocked incase your heart stops... next discharge the capacitor the rest of the way with a piece of wire. it should be the solder joints with the big re and black wires next to the lense. Then un screw the board and unplug the wires for it. remove the board and look for serial numbers. Look the numbers up on the internet or on ebay and try to find someone who is selling it for cheap. This is nearly impossible to repair and must be replaced. if you cant find a replacement, call olympus and ask for a replacement board. they will then tell you they dont sell them so lie and tell them you are a repair shop or alternately ask to speak to their repair department or a certified repair shop. call them and ask if they have the part and usually they are more helpful. Ask how much it costs and then realize that it is almost the same ammount as buying a new cammera. get mad and look some more on ebay for the part. once you find it... order it, install it, test it, and email me back and let me know if it worked at Lucient_lost@msn.com Also be carefull not to shear off the switch on the botom for the memory card door. It is very fragile. if you do there is a fix for it already on this web sight. I wrote that one too. If you have any more trouble with it email me. if something is unclear, email me and I'll call you.
you can download the drivers of your cammera on the internet and install them... try in google or in the website of the cammera´s brand.. there you could find the drivers.. if you still have problems i could help you finding them.. cheers
Simple solution - take all the furniture pictures over. Took a picture, transferred it to the computer - went to eBay and was able to upload it onto the listing. Must have been a computer - software - glitch?? This never happened before and hopefully, it won't happen again.
are you using rechargable batterys or weak batterys. my fuji won't work unless I use a e^2 titanium batterys. they have lots of jam (3500's?). anyways when the picture or ccd goes to charge there isn't enough juice to fire and the cammera dies. or maybe there is junk on the connections and won't let enough volts through. rechargeables are bad becouse they don't have the volt output needed - 1.2v charged I beleive. the other batterys are expensive but they've been in my cammera for three months, or about 300 pictures.
hope that helps :)
