Question about Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera
Hi, My fe-140 is only 3 mths old (since i purchased new) i was taking pic's fine then sand got thrown at me....Didn't think any went into or near camera but a few mins after that i tried taking pics and the lens/zoom was making noises (abnormal) and not closing properly, and the display was blury. I re-charged batteries and "blew in the lens whislt holding it upside down" now the lens/zoom is fine but the display is still blury.....its fine when i look at menu options etc but when i look to take a pic is blury and can hardley see thru it. I have taken pics and uploaded them but the pics are blury too. Can anyone help? Thanks
my fe-140 is giving me a blur picture and the zooming lens makes a noise when it wants to come out and go in.
I was thinking is a software problem
And secondly the frames and title that used to be there when i bought it has suddenly disappeared how can i get it back?
can you help

It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.
