If the lens does not extend then it is possible that it has become jammed. Somtimes this can cause the camera to sense an error and shut itself down immediately after powering on. There are other explanations for the behavior, but if the lens does not move this is the most likely cause. If the lens does extend but then the camera shuts right back off it is possible that an inner component such as the focusing element is not functioning properly. When a camera comes on and then turns right back off it is generally due to some failure in its self-check at power on. Most of these failures come from the lens due to the fact that it contains most of the moving parts. Check with your manufacturer for warranty support or recalls. Failing that you can find an online repair provider who can fix your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Lens wont go in power button wont lite or come on and screen display nothing what is happen to my fe 210 olympus camera

I have the same camera! But my display is broken. :( But it still works. Try plugging in the external video cable to see if you can see the display on your TV.
Make sure the battery is fully charged. If the battery is no longer holding a charge, replace it or use the appropriate AC adapter to power the camera.
Also, remove the memory card if you are using one in you camera.
After you put a freshly charged battery in or plug in the AC adapter, press and hold the power button for at least 3 full seconds. The lens should extend fully. If it doesn't, press the playback [>] button on the back (this should make the lens retract). Then press the power button to shut the camera off. Press the power button again to power it back up and the lens should extend out as normal. You should be OK.
If not, let me know and I'll see what else I can dig up.
The last thing you can try is updating the Firmware. Below is a link to the Firmware update for this camera. Since I don't know what OS you're using, just pick your Operating System and follow the instructions on the pages that follow the link you chose.

The power button does not turn the camera on.

Your lens is probably damaged or stuck(such as beach sand particles caught in it) and needs to be cleaned out or replaced. Olympus repair shop can do this(olympus site online) or a camera shop. It is also possible that the batteries do not have enough power in them.

My camera will turn on but the shutter won't open!

tiny bits of juice, remember? maybe (or I am sure) this tiny became corrosive inside the camera. (orange juice is the no.1 in my corrosive juice list, water is the least). You need to open and clean it, or a pro fix is necessary.

OLYMPUS CAMEDIA C-860L

If you find an online user manual for the Olympus C-860L camera, please tell me (send an email to "dave at burtonsys dot com").  Thanks!

In the meantime, try this...

With the data cable unplugged,

Open the sliding front to turn the camera on.

Press and hold the green button on the back, light up the LCD display,

Press the menu button on the top edge of the camera (the button farthest from the shutter button).  That should bring a menu up on the screen.

Press the menu button repeatedly to switch between menu screens.  E.g., press it twice to get to the resolution screen (SHQ / HQ / SQ).

Press the "+" and "-" buttons to move between menu items.

Press the shutter button to select/OK the menu item you have selected.

I hope this helps!

Nothing appears on the LCD screen. What should I do?

The camera may have shut off automatically to save power. Press the POWER button to turn it back on. Also make sure the mode dial is turned completely to the desired mode. When the camera is connected to a computer, the LCD screen is disabled. When it is connected to a printer, press any button to display the print progress screen. After a moment, it disappears again.
