Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Grainy picture quality Olympus FE-230

When our Olympus FE-230 was new the photo quality was great - very crisp, clear, sharp photos. Now they're awful - I've tried changing resolution and it makes no difference. They also seem to be dark but I'm more concerned with the fact that I can't use any of the pictures I take - they are out of focus. Please help!! THanks!

    Same as previous. Have a FE-230 , was crisp clear, now ALL pics are blurry, checked all settings , it just seems not to focus, when I hold down the shutter button half way to focus, it will try to focus but the LCD is blurry and the pic comes out blurry in every category of picture taking , I think I have default all settings.

    Can the camera just go bad? It is only 2 yrs old and handled with care.

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

Can I change the color of pictures to black and white? If so, how?

The FE-230 doesn't have a black&white mode. However, just about any photo editing program will give you the capability of converting color pictures to black&white. Doing so on a computer also gives you much more control over things like brightness and color.

Hey my Olympus 230 digital camera seems to have deleted my photos, a message appeared on the camera "picture error", just wondering how I can get them back??

If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
All the download links listed in the article are through CNET, primarily to verify that these are malware free software, and to give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.

Olympus fe-190 camera, keep getting message lens error, restart camera, also monitor is grainy and fuzzy, unable to take crisp, clear pictures, and make strange sound...

The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor in the lens assembly. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $80.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Night Vision-esqe look in all pictures.

I have had the same problem with my Kodak Z812 IS. It is caused by a bad image sensor, a costly repair unless it is still under warranty. Does it happen mostly with macro photos?

Very poor quality pictures; grainy.

This is easily fixed - go into MENU and you will find a picture quality Q. This is designed to go from FINE - Medium - POOR in order to enable you to take more photos on you cameras memory. Install at least a 1gb memory stick into your camera and then choose HIGHEST QUALITY you will now be able to get plenty a photos at the highest quality possible gor the camera with an 8.2 megapixal those photos should be really nice.

Poor Resolution

e sure the quality setting is the highest - 7 megapixels. Otherwise, why buy a 7MP if you shoot at 3MP. The Canon 750 seems to have excellent picture quality where the Olympus has soft focusing (reviews at C-net).

Grainy Pictures

This camera with the ISO set to 100 ASA, the electronic zoom turned off, and with the mode on Automatic "A", should take very good pictures.

I would give the camera to the manufacture for service, and include some samples of what the results are. It would be recomended to do this while the camera is under warranty.
