Question about Olympus FE-110 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fault Display Hello everyone, The problem with my camera is that display doesn't work. Everything else seems to be all right. In fact I can take pictures and upload them in my computer. The screen however is half black and half white and has some almost vertical lines that look like scratches. As a matter of fact the menu or photos are not displayed in the screen and I can't see what I'm shooting. I have never dropped it so I'm sure that the screen is not broken. What I suspect is that it got wet during a storm while it was in my bag. Any ideas how much the replacement of display will possibly cost? Olympus charges for the estimation of cost if I decide that I don't want to repair it. Is there any chance of replacing it on my own, provided that I found a spare part? Many thanks

Your chances are very slim- As you discovered Charges are made for inspection only -it is some ones time after all- and parts are not usually available. Best bet - Dont waste time and money in shipping, inspection and return. Cut your losses and get a new camera.

Hello.. my screen is black.. everything seems to work execpt the display


If the pictures can be seen by reviewing the card on your PC then it is possible that the LCD has failed. It can be failure of the backlight circuit, the flexible strip to the LCD or the LCD by itself.
Please take an estimate before you proceed to replace.

From the question, I'm going to assume we're dealing with some kind of digital camera despite the fact that you posted the question in a film camera thread.

It seems as if the computer operating system or whatever program you're using is displaying cached thumbnails. For example, if you have a file named DSC_0003.JPG, the computer is showing you the thumbnail from the last file named DSC_0003.JPG it's seen. If there's a "Refresh" item in the menu (possibly in the View menu), try it and see if everything refreshes.

If that's not the problem, could you specify the make and model camera, whether you're connecting the camera to the computer or putting the card into a card reader, the computer operating system and version, and what program you're using to view your pictures.

Olympus Stylus 1030 SW display not working after being in water


I just had a similar problem. I am not sure how it was fixed, but it works again - at least for now.

I had the camera on and was taking pictures when the screen went dark. Same as you describe, it takes pictures, flash works, LED, works, everything but the display. I plugged it into my computer with the USB adapter to see if I can salvage what is on the card and the diplay lights up. Tried several variations, but when the cable is connected to the computer (didn't have to be connected to the computer) the screen worked. Unplug, no display. I spun the settings button a couple of times. I accidentally took a couple of short videos and pictures that I deleted. I unplugged the camera and powered down again (tried that before). Power up and the screen is fine.

Again I have no idea what fixed it or why the display worked with the cable plugged in. It might have been related to the videos or some setting that I had slipped into (thought the display button never worked or changed anything).

Hopefully something in there helps or someone can explain what I did.

My sony dsc-w1 got very wet, caught in a rainstorm and did not have the case. I have left it dry out for 4 days and it turns on, lcd works, can read memory stick and display old pictures on the lcd. But...


Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.

As long as the pictures look fine it is something going on with the lcd display.

If it was taking pictures the same, it could be a special effect that is turned on or the CCD is bad. It sounds like the LCD display is bad. Some cameras can be repaired at a reasonable price with a new LCD display.

Have you replaced the batteries in the camera? That might take care of the problem.
