Question about Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens wont retract

This is a fe-170 changed the batteries and now the lens goes out, the cover opens, the screen lights but is dark, the led blinks orange and then it powers off, and the lens stays out. if i hit the power button again you can hear a little noise, and then it flashes the led and shuts off. if i take out the batteries and put them back in and apply a little pressure to the lens it will retract, the comes back out and the same thing, led flashes, shuts off, lens still out.

My Olympus fe just stopped working. I changed the batteries and that wasn't the problem. It will not turn on! The viewing window is dark, only the tiny light blinks.


you camera is turned on but the shutter seems not to open the reason you only see a dark screen. remove battery and press and hold power button for one min. reinsert battery and try again. if it still doesnt work it might require to be send to depot.

FE-170 - Lens extends & retracts 3 times when powered on.


appears to be power issue in the camera but you can try the lithium AA batteries that are located in the photo section of your stores... they are more powerful than regular AA batteries or else send to repair shop

Used FE-170 hardly powering on.


The lens need to be replaced or repaired. It is not fully extending. It may be that one or more of the plastic gears or plastic rods that hold the gears in place, are broken. I repaired two plastic rods in my lens, by drilling holes for new plastic rods,(I cut plastic rods from a plastic toilet bowl chain!!! It fit inside the gears perfectly), and super glue the rods in place. Replaced gears, put camera back together and BAM in worked! Nothing like a perfectly working refurbished rig job. Camera takes great pictures to this day.

Broken Lcd panel


Broken LCD screen is quite easy to replace on the FE-170 and FE-210. I have purchased cameras with bad lens but good LCDs on ebay pretty cheaply( compared to having Olympus repair camera).
