Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera
When i turn on my camera The screen shows for about 2 seconds, and then turns off. I try to turn it off by taking out the battery but the lens stays out and doesn't shut off. I did turn off once but i tried to work with it again and it never turned back off. I tried recharging the battery but that didn't work either.
Did you push in the battery all the way so it clicks? I forgot to do that at first. =\

Lens mechanism is shot Check customer support at Oly., but a repair is not likely economically

Tips for a great answer:
Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
