Morning. I have an Olymous FE-170 Digital Camera. The problem started when I turned the camera on and only saw a white screen, the screen slowly cleared but the picture was reversed. Now the white screen does not clear at all. Thanks Linnet

Sounds as if this may be a repair issue with the camera. You may want to call Olympus customer service to discuss their repair policy. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Unisntall the software that came with the camera and reinstall them. If the computer asks for drivers, insert the cd that came along the camera and install the drivers. Alternately, you can use your laptop's card reader port to transfer pictures. Just take out the memory card from the cam and put it in the card reader slot. Have any questions, write back.
The reset is in the setup menu but since you can't turn it on, that's useless. Are you sure the battery is inserted correctly? Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.
The FE-170 is not equipt with microphone for sound with video. Sorry. The only fix is to buy a different camera.Some with sound are:Olympus FE-190, FE-230, most Stylus brands and newer FE model cameras.
