Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

If it wont go in and the camera seems to be off, press a whole bunch of buttons in paticulary the play button so it can go to the pictures then turn it off!

Lens wont come out all way and cant take pics

Your lens is gone now, sell it on ebay as is, and buy another camera like yours for $20-30. Repairing such camera may involve just dust cleaning like very thin sand etc. or more work; anyway if you can find a guy who will do it for $10 then have it done. If not sell it on ebay for 10-20 and buy another one for 30. Keep the accessories!

Camera freezing up

did someone spill some pop or anything near the camera? If so, then you'll need to clean that out with rubbing alcohol

Whenever I'm filming with my olympus fe-170 camera, I don't get any sound on playback.What am I doing wrong?

Unfortunately nothing. The camera does not have the ability to play back any sound during movie recording as it does not have any way to capture audio. The camera was not designed with this type of functionality.

Olympus fe-170 camera

Hey carjoe,
I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in one of our Best Buy™ stores, and an agent can look at the camera and if need be send it out for service.

Sincerely,
Allan

Olympus FE-170 6.0 will not take pictures.

I had the same exact problem.The lens is not extending out fully or correctly, probably has broken or damaged gear or gears and needs to be replaced. Expensive repair done by Olympus. It is a very tricky and fragile repair on your own, requiring micro screwdrivers and soldering tool. I replaced my own lens but it was hard to find one.

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).

Blank screen

This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say.
