Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.

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.

Morning. I have an Olymous FE-170 Digital Camera.

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.

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).

Lence problem and taking picture mode

Lens mechanism needs to be replaced. Probably has broken gears inside not allowing lens to extend completely or far enough to click sensor on. Expensive to repair by Olympus repair shop. Pretty tricky and delicate to repair on your own.

Blank Screen

Looks like CCD sensor problem. If this is the case your camera will work fine in playback mode but not in capture mode. Sensor has to be replaced.
