Sounds like the Zoom mechanism is getting stuck (the system is trying to protect the mechanism by shutting off).

 

you need to send this off or take it to be fixed. these compact digital cameras seem to have problems like this all the time,

How do u turn off the flash on the olympus fe-170? im going to a clapton concert tonite and i need the flash to be set to off i tried everything and i cant turn it off....please help!...thanks!

Press Right-arrow (marked with the lightning bolt) repeatedly to select the flash mode. In this case, you want the lightning bolt inside a circle with a slash through it, indicating "no flash".

After the concert, don't forget to set it back to Auto, or the flash will never fire again :-)

Hi there.
You have to transfer the files from the camera/SD card to the computer, then you can delete them and use the camera again.

Olympus Camera FE-170 Problem in recording Voice

Recording moving images. Sound is not recorded

This is straight from your camera's user manual.

The camera does not have any way to provide sound with the movie clips. This is how the camera was designed by the manufacturer.

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
