    I purchased new FE-230 this year and I keep it in a case. The battery is fully charged and when turned on the lense opens and closes several times then turns off. I have manually held the lense open and then turn camera off and back on. It will sometimes operate correctly for several days then do the same thing happens again.

If your battery is fully charged, then it would need to go to repair

SOURCE: Olympus X-920 camera lens fails

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Camera mode takes blank photos


Is the lens cover open? (Make sure battery is fully charged) go into the menu and reset the camera make sure it's switched to auto and try again. I assume you have looked at the photos on a monitor? If they are absolutely black with no noise it's the processor.

My camera comes on and then the lens retract and go back into the camera. The camera never fully comes on. The batteries are fully charged and there is plenty of memory. Please help.


Could be one of the ribbon cables is loose. If you can open the camera and reseat all the ribbon cables. If the lens makes an ugly grinding noise the gears to the lens are chewed up. You can go to esupport.sony.com for a flat rate repair quote. Hope this helps.

Olympus SP-350 will not power on anymore. Battery is fully charged. There is a light buzzing sound coming from the battery slot when you push the power button. Camer was never dropped nor wet. I took a...


not sure - but seems like you have a power on issue, so try to check into the battery bay and see if there's any dirty stuff or leak from battery or just make sure the contact is clear.

Using a meter to double check to know that the batteries are BOTH charged is advised. The Buzzing noise seem to indicate the motor is having problem extending the lens or the motor's gear is stripping hence making the noise?

My Sony DSC-W230 turns on and lens keep opening and closing, and then it shows "turn power off and on again". how do i fix this ?


This sounds like a stuck lens. Here is a good blog about things to try to fix it:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
The blog is about a lens error, but when the camera lens opens and closes, there is often a problem with the lens.
Also make sure the battery is fully charged, and good. Also make sure the contacts are clean on the battery, and also inside the camera.
If all fails to get it working again, get an estimate on repair first, since the cost can justify just going ahead and buying a new camera.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Turns on beeps lens comes out tries to focus


HI, this will occur when there ia a lens mechanism failuer. Inside the cam housing , there is a mechanism that is powered by a small servo motor. this mech can become lose or unstable, in return, jamming itself open or closed. When this happens, you will need to send it to the manufacture for this repair. they will replace the motor and mechanism as well. Contact Pentex for a repair ticket. they will refer you to a nearby repair depot.
