My Olympus fe320 has a blurry screen & takes blurry pics. Is there a fix / solution to this?

Could be a steamed up lense or just dirt from storage. It is over 10 years old so possibly past its best by date but take it to a photographic shop and ask them for an estimate.

Olympus Tough T-100 12.0MP Digital Camera. How can I fix it? It is still not working.

Question edited for clarity. It sounds like your battery has failed or have you tried two of them? Is there a date on the battery? They don't last forever. Check the charger for output using a digital multimeter. Also try cleaning the battery contacts on the battery and in the camera. https://www.google.com/search?q=olympus+t100+battery Powered with a LI-80B Lithium-ion battery (recharged via the included AC adapter) you can enjoy shooting the T-100 for about 190 photos per full battery charge. ..

Combining zoom modes for closer long range photos

Hi, if you go into camera setup and make sure that the digital zoom is on then the camera will automatically go seemlessley from optical to digital zoom when the maximum optical zoom is reached. The digital zoom can only be used in certain modes, so if you cannot change the digital zoom to on because it is 'greyed out' change the camera shooting mode. please can you clarify the second request. Kind regards

WHEN I TURN MY OLYMPUS ON IT GOES RIGHT TO "ZOOM ERROR" THEN SHUT OFF. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

When your Olympus camera goes straight to "Zoom Error" and then turns off, it is likely that there is an issue with the camera's lens mechanism. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the problem:
  1. Turn off the camera and remove the battery and memory card. Then, wait for a few minutes before re-inserting them and turning the camera back on.
  2. Gently move the lens back and forth with your fingers to see if it can be moved and if it is stuck.
  3. Use a can of compressed air to blow dust and debris out of the lens mechanism.
  4. Check the lens for any physical damage such as cracks or dents.
  5. Try using the camera without the zoom function to see if it still turns off.
  6. If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it may be best to contact Olympus customer support for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose and fix the issue or tell you if a repair is needed.
It's important to keep in mind that the Olympus camera is an older model camera, which makes it harder to find replacement parts and professional repair services. If the camera is still under warranty, you may be able to get it repaired or replaced by the manufacturer.
