So, I've had an Olympus fe-230 for almost two years now. This camera was sent in for repair under warranty about four months after purchase (August '07), because I got caught in a rain storm with it and it fizzled. Olympus fixed it up for me, and I haven't had problems since then. It is possible I may have dropped the camera at some point since then, but I really don't remember doing so. Anyway, the problem: the camera was working just fine this Wednesday night, I took pictures, it was running o

My Olympus FE-4000 camera lens got jammed when it was dropped on the hardwood floor. The camera turns on, but the lens will not move, it just stays crooked and clicks when it automatically tries to adjust. When I turn the camera on, nothing shows except the "Olympus" on-screen. It won't even allow me to plug it into my computer to retrieve the photos on the memory card

My Olympus FE-290 hit the floor I can't get an image when I turn it on. I was able to put the pictures that were on the card onto the computer. When I came to the spot that I dropped it the next pictures(?) were just a black square on the computer. About 4 or 5 of them that I had tried to take a picture after it dropped. I can't get the last picture taken either. Jenny

The zoom is stuck on my Olympus Camedia C-8080 camera following a short face-down drop. How can I open and repair this, or where can I get it done cheaply? The camera has served me well, and although I've already upgraded to the Canon EOS 40D SLR I;d still like to use the old Olympus. Thanks for any assistance. Dan [email protected]

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!
A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera
Olympus FE-210 I dropped my Olympus FE-210 when it was on and the lens was out. Now, the camera still workes fine, but the lens will not close all the way. After I shut it off, it opens and closes as if trying to fix itslef, but tops after three tries. The zoom still works, but it makes a clicking noise as the lens adjusts. I wouldn't mind any of this, except that now I can't upload my pictures. Normally, when I hook up the USB, a screen comes up on the camera dispaying my options. Now when I ho
