I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it shows a great view of the picture in the screen. Even changing the setting to night, does nothing-it's black I honestly was thinking of replacing the camera for this reason, it is very frustrating. Other than that, it is a great little camera.

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image.

The last 3-4 times this happened, the problem usually went away within a few days. I've tried replacing the batteries, but to no avail. Is my lens bad, or is it due to a more intricate problem?
