Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

We have a Panasonic DMC ZS3 camera that has been working fine until now. We are on the North West coast of Costa Rica. When you turn the camera on, the lens, which was out when shut off, goes in, then comes back out. The camera screen tries to focus, then goes to a blank screen and says "SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). When you shut it off, the lens does not retract.

If the light blinks while charging then it means that you have a faulty battery and it needs to be replaced. Usually they only last if you're lucky 12 months so I would suggest replacement of the battery and that should solve your problem. :) ... Digital Cameras

My Olympus FE-320 will not focus. When I turn the camera on, lens extends and retracts a couple of times, camera beeps and turns off. If I press the review button while the lens is extended, I can see old pictures then switch to camera and see a live screen, but out of focus. If I try to zoom, camera beeps and turns off.

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on. When I attempt to turn the camera on all you are able to see is a black screen and there is also a buzzing noise which I assume is the lense trying to adjust itself. The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.
