Having problems with your Olympus FE-110 Digital Camera ?

Camera lens comes out and goes back in when I turn it on.

\015 If I turn the camera on, the lens comes out fully, stalls, then goes back in. It comes out one more time, stalls and goes back in another time. Then it turns off. I've tried new batteries and everything, it still happens. While the lens is going out and in, the screen is blank, and the red camera light is on.\015

Answers :

Sounds like the lens can't get into the proper position. Any possibility of damage to the lens?
