Having problems with your Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera ?

Probably not a fixable one, but here goes. I

\015 Probably not a fixable one, but here goes. I always used the internal memory until I was going to Chicago and put a memory card in to try it. When I went to eject the card, the printing on the camera said to push to eject so I thought I needed to push this hole next to the wording. I noticed something in the hole and started probing around in the hole. I even said to my friend that the area to push certainly was little. The next thing was an error message when I started it up saying that the "card cover" was open. I even opened up the camera myself to try to bi-pass the message and get my internal pictures off the camera to no avail. I asked many people about the trouble, and even took it to a camera repair place. The conclusion was that I messed with the mother board. DOA... I just want my pictures off the camera. Patricia\015

Answers :

Hopefully you know by now that the message wanted you to push on the card to eject it. The pictures you want to retrieve...are they on the card or the internal memory? You can easily download from the card using a simple card reader. If you've ruined the mother board circuit on the camera, then you probably can't retrieve the pics from the internal memory. In retrospect, you should never use the internal memory on a camera. It's too small to be of any use and it usually causes no end of troubles.

Water damage Hi, One of my kids knocked a drink over my camera and I have dried it out. The lens was not working, but seems to be now. But the picture is not good at all, and I can not see the picture I am about to take. It take photos OK just can not see what I'm taking. I keep getting told its probably cheaper to buy a new camera than to get my one fixed. Help please. Thanks Lisa

My camera is a new purple polaroid 1834, I got it for Christmas. I tried to take a picture the other day and it took one, and then shut down with the lens still out. It will not turn on, and everytime I press the power button a green light flashes and it beeps three times, but nothing else happens. I have tried replacing the batteries with brand new ones..still nothing. I've tried to batteries and everything.What is going on and what can I do to fix it? Is it fixable?

Hi, I had a spare kodak c330 camera which was in perfect working condition. Since I am using a Nikon camera now, i thought of converting the kodak camera to an infra-red camera. so i opened it, and after a few unsuccesful attempts, I was finally able to open the lens assembly and take out the infra-red filter. however, when I was putting everything back in place(assembling), there was a big spark - one like short circuit - probably caused by the huge capacitor that is used for the flash circuit.

The capacitor has shorted the circuits i would not bother with it .....sorry ... Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera

Can you tell me where to purchase a new lens? My daughter dropped my camera, Kodak easy share M1063, and it does not open anymore. Probably a gear is off inside the housing, which I could not open without smaller screwdrivers. I figure it would be easier to replace the whole lens. I have already taken it apart and know that I can replace the lens if I can find one. I had an estimate for an online repairman to fix it for $85 + shipping. For that price I might as well purchase a new camera. Only r

Fuji S5000 camera problem....The battery door will not latch because the cheap plastic retaining nipples inside the battery box have worn down/or broken. Tape will not even hold door closed! The retainers on the hinged door are fine (naturally it's the body!) The retainers don't meet each other as one slides the door closed and the spring loading makes the door pop open. Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)

Lens Error put my mini tripod on to my camera and apparently the legs are not stable enough when I left it on the top of the table. One of the legs gave up and the camera rolled down and fell on the floor, about approx. from 3 ft high. I immediately checked everything looks ok, but when I turned it on to take pictures I'm getting "LENS ERROR" on all settings eg: Auto, Manual, Scene etc.. Is it fixable? If it is...will it cost me an arm & a leg?

Broken screen I had the camera in my pocket and I bumped into a bench as I was walking by and the screen on the camera no longer works, it lights up, but only shows up white, It still takes a good picture, cause when I view my camera card, the pictures are there, Only I can't see anything on the screen when I take the picture, So I have to guess when I shoot a picture, Can I replace the screen myself?

My daughters friend dropped her Olympus FE-340 camera when it was on. It must have fallen on the opened and extended lens because it looks like it has jammed the outer lens ring off to one side. Is something like this fixable?

You can try to pull the lens back into its socket, and it might work again for a while. Usually when the lens barrel is forced of track, something is broken in the process. Plan on installing a new lens. ... Digital Cameras

Appreciation CanadaBruce I was browsing the website since I have a Nikon D80. Considering the fact that Nikon sells this as an amateur camera (meaning not a cheap solution), I suspect their Q&A and test wings are probably getting a lot of flak internally for the problems its users experience intermittently. Besides the F-err with 18-135 lens, I have not experienced other problems yet. I hope and pray to whatever powers there be it stays that way. One way I have tried to get around this problem i

My Olympus FE-370 has a broken screen, my fault. I bought a replacement off ebay for really cheap and it seems like it would work fine, but I'm having trouble taking the camera apart..A few of the screws, three around the screw-in tripod holder in the base of the camera, two on the right hand side close to the lens, and one right under the USB port, refuse to come out! If someone could help me with just that part, I would probably be able to figure out the rest! Thank you!

Could you email me the web site location for getting a free camera instruction manual for my Canon PowerShot A560. I ordered the camera on line--it was a display model. Expected to get instructions w/ it. Emailed the business I ordered it from and was told I could probably get it for free on line. I have gone throught SO many websites trying to find the one that might give me this information--worn out w/ looking--so I decided to ask for your help--Please. Sara Setzer [email protected]

My wife's Kodak Easyshare V1253 has to be reset (date and time) every time we replace the battery. What could the problem be? Also, it takes too long to take one picture from another (probably setting regarding display time). Other than that, great camera!

I have a Canon PowerShot SD 1200 IS Elph. I searched your site for about 20 minutes before I sent this, so as not to bother you with a question you've probably been asked a million times, but....How do I erase ALL of the pictures stored on the card? I'm getting the message, "Memory Card Is Full." I figured out how I can do one at a time, but "All" ?...no such luck. I am a complete nerd, so if you could explain it as if I was in Kindergarten, that would be best! Thank you~Elizabeth

I'm assuming you've downloaded the pictures you want to save to your computer because there's no going back. Go into the camera menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions and your card will be completely erased. ... Canon Digital Cameras
