Having problems with your Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera ?
Camera freezing up
\015 When I turn the camera (Olympus Fe-170)on the lens extends as it should, however when the camera should normally show on the screen that I can take a picture it freezes and turns itself off after about 5 seconds. There is a faint whirring sound.\015\012\015\012When it does turn itself off, the lens doesnt retract back into the body of the camera. It stays extended. \015\012\015\012I have tried resetting (by removing all cards and batteries) and changing batteries for new ones. The lens isn't jammed as far as I can see (when I plug it into my computer via USB the lens retracts immediately).\015\012\015\012Any thoughts? Any ideas? Or am I just going to have to go to a shop?\015\012\015\012thanks all! I turned my camera on, then the lens won't come back the way it used to. It's making this whirring sound and when I turn it on again, it says "Lens error, restart camera." and I do it over and over. It still won't come back.\015
Did someone spill some pop or anything near the camera? If so, then you'll need to clean that out with rubbing alcohol

Camera Freeze Sometimes when I snap the shutter, the camera frezes, a very small red light quickly flashes (which is located to the right and bottom of the LCD on the back of the camera), and in the LCD there is the following display: D: 3C85 To clear the camera, I have to turn it off, then back on.
