Having problems with your Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera ?

Used FE-170 hardly powering on.

\015 I got this used camera from a friend of mine becasue it wasn't working. The camera powers on, But the screen is black. After a few seconds, the camera shuts off. The lens comes out when turned on, but when it shuts down, it doesn't go back in. The little light in the middle is orange. I have tried many types of batteries but nothing helps. When i plug it into the computer, everthing works nomally, as it should.\015\012If anyone could help i would really appreciate it.\015

Answers :

The lens need to be replaced or repaired. It is not fully extending. It may be that one or more of the plastic gears or plastic rods that hold the gears in place, are broken. I repaired two plastic rods in my lens, by drilling holes for new plastic rods,(I cut plastic rods from a plastic toilet bowl chain!!! It fit inside the gears perfectly), and super glue the rods in place. Replaced gears, put camera back together and BAM in worked! Nothing like a perfectly working refurbished rig job. Camera takes great pictures to this day.

My FE-370 Olympus digital camera will no longer turn on. I used it to take some photos, turned it off and when I went to power it up again about 30 minutes later nothing happened. I tried fully charging the battery but that made no difference and my PC doesn't recognize it as an external hard-drive either. It seems to be completely dead. I have been able to access my memory card thru a printer and all photos are there, right up until it stopped working. It seems like a power problem. Do yo

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter.

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger.
