Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

My FE-230 is only 2 years old and will not turn on/off properly

\015 My FE-230 is only 2 years old and will not turn on and off properly. It now makes an odd noise when either is desired and sometimes it will just power off right after turning it on. Also, once it's powered on, I get a black screen. The only way to get the screen up is to hit the picture button, to see previously saved shots, then press the camera action button. Finally, the screen shows what I'm looking at, but the screen is fuzzy and all photos taken are fuzzy/blurry as well.\015

This sounds remarkedly like a camera that has been dropped. Even by someone else! The odd noise it the can[mera trying to set the lens up and failing. The black screen is because the lens has not travelled the distance etc. multiple problems !
it needs a complete overhaul and may well be cheaper to ditch it and get a new camera

My 2-year old camera has a blank screen when trying to take a picture. If you go ahead and shoot, the picture processes properly--you just can't set up a shot. The menu screen shows faintly if held at a particular angle. I have charged the battery. I have turned it off and on multiple times--doing the same thing and hoping for different results!

This sounds like it could be a bad backlight on the lcd display. Before you mess with that, make sure your battery terminals inside the camera, as well as on the battery, are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). It's also possible ... Nikon COOLPIX S200 Digital Camera

Fuji a345 I have a 2 year old Fuji a345 which periodically has a problem with the lens cover not opening and, of course, the lens not extending into position when the camera is powered on. Generally turning the camera off and on a few times will eventually result in the lens cover opening and allowing the lens to extend into proper position for shooting pictures. Any ideas.

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one. ... Canon Digital Cameras

My canon TX1 is about two years old. I recently went to use it and its not working properly. I can put it in play back mode manual mode or scn mode. As soon as I turn it to auto which I normally use the screen goes black and the power goes off although the lens does not retract. The battery is fully charged. Any suggestions?

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

No solution here. If you want a quality Nikon, you need to spend thousands for their professional DSLRs. Take care of your Canon and you should be very happy with it. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

It won't turn on! I charge it, and the camera is no more than a year old, and yet it wont turn on. However, when it's on it's base, it can connect to my computer and turn on fine! Is it the battery?! Why has it degraded after only one year? And after it's been on the base for a while, the red light of the base starts blinking.

Mine won't turn on...unless I hit the red button, then the menu button, then repeat...the red, then the menu. When the menu comes up, it wants to reset the date/time etc. I just ignore that and hit the menu button once more and it's ready to shoot. ... Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera

Went into the water, about 5 feet and after that the camera wouldn't turn on. I have Stylus 1030 SW. I have had the camera for about a year. It was working fine in the water, and I would rinse it in fresh water, like they said, but this time I came out of the ocean and it turned off and stayed off. Do I need a new battery? This battery costs $39. in retail store! My battery is a year old! Please e-mail:Thanks-June

It's probably not the battery but if you want a new one at a much better price, to to bestbatt.com ... Digital Cameras

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged. I put the batteries in correctly. Now the camera will not turn on. My wife was using it on a trip when it happened. I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.

The camera is 2 years old, when turning on the power it goes to the date set,you can change the year, then it slides over to the month, but seems froze up, then the camera resets itself, if you skip the date set up, it shows a view on the lcd, but can't take a picture, and the camera resets again. My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.

I have a samsung L200 digital camera. It was working fine until my 2 year old little girl decided she needed to play with it. Not sure if she done something or not but now the camera will not work. When I try to turn it on the power button lights up but that is all that happens. The screen does not come on or anything else. Also the lens seems to be stuck and will not go back in. And I also just noticed that the power button will only turn the camera on but will not turn it off. I was trying to

Cannot turn off picture protection feature on VPCS1070. I can get to screen that shows little key, but can't figure out how to turn it off. By the way, I'm 79 years old (Brownie Kodak age), so am not to computer savvy. The manual says just go o the protection screen and turn it off or on. I can't find where to do that.

Never mind - I finally fixed the problem. I just reformatted the Internal Memory and all is well. Thanks Anyway. ... Sanyo Digital Cameras

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

Hi,\015\012 First check your warranty - you may be able to return it for repair under that - and yes it needs a repair. The metering system is now broken, The chances are you'll recieve a new one as it is more cost effective to them to do this. ... Olympus FE-270 Digital Camera

Resolution olympus d-560 ...when i set the resolution to sq1:1024x768 (76 frames) press "OK" and turn the camera off it resets back to hq:2048x1536 (20 frames), it keeps doing this even if i shoot some pictures and then turn it off. could it be the memory card ? the batteries are new and everything else works fine, the camera is about 3 years old.

No, it resets itself because it is an older camera.Most older cameras will, once turned off, return to their original settings. So, if you want it to be 76 frames, you will have to do that each time you turn on your camera. ... Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera
