Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

Camera won't turn on, or focus, and buzzes when turned on.

\015 Camera won't work basically. Everytime I try to turn it on, the camera lens will focus in and out, and the screen is black. Unless I turn the option wheel fast, then the screen remains black. Either way, pictures come out EXTREMELY blurry, as if the focus is way off. Everytime i try to take it off zoom, the camera makes a bad buzzing noise, and the camera focus's in and out again, before shutting off. i really need help. =(\015

Does anyone have instructions for getting at the lens mechanism? I totally understand the risks of doing this myself, but the cost of getting a shop to do this is nearly as much as a new camera! I am sure the problem is caused by sand. The lens at first just went in and out a few time, before the camera turned off. I vacuumed it, then slapped it against the side of my hand whilst turning it on - now it turns on properly with the lens out, but it wont focus - so you can only take blurry photo
