Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

My Olympus FE-230 will turn on & the monitor will light up but will not display images or focus in on anything. I shot some pictures with flash (which still works), and all & then I plugged the camera up to my computer through the USB and I was able to view those pictures but yet the monitor remains lit up but blank. Can you help me with this? I would greatly appreciate your expertise. Thank You, Gil


Answers :

Hi, first of all how long have you owned the camera and how long have you had the problem? Most likely it is an issue with the lcd or its connection.If its less then a year old you will want to have it serviced under warranty if not... If you are technically inclined you can get a new lcd screen of ebay for about 20$. Also when you say lcd is lit up. Is it a certain color like all white? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

I turn the camera on, the Canon image comes up along with various icons, but there is no picture in the viewer - and when I take a picture I get nothing. It's like the lens remains covered. Is this a setting that is somehow changed? I reset - but no change. I can view pictures on the card, so it's not the display. I can also view settings - just not any picture.
