Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?
How much would it be to fix the lens i sat on it and the lens is pushed in the twisty thingy
More than the Hundred Bucks that would buy you a new one. These cameras are not made for repair, as the labor to take one apart and repair plus parts if you could get them, is more than the base price of the camera, as they are made by robots on an assembly line. You could take it to a camera shop and just ask, and see if the technician could give you an estimate. It may be that he has a quick fix if nothing is broken.

My lens is stuck and it will not extend when I turn on the camera resulting in a lens error. It automatically shuts down. Before it came to this state it was fixated at an angle extended on one side and pushed back on the other. I push the other side down in an attempt to fix it, but I think I may have made it worse.

The camera has not been used for some time. First up it would not open at all. Then following clues in support response t4613896 fix 1,2 and 4 I got the lens out, grabbed it before it retracted and rotated it a little. Finally got the lens opening, and retracting, nearly normal. Now when it opens there is a click at the end of its travel, and ditto when it closes, which sounds louder than usual.

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.
Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera
