Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

Olympus fe230 - power on but image is blurred

\015 I had this problem a few months ago, someone told me to reset and remove battery for 24hrs which resolved the problem, but this does not work now any ideas?\015

Answers :

Thanks for all the replies. A friend suggested i put the camera in the freezer, yes the freezer for 24 hours without the battery installed or memory card, i tried this and guess what...... it still did not work!

The camera is just outside the warranty now, costs for repair just ain't worth it, so in frustration i shook the camera quite violently and when demonstrating the fault to my friend the dam thing worked! and has been working since. When not used its wrapped in cotton wool in the drawer, by worth a try. Thanks all. Bryan

Hi folks
Other than sending it in for repair (you will be charged)
Call Customer Service on the phone, Complain, ask to speak to the Customer Service manager, Complain
.
When I say complain, I mean do it nicely.
The Customer Service Reps, are just doing their job, and are limited by what they can do, Their Manager is not.
Try to remember that they listen to a lot of irate and rude customers every day, so being polite , they really do appreciate the courtasy.


This seems to be a common enough problem that they probably published a white paper for distribution to the repair facility's. so they should be aware of it.
If all else fails , inquire about their trade up program.
I would rather spend a few dollars to get a new, and possibly a
upgrade with a whole year warranty than to have to spend full price for a new one.
And if you do decide to purchase one, don't forget to register it online. They will extend your warrant and offer you a discount on accessories

Remember be persistent and pleasant. they DO want you as a satisfied customer.
Don't get frustrated and jump through the hoops.
You might just find it has a happy ending after all.
Regards and good luck, Paul

My olympus Fe 230 has a problem on start up. the red light keeps flashing, the image remains blurred and the lens keeps retracting and does not fully open and the only time I get a clear image is when I focus to original size after zooming and that too for a split second only.

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures.

Not Focussing Hi ! I am Vineet from Indore,(M.P.) India I bought a new Olympus C-170 in 2004. Recently I'd been to Chennai and on the beach we took couple of photos with my digicam. But suddenly it locked and the sliding lens cover (On-Off switch) got locked. I immediatly took off the batteries. Later after few hours away from the sea beach, the buttons started working and camera switched on too. Now the images on the screen are blurred, without focus and the photos too are unclear and blurred.

Blurry area on photos taken with Olympus Stylus 770 SW. Does not matter if taken with flash or not, indoors or out. Blurred area is about the size of a US 25 cent piece when viewed in Picasa, usually in the same area on all photos on the right side. Details of image can be seen thru the blurred area.


Have a look at the lens, is there something stuck to it or dirty. If so needs cleaning. I'd try a damp cotton bud. Don't get water in the camera. Use several buds if required. Be Gentle. ... Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!
