Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

So, I've had an Olympus fe-230 for almost two years now. This camera was sent in for repair under warranty about four months after purchase (August '07), because I got caught in a rain storm with it and it fizzled. Olympus fixed it up for me, and I haven't had problems since then. It is possible I may have dropped the camera at some point since then, but I really don't remember doing so. Anyway, the problem: the camera was working just fine this Wednesday night, I took pictures, it was running o


Answers :

You have to get it fixed from the shop you bought it at. Because, one of the wires has becomed chemically messed up. So the best solution is that. But, remmeber when you go to the store you bought it they might ask you to pay even if you have a warranty still, tell  them to fix it for free. Hope I helped.

Olympus SP-550 UZ won't focus properly most of the time. Focus point should be infinity since my subjects are seascapes, sunsets and clouds. I've tried all 3 AF focus modes but none work consistently. I can get it to focus sometimes if point the camera at the ocean first. I've even tried manual focus but it won't focus to infinity. This camera is practically new, has never been dropped. Is this a known problem with this camera? Is it a settings problem (I've reset the camera to factory settings

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

Disassembling camera I have a GE A730 camera that was dropped. I think I can fix it If I can disassemble it enough. The problem is I can only get the back cover with the LCD screen off. The main board is loose except for a dozen solder points to the small top board, and a few wires. I really don't want to do any soldering, but I can't see how else to proceed. Anybody know what comes off next and how?

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on.
