Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?
When taking a picture tscreen is black and half pict is black
\015 When you take a picture the screen is black and after the flash goes off what you've taken a picture of is half in shadow. We noticed that a shutter inside the camera lens is not opening up all the way which is why only half a picture is taken. We purchased tha camera in July of 08 and were wondering if we had the reciept if the manufacturers 1 year warranty would cover this.\015
As long as there are no markings on the camera showing that you may have abused it, the warranty will cover it. Try lightly flicking the lens (not the glass, but the sides) a few times and see if that clears it up.

Lens stuck My camera won't register to open the lens. I don't know how it was before, but the screen is completely black and it won't take pictures. If I open the lens manually, the screen shows the image, but obviously I cannot take a picture with my thumb across half the lens. Is this fixable, or should I get a new camera?

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems.

I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I wer
