Having problems with your Olympus FE-46 Digital Camera ?

My camera won't turn on and the lens won't open and the little light in the corner (below the zoom button) will turn on but then beep and go off.


Answers :

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that\015\012is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your\015\012problem\015\012may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery\015\012contacts inside the camera which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into\015\012the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean both ends of\015\012the batteries, place them back in the camera and give them a full\015\012charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace the batteries, or the\015\012camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

I dropped the camera this morning & now it wont turn on at all. I am just sick. Help! It fell on the top edge by the zoom button. When I picked it up, the side door (usb input etc.) was open. I tried to charge up the battery & that didnt work either. I called Lumix/Panasonic & they are helpless. They told me that I can send the camera in to be replaced for 175.00. I may as well just get a new camera.
