\015\012would have to be taken in to be serviced. unless your comfortable opening it up and looking around the unit.

Color problem The same issue as the one who asked about the color problem. We bought this Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera March 2008 i think. It started to have this color problem last month which is April. The problem is whenever I turn on the camera the screen has this red violet color and it doesn't capture good photos. What do you think is the problem? How can I solve this? I already tried removing the battery and the memory card and tried changing the settings but still it never changes. Help

My touch screen of samsung ST550 camera isn't working. I cant switch on the dual screen because the button on the bottom left isn't working. I was just taking some pictures of water and a very little bit of water splashed into my camera. I wiped the water off and that's when the problem started. How should i fix the problem? I dont think the water created the problem because the amount of water which splashed into my camera was very small. Thank you.

Fixing yourself As long as you take it steady and have a box with compartments in for all the screws at different stages you should be all right. This model has the older style wires with different size plugs so you really can't go wrong. I think it is only the screen and possibly the keypad that have ribbon strips to worry about. There is very little in there really. 2 circuit boards, lens unit and flash unit. borrow a camera and photograph each stage

I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it shows a great view of the picture in the screen. Even changing the setting to night, does nothing-it's black I honestly was thinking of replacing the camera for this reason, it is very frustrating. Other than that, it is a great little camera.
