Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

3040 Issues I just got a 3040 and had a question about a couple of things I noticed (I've never owned an Olympus digital camera). When the camera is powered up, the noise from the lens coming out sounds awful (like a grinding noise). Is this normal? It zooms in/out without any problems but it just sounds odd. It just doesn't sound smooth... Is a stuck pixel on the LCD enough of a reason to return it for a new one? The pictures do not show the stuck pixel but I am concerned that a new and e

The LCD on my DMC-TZ5 looks like someone ran the image through one of those turn-your-picture-into-a-cartoon filters. The problem is present in both record and review modes (and menus too), both for still pictures and video. It does not affect the actual pics/video once downloaded to the computer; it's just a problem with the LCD display. It developed this problem after I took it to a repair shop to fix a stuck lens shutter/cover thingy. Before I take it back and accuse them of screwing somet

I have an Olympus D-460 Zoom 1.3 megapixel which I've had about a year. I bought it used and it was working fine up until about a week ago. Whenever I snapped a picture the button seemed to get stuck and nothing would happen and also the flash wouldn't go off. I would have to close the lens and re-open it again to get it working. Do you think that maybe the batteries I'm using are too weak? Let me know. Thanks.


Yes, you are right. The batteries have gone out of power for sure. I had a similar problem with my cam sometime before. The battery actually doesnt gets 100% discharged. Itworks whenever you repower the cam. But when taking a picture it just needs mo ... Digital Cameras

I bought a Polaroid i733 Digital Camera for my daughter in March, 2007. A couple of weeks ago when she went to change the batteries, the lens got stuck half way out. Now it won't work.
