Olympus FE-190 - dropped it!
Hi, My daughter has just dropped my Olympus FE-190, it was turned on and that lense was out, it will not go back in properly. When I turn if on it just moves in and out a little and then turns itself off.

Any ideas??

It's broken...

All kidding aside...

Just my opinion but it's only a $200.00 camera. It will most likely cost more in the end to repair than to replace.

Guys like me will try to wiggle the lens and see if we can snap it back onto its tracks, but that is almost always a losing proposition.

You could also call the Olympus service center to see if they will give you a flat rate estimate for repair. However, my experience with Olympus is that they want to see the camera before issuing an estimate. I would guess about $120, and they probably just give you a refurb.

Next time, buy the shock proof and water proof Olympus. It can be dropped from moderate distances and also dunked.
