Did you remove the battery and replace it after a few moments? this will "reboot" the camera, like a cold boot from a computer. Then try again. I can't believe a landing on the carpet would cause mechanical problems, but you never know.
Could be just a setting, and that will be restored after the boot.
you may have accidentally put the battery in backwards look at the top off the battery you will see 3 copper connections now look into the camera you will see there are 3 connections in there.. line them up and drop it in until it clicks if you still cant power up you may have to charge it first.
plug the camera into its charger and leave it to charge for 20-30 min remove it from charger and try to get it to boot if it boots great you can put it back on the charger and let it finish if it still wont boot you should take the camera, battery and charger to the store you purchased from they will most likely try a new battery in it if it still wont boot it needs to be returned. I hope this helps
Olympus cameras have an "all reset" function that can be toggled on or off in the menu. If "on", all settings are restored to default on boot up, if "off" then the last setting are kept on boot up. If the settings are supposed to be kept be design,but are not, then the capacitor or small battery on the main board needs to be replaced. Not user replaceable, usually soldered on or socketed but no simple access.
You can try booting your Win98 PC with the camera already connected to the USB. Sometimes 98 has a hardtime detecting if and when a USB device is connected to it when it is already running. By booting with it already connected, 98 at the onset sees it and boots with all the needed support files. Further, by booting with the camera already connected, you can verify if drivers are really needed since 98 will auto detect with "New Hardware Found" message.
It might just be that you have to reinstall the drivers all over again.
Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
