Question about Olympus Cameras
I've got an issue with my Olympus C770 where it will not turn off. I have to remove the battery to power it down. This means that the lens will not retract.
Once I put the battery back in (with the switch in the off position) the camera stays off. On switching it to the camera or video modes it will start up but not on the play position.
To me this seems like a software logic issue. Is there any way I can do a full reset or firm ware re load on this camera??

SOURCE: the lens won't retract
If the lens is stuck out extended you may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair process and pricing. If the battery is fully charged and the lens still stays extended then this is a clear repair issue as something in the lens assembly has failed. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
