SOURCE: Camera will not operate
Use the audio-visual cable that came with your camera and connect your camera to your TV. Now turn-on your camera and switch to "view mode", e.g., to see a already taken picture on your LCD. You will not see anything on your LCD but may see an image on your TV, even if the image is "F18".
I used the above trick to clear an F18 error on an A75. Right now I am trying to get the camera to focus properly, but somehow the above cleared the F18 error.
If the above does not work, try connecting your camera to your computer's USB port using the other cable that came with the camera. Your camera will want to be on, and in the "view mode". I have read that this trick can reset an F18 error.
Good luck. At least it costs zero to try these two tips.

The focus is stuck. Could be sand, dirt or something in the focus gears - well known problem for these lens. Contact your local Olympus service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you a good price.

I've had cameras do that also. Not sure what the problem is, but it's going to need to be serviced to figure it out, it's not a setting problem, or something easy, and my problem was intermittent...so that made it even worse. Today's digital cameras have a complex network of mechanical and electrically intertwined circuits, and any small thing can go wrong. Often the service charge is more than the camera's worth, so one is faced with one of three choices. 1. Live with the problem, and nuisance. 2. Have it serviced (get an estimate first), and 3. Buy a new one (they're getting super affordable these days, and more capacity). Wish I could give you a simple solution, but maybe someone else out there can. Good luck.
