Re: OLYMPUS DIGITAL ALL WEATHER
1) Make sure that the batteries are in good condition
2) Check and clean any dirt or corrosion from the battery terminals.
If the power supply voltage suddenly drops during initialization, or when the lens is trying to extend itself, it could produce this kind of error.
3) Make sure that the lens extension tubes are not mechanically jammed.
4) Remove the batteries, turn the unit ON and wait for it to fully discharge any internal capacitors, then put the batteries back and try to turn the unit back on. This should fully RESET the internal CPU. ===
Generally this kind of error means that the camera's internal computer is trying to activate the lens zooming motors, but the motors fail to move as expected.
Other causes could be: a) burned out ZOOM motors b) burned out motor drive circuitry c) bad motor positioning sensor d) defective computer components e) failed internal firm-ware.

When I transferred those particular pictures to my laptop for some reason they were partially deleted from the camera which gave the 'picture error' message. Deleting that picture completely got rid of the message.
I just pulled my 320 out after not using it for 4 months and the lens extended and zoom error began flashing on the screen. After reading a few other post on the net about how much it cost I decided the camera was a goner. For good measure I banged it on my mouse pad a couple times and the lens suddenly retracted and it is now working fine. Doubt it will work very often but might be worth a try. Make sure you hit it on something soft to prevent other damage.
I think a grain of sand was blocking the zoom tubes. This will not work if the camera has been dropped & the zoom apparatus is bent. It is entirely at your own risk & may invalidate any guarantee but they may charge anyway if you have got sand in.
I cut a finger of 80gm computer paper 1cm X 5cm. Inserted this first around outer zoom tube & worked it all around. It goes in quite deep so be gentle. I switched on to open zoom & tipped out batteries before it had time to close & repeated procedure. When I put batteries back in it worked OK. I repeated procedure with lens fully extended. I found a thin bit of plastic packing worked better as it did not kink so easily. It is still working today having failed 100% before.
We had this problem for about 2 weeks, we discovered that having the camera auto retracted after the "ZOOM ERROR" message, giving the camera couples of light slaps (slap the camera's LCD side and aim the camera down), this fixed the camera right away
