Check out first if the battery is fully charged.and if the battery is very old.then prefer replacing the battery instead of charging.and if the battery is new,then the cover of the lens must be getting stuck up so try tapping the device from all the sides it will automatically get opened.also off the camera completely and try to move the lens door manually up and down.sometimes the gear assembly gets stucked and this makes it free to  move.

It wont turn on to take pictures, it wont boot up. but it will turn on when you want to review the pictures you took.


Hi,
I experienced the same symptoms, with the exception that the lens cover wasn't opening correctly (I'd boot up to review mode then try and enter shoot mode from there [by turning the dial] in order to see if it was a battery or circuit board issue). I was seeing that the lens cover wasn't closing the full way when the camera went to auto shut off after this procedure. The solution to my problem was as per the below Olympus link:
Lesson learnt: The lens cover motor workings need TLC and should be opened and closed whilst immersed in fresh water periodically to remove any debris, and that the camera is sensitive to issues with the auto lens cover.

When opening lens barrier camera will not switch on.


The problem you are describing is a problem with the sensor that is behind the sliding lens cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

This may be a repair issue with the sensor that is located behind the front sliding lens cover. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair policies and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

I have a olympus 400 mju camera i cannot seem to get the lens back in to close the cover now i have fitted a new battery


This normally happens when dirt or dust particles get caught between the lens segments. Check for this. If you can't do it yourself, take it to the nearest authorized service center.

Camera stopped operating


Well I know what the review says about underwater to five meters http://www.ephotozine.com/article/Olympus-Mju-725SW

but I would take it with a pinch of salt frankly.
You could get onto Olympus and tell them you know- 'You said I could take it under water - now it wont work' - They may replace it

OLYMPUS MJU CAMERA


Hi, I had the same problem and when I took my sliding lens cover off I released that the black level was broken.  Luckily I had an old olympus which had the same part which I glued on and now it works perfectly.  I would take the camera apart and take a picture for you but it was very hard to replace the case without breaking my repaired piece.  This is what the small black lever should look like.  (first one is from side, second is from top) It turns when the case it sided along which turns a lever inside and opens the lens.  As shown in the first picture, the small black vertical part is what was broken on mine.  Try moving the part with a screw driver from side to side to see if that opens the lens.     7ccb095.pngI hope this helps in some way.  Just ask me if you want any more help with the camera.  jameswalker3  :)

Lens will not come out of camera


There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc. The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working. Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.
