Lens wouldn't retract. Wehn I switched on the camera it made a whiring noise and displayed the error code and switched off. I connected the camera to my pc and the problem rectified itself.

I had the same problem and I fixed it with a spray of silicon oil on the lens barrels (between the two parts of the lens and between the camera and the lens, not over the lens glass!!!)

Another solution is to try to put the camera on with the lens directed on the air.

Re: Olympus Mju 400 error code d: 1E12

I faced the same problem.... googled the problem many a times....... only suggestion was to switch the camera on and off while shaking the camera..... i thought that was funny but .... nothing seemed to work for a long time...... i guess its a luck factor..... and one fine day.... out the blue everything came to normal while i was shaking the camera.... and it has been fine ever after........ but one would need lot of patience......

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.

Ian, It's not a solution I'm afraid, but I have the exact same problem as you had. What's worse, I followed the exact same methodology as you did and now my camera doesn't work either. Unlike you though, I own it, so have nobody to answer to. Wondering how you got on with yours? Did you find a fix, or take it to a repair shop in the end? Sean

Lens not Extending

this problem is caused because that the lens servo can`t move the unit of lens. this menssage mean that the sistem don't go out the lens. You have to sincronise the mechanism of the lens, carefully disarm the unit and review that the gears are ok.
