Hit the bottom of the camera on a hard surface. Needs to be a good whack. Then turn it on again.

Turns off right after startup chime lens does not retract


This can happen when you use a battery that is almost without charge. Please remove the battery and charge it, before placing it back. Then be careful not to touch the lens, till the camera has a chance to retract it.
After you place the battery the lens should retract.
If the battery is really charged. You should not think it is charged, because you had it on the charger till the light indicated battery full.
There is also a chance you stopped the lens while it was coming out. A sensor detected this. To avoid damage to the lens construction, the camera switched off automatically. Also remove the battery and after a few seconds replace the battery and switch on the camera. Careful you don't touch the lens again.

Lens won't retract


Lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

C875 lens won't retract


Camera (with new rechargable batteries) won't let the lens come out or if it does it instantly retracts.

I dropped my camera and the camera says it has a lens error. The lens will also not retract back into the camera.


Something like that has to be repaired at the factory. Check with the manufacturer; repair fee might be reasonable. For example, Canon used to have a $99 flat-fee repair for their point-and-shoot cameras, which isn't too bad if your camera was worth $300.

While turning in off softely press the lense in and out a couple of times. The lense would retract. If not fully, but most of the way, push the lense a little harder in until completely retract. If you turn it on, I should work fine. The reason the lense does not retract is most likely some dust in there somewhere. If it did not help, you would have to open the lense and clean it and close the lense.

I hope it helps,

Len will not retract


Bad Lens assembly, cost more to fix than replace.
Check the Olympus store for clearance items,
Pricewatch is a good one also.
Never buy a used one online, new is ok, because dropping them is the #1 reason for the lens assembly failure.
I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpfull.
Best regards, Paul
