Question about Olympus Zuiko 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Digital ED Telephoto Zoom Lens for Select Cameras
I have an Olympus E-620 and when I try and use the autofocus the lens just oscillates back and forth. Another family member has the same setup and I tried the lens on her camera and it did the same thing and her lens worked on my camera so I know there is a problem with my len. Any suggestions? Thanks

You probably didn't wash the camera after using it underwater specially in salt water. The salt will dry inside the lens and may cause this problem. Try soaking the camera for a while - wash it according to the manual's instructions. Hopefully soaking it will clear the deposits and clear the lens. Good Luck.

This happened to me as well. Fixed it easily, once I balled up and took apart the lens.
bike guy is right on the money. The linkage between the autofocus motor and the lens assembly has popped out.
Luckily, this repair does not require and parts. The linkage just slides back together.
Take apart the lens starting from the back. After removing enough parts you should be able to see down into the lens and at the lens assembly that moves when you zoom. There should also be a ring that, has 5 contacts facing up, and if you move it turn the AF motor.
You should see the linkage coming off this ring and should see where it should sit. If the problem is this linkage (which looks like a bar extending towards the front of the lens), it won't be seated properly. Use a small screwdriver to pop it back in.
This repair requires a bit of handiness, but mostly it's just taking out small screws, being patient, and putting it back together. I'm not going to put instructions, because if you're going to take apart a lens, you should know your way around electronics.

SOURCE: olympus 710 lens won't open
I found tilting my camer downwards towards the floor and removing the usb cover and then turning the camera on worked, I am unsure if its a faulty motor or slightly damaged lens but once it's retracted the camera works fine - this was a test I was able to repeatedly do.
Opening the camera did not display any visible faults although with the housing off it did operate better. this will unfortunatly remove some the cameras weather proofing in the way opening a splash resistant watch will mean it no longer can be used near to water, this is due to the fact these cameras are factory made, also you risk dust getting in.
I have picked up another Olympus with the same fault on eBay it would appear the 760 model also suffers from this same problem
