You may want to call Olympus Technical Support as there was a recall with this camera because of the image processing chip. It was only affecting certain serial numbers. Their telephone number is 888-553-4448 option 5 and they will be able to see if your camera is in one of the affected groups.

It wont focus and the photo is blurred


If the camera is showing a black or distorted screen when set to photo, and photos that are taken with the black screen also show up black or distorted, then this would likely be a CCD imager failure, a common occurrence for your model camera.
If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.Please check this linkfor more info.

A black line on the top and bottom


In your Recording Menu, check that the Disp. Overlay is turned Off. The lines are showing the portion of your image that will be cropped if you print a 4 x 6 photo (3:2 Guide).

Screen all fuzzy when taking photo.


What you have is a CCD issue. The CCD is the part of the camera that captures the images and stores it to the card. When the CCD goes bad it does some pretty funky things, including blurry, fuzzy or other weird things when they go bad.

Here is a link to an eBay auction with a CCD on it.
