The problem you are describing is a problem with something in the lens assembly of the camera. 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 $73.85 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.

Camera lens wont open


Saw a similar problem recently, same cause, and result was the lens was jammed.

Did manage to wiggle it free after many attempts...it only stays on for a few seconds before faulting and going off...but it's a bit hard to get a hold on the edge of the lens to pop-out the low side.

Started by laying it on it's back and checking the level of the lens edges for the low spot, then used a thick sewing needle to lift up while turning the unit on (again and again) until the gear-ring popped back in during the lens-check at start-up.
