Question about Cameras
When I am wanting to take a picture the screen is black. this has not happened before. The lens is open as in to take a picture as normal.
It sounds like the camera shutter is faulty. Has it been dropped and have you tried new batteries? Take it to a camera shop as i think they may suggest a new camera.

check out first if the battery is fully charged.and if the battery is very old.then prefer replacing the battery instead of charging.and if the battery is new,then the cover of the lens must be getting stuck up so try tapping the device from all the sides it will automatically get opened.also off the camera completely and try to move the lens door manually up and down.sometimes the gear assembly gets stucked and this makes it free to move.

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.
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 $66.85 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.

Turn on camera. Blurry pic. Wirly grinding noises. Blue screen.
Codes on blue screen:
5 f 0 8
5 e 0 2

Sometimes smacking the **** out of it fixes it. Today it doesn't seem to do the trick any more.

Most likely the shutter "curtain" (a few pieces looking like sheet metal just behind the mirror, designed to protect the camera CCD from dust and damage due to too much light) is not opening. This will require servicing by Olympus, since you will have to take the camera apart to be able to reach this camera part. Unfortunately, this may be a pretty expensive repair.
