Find yours on the list (I found it on there so it is there).
Hope this helps :)

The max i've seen verifiably used was 128MB. I have heard reports of 256MB used but could not verify. I currently use 128MB without issue.

I had what sounds like the same problem. The camera was dropped and the shutter was stuck open. Just kept showing error message.
As I felt I had nothing to lose I began tapping it on a soft book and the shutter started to appear. I then shut it just using the end of my finger. When I then turned the camera on again it opened and shut when turned off. It has worked fine ever since.
Seems a rather poor design.
Hope this helps. Very best regards Peat.

The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor 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 $73 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.

The markings on the lens barrel are for macro mode purposes. When the zoom ring is set for 300mm that is the distance you are shooting at. It will zoom the barrel all the way out to 300mm if it needs to to help to obtain focus on the subject.
Hope this clears things up for you.
