Olympus 5060 - buttons not working consistently

I've got a 5060 that has seen a fair amount of use.. Occasionally, I'm unable to adjust the aperture or flash settings - the buttons don't seem to work at all, the on-screen menus don't appear, but the camera still works otherwise (I can take a picture, just can't adjust the settings). I'll change the batteries, turn the camera on and off several times and then it will usually function normally. I've tried leaving the camera in a ziploc bag with some silica packets for a couple of days in case there was some moisture in the camera, but the problem still appears sporadically. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Where do I adjust the aperture on my Olympus 725Sw?

I've gone through the manual, and i don't think you can. Many simple point and shoot cameras have just one fixed aperture. In the manual, the only thing i found was on page "10. P (Program auto) The camera automatically sets the optimum aperture value and shutter speed for the brightness of the subject."

I have an olympus stylus 850 sw, and i want to know how to adjust the aperture on the camera

This camera has a fixed lens and there is no way to change the aperture for the camera. It is a simple point and shoot model camera. The camera whether in Auto or Program mode will determine the best aperture and shutter speed to use based on the lighting conditions you are shooting in.

Wide zoom flash problem

I haven't used that particular camera, but it would sound a bit like a problem with the white balance setting. Check your manual about white balance adjustment and try to take a few test shots manually adjusting the white balance to see if this might be the case.

IESP auto focus

iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-5060 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system, to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-5060 Wide Zoom, the AF target zone automatically moves the to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.
