This normally happens when dirt or dust particles get caught between the lens segments. Check for this. If you can't do it yourself, take it to the nearest authorized service center.

SOURCE: Lens stuck open will not retreat battery fully charged when it is turned on lens moves in and out but will not fully close

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 $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.

SOURCE: Film won't advance. But does when the back is momentarily opened

Do you have fresh batteries in the camera. Batteries may be needed to set the exposure and trip the shutter. If the batteries are good, the back when closed may be jamming the film between the cassette and the body. Also make sure your fingers is not restricting the rewind knob on the left side of the camera.

SOURCE: olympus 770 sw lens cover not closing

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Hi

Sorry to hear about your issue with the Olympus mju 770 SW. There's a couple of things you can check and try, before thinking about a repair or binning the camera and getting a new model.

1. Check the contacts on the battery are clean?

2. Clean the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment are clean?

3. Is the charger actually charging the battery? Try another battery or see if you can test the existing battery with a multi-meter to check there is some power in it.

It is fairly common for chargers to fail, so it's worth checking out but don't go spending money on a new charger unless you know it will fix your problem.

Hope this helps

David

It wont turn on to take pictures, it wont boot up. but it will turn on when you want to review the pictures you took.


Hi,
I experienced the same symptoms, with the exception that the lens cover wasn't opening correctly (I'd boot up to review mode then try and enter shoot mode from there [by turning the dial] in order to see if it was a battery or circuit board issue). I was seeing that the lens cover wasn't closing the full way when the camera went to auto shut off after this procedure. The solution to my problem was as per the below Olympus link:
Lesson learnt: The lens cover motor workings need TLC and should be opened and closed whilst immersed in fresh water periodically to remove any debris, and that the camera is sensitive to issues with the auto lens cover.

The cover over the lens is two pieces. The top one open and closes properly but the bottom one is stuck in the open position leaving the lens unprotected when the camera is off.

Olympus Mju mini - lens cover will not open


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.

Lens cover stuck DSC600


You may have the same problem that i had. It does involve taking the camera apart. Not overly difficult - just fiddly.

Camera stopped operating


Well I know what the review says about underwater to five meters http://www.ephotozine.com/article/Olympus-Mju-725SW

but I would take it with a pinch of salt frankly.
You could get onto Olympus and tell them you know- 'You said I could take it under water - now it wont work' - They may replace it

Lens cover stuck open


I recently had the lens cover stick partly open.  There are 4 segments to the lens cover, and if we number them from the top, number 2 was not closing.
I gently flicked the segments a few times, in case there was a grain of dirt causing it to stick (although the camera has never been in a dirty or dusty environment).  This caused the lens cover to close fully each time, but now it would not open fully, segment 1 would not open, although it would stay open if moved by finger.
Anyway, after a bit of fiddling, I got it working properly again.  The way that the lens cover appears to work is that only segments 2 and 3 are pushed open or shut by springs, segments 1 and 4 are pushed open and shut by tiny tabs that catch on segments 2 and 3.  If the segments somehow get pushed out of alignment, then they either bind (causing the cover not to shut), or they get disconnected (causing the cover not to open fully.
Now I am not sure exactly what I did to get the mechanism form the stuck open state to the not opening state, but from there the way to fix it is to:
-With the lens open...
- Hold segment 2 in the closed position with firm finger pressure (which will tend to push it towards the lens).
- Push segment 1 towards the open position until you can see that it has cleared the edge of segment 2.
- Lift segment 2 way from the lens so that it will rub past segment 1 as you...
- Move segment 1 to the open position.
- Repeat if necessary to get the technique right.

I can't provide any guarantees, and I am not about to repeat the excercise on my camera, but it was a lot easier than sending it off for repair.

Lens will not come out of camera


There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc. The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working. Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.
