hi,you have problem in lens gear that why you heard a weird noise or what you said buzzes.sometimes the cuase of excessive force or impact from the lens it will damage the gear or misallign and not only felldown or drop will damage the camera. Its also affect the sand or dust goes inside of your lens thats whay the gear not work properly.
if you have knowledge repairing electronic its better you need to check the lens gear,cable and len barrel if all of this are ok. if not bring to service center for estimation first before you proceed to repair.
It sounds like a problem with the focus system. Could be sand or something - happens quite often with these lens as the focus gears are very small. So the lens have to be cleaned / repaired - it's a hardware problem, so you should contact your local Olympus service center or other local camera repair shop. If they ask too much, I can offer you the repair for a very good price. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The focus is stuck. Could be sand, dirt or something in the focus gears - well known problem for these lens. Contact your local Olympus service center, but

I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.
Don't try and manually push in the lens at first...the buzzing is a warning letting you know that something is wrong with the camera. By accidently removing the batteries during shut down you interupted the shut down sequence. Try and turn on the camera and immediately press the play button on the back. This should reset the camera. If not and if you are under warranty it needs to be serviced. If you are not under warranty then you can try and push the lens down. Don't use a lot of force but try and gently do it.
This problem is related to the lens assembly. The camera will check if these work properly when it's being powered on. If something goes rong here it will turn off or display you some error messages. This problem occures when some of the lens mechanisms get out of place and jamms or damages other components. As the lens assembly is a very delicate mechanism I would suggest you to go back to the service center that fixed it the first time and ask them to check it. Don't try to power the camera on anymore because the lens assembly could be damaged further or beyound repair if the servo-motors are trying to alling the lens something jamms them and not allowing them to move properly. This will force the servo-motors and they could damage other components or themselves. It could be fixed, but don't force the camera to work anymore for the time being.
Please post back if more informations are required.
you are right. Actually there is some problem with lens assy.. When you turn on the camera the processor of camera start to check whole camera including mechanism. when it find something abnormal,it will not let to turn on the camera. This is the problem. I think there is some problem in lens mechanism and i and processor also suppose something abnormal in lens mechanism which makes buzzing sound.
it is advisable to go to sony for professional repairs.
hope you got it...
