Question about Olympus Cameras
This could be the auto focus sensor that is not working that why the lens comes out and goes back twice. The other thing it could be is the range on the lens is not enough and it wont reach full extension. I would send it in. www.precisioncamera.com

This sounds like a CCD issue in the camera. The CCD is the part in the camera that captures the image (the "digital film") if you will and converts it to a format the camera can read.
When they go bad a lot of times you will see weird colorations and/or stripes, very similar to what you are describing.
You can try eBay for a place to buy, or maybe check the manufacturer.

I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a last option. As my suspicion was the zoomlens I took out two crews of the motor that operates it. Now the motor has a bit more space to move. It seemed to be too tight against the gears so it could cause an overload. After that it worked perfectly. I made pictures for hours without having the same fault again. Be carefull too make notes where all the tiny screws belong of the casing. And maybe it will be enough to just loosen the motorscrews, but leaving them out will not make it fall out of it's place. I hope someone can use this information.
Greetings, Ron Timmermans.

It may have jumped a tooth, something like a car timing chain. The Zoom in this camera is a barrel that has 3 cams that rides inside another barrel that has "tracks" for the cams. The motor rotates the the outer barrel via gear teeth, forcing the inner barrel to extend or retract. There is a tab on the gear teeth that might index the position of the zoom lens. If this tab is in the wrong position, if the gear jumped a few teeth, the camera may not know where the zoom lens is in relation to the inner focusing lens, and cause the "zoom error" If that is the case, I can help you get it back into position. This is a theory, but does explain the tab on the gear and the constant zooming.

Turn on camera. Blurry pic. Wirly grinding noises. Blue screen.

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