SOURCE: Olympus C-370 LENS GOES OUT, IN AND SHUTS OFF

It is possible that a flexible circuit connector has loosened. This can be checked by removing the covers, DISCHARGING THE CAPACITOR. (The large, black, cylinder beside the lens.) Remove the black Phillips screws holding the LCD and main circuit board and then carefully lifting the circuit and checking the large connector on the back of the main circuit. BE CAREFUL! It is easy to break the flex. The other, most likely cause is the failure of the Photo Interrupter in the lens. The only solution is to replace the lens and reprogram the camera.

Lock lens aperture ring at minimum aperture


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its minimum setting (largest f/number). If there is an orange slide on or near the ring, slide it so that the aperture ring doesn't turn.

Camera stuck with lens out & wont turn on =/


This happens with many cameras, whatever you do, do not force the lens back. You will see this as a suggestion on some blogs. Doing it might further damage the camera lens and other parts.

I dropped it , now the lens wont retract fully


Unfortunately this wont be an easy fix and you will need to take it in for repair. Is your camera still covered under warranty? If it is try contacting your manufacture. If not, try to call your local electronics repair shop. Hope this helps!

Lens error, restart camera


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.
