Question about Olympus Stylus Cameras
See above. Repaced with fully charged battery. Still no power and lens still extended.
Try this, set the dial to P, then open the battery door and then press the Menu button and OK button together for about 5 seconds. If you see something in the screen like Olympus? Then press the Menu and OK button together again for another 5 seconds, this is a hard reset and hope it fixes your problem?

SOURCE: Cannon G7 need help
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?

I called the store I bought it from, as well as the Olypmus toll free number. They both told me I had to mail my camera to them with a brief description of the problem. It is still under warranty, but I have to pay for shipping to get it to them. They will repair it and send it back to me. Do not try and fix the camera yourself, instead get it fixed professionally with all the proper tools once and for all.

Try removing the card first and then trying to power up the camera. Cameras often fail to turn on/off when a card goes faulty. Next I would try pushing the playback button, it also acts as a power button but starts the camera in playback mode. If this works it could indicate a problem with the power switch circuit itself. If there is still no sign of life I would suspect a fuse to have blown. They are internally located and very small, you would need to have a service centre try replace it for you. Good Luck!

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.
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.
