Question about Olympus SP-700 Digital Camera
What's the solution for this ?!
Error 5e02: 5f08 means lens error.
Try resetting the camera, by removing the batteries, and by holding down Ok/function button while you turn the camera on.
If the lens do not extract, try helping them out by gently slapping the back of the camera while you turn it on. If they do not retract, try helping the lens back in while turning off the camera.
If that does not help, then the camera need repair service.

this is the most common problem with the olympus cameras the lens has been knocked and by you pulling on the lens it sounds like you have done some damage to the motor that bring the lens in and out thats why its making that noise what you needed to do was move the lens either to the left or the right you will no when its fixed because the lens just pops out and the camera will be fine this works every time i just hope you havnt done to much damage alredy goodluck

The error message (D: 5e02) means that your lens is dying / dead. It just happened to mine and I was told that it could be repaired, but it would cost as much as a new camera. I've only had mine 2 years and I've been really careful with it, so I'm a bit annoyed, but I have used it a lot!

If the camera makes a whirring noise when switched on then unfortunately from the many threads on this issue the problem appears to be with the poor quality materials used by Olympus. The lens gearing mechanism is plastic and if it is obstructed whilst extending then the gears can become damaged or slip out of alignment. As per feedback from many other users the cost of repair and likelihood of a re-occurrance are reasons to dump the camera and go for a more reliable make. (Or try thumping it which appears to work in some cases !!)
This being a 2nd bad experience with Olympus quality they are well and truly off my list of preferred suppliers

lens is out of adjustment , try slapping the camera in your palm as your powering up, it might take a few times so be patient that should reset lens
