Question about Olympus Cameras
The menu, info, and all functions do not work. It is not the battery as I have tried several new batteries that work in the same camera owned by others.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Sounds like you have a stuck power button or shorted power switch. To repair you'll need to remove the top cover. Please see the following disassembly guide. It's in Estonian, but you can follow the pictures.
Continue to page 2, paying particular attention to the second and third picture. It looks like the power switch is connected to the camera through a simple ribbon cable. I'd suggest removing the ribbon cable end from its connector, cleaning any obvious crud, and then reseating the ribbon cable end into its connector. Ribbon cables are notorius for suddenly shorting or getting a bad connection at the connector. Usually just jiggling the cable can fix it too :-) Good luck!

I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

It sounds like your rechargable batteries might be bad.
Try a new set of batteries. It might be a cheap fix.
If this helps please vote for my solution.

Testimonial: "I would never have thought to take out the SD memory card to solve this problem. This was an easy, no-cost solution. Many, many thanks!"
There is very little that can be done, salt water will corrode metal on contact, all eletronic parts have been compromised, if the memory card is still intact save your pictures and remove it from the camera to transfer to new hardware. Replacing the camera unfortuneately is the only option.
