I'm dealing with the same issue. Most likely there is fine sand or dirt jammed in the lens. Do not try to clean it with any liquid cleaners. Take it to a shop to try to get it out.

SOURCE: Camera will not turn on.

You should probably call Olympus Customer Service to discuss having the camera sent for repair. Their number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

HORIZONTAL STRIPES ON PICTURE


Hi!
Turn on the camera
Pull the lens at maximum zoom
Turn off the flash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shoot the picture - look into the lens.

If no motion picture shutters in the lens:
1. Faulty flex cable shutter
2. Faulty valve solenoids
etc.
Requires repair of the shutter assembly in the lens

If you saw the shutter and blurry pictures as paint - matrix defective - Replace the camera matrix.

Blurry pictures


A common problem is a finger print on the lens. If needed, clean the lens with a microfiber lens cloth. Commonly available with spectacle cleaning kit. Did you drop it? Are you actuating the shutter by "squeezing" the button and not pushing on it, moving camera around? Try using a shaky hand setting, often indicated with a hand icon and wavy lines, indicating movement.

Try switching to Shutter Prority (S) with a fast shutter speed.If the light is not so good, up the iso to 800 to gain that faster shutter speed..

You do not say the lens in use ? if VR, make sure its switched on or use a tripod.

Hope this helps

Blurry pictures....


reset the camera and try taking pictures using by soft pressing the shutter instead of a hard press... on digital cameras, hard fast pressing will cause the picture quality to be not as good

Which lens


Hey caturner7,
If you have a large family and you are having a difficult time fitting everyone in the frame then a wide angle lens might be exactly what you need, but this will probably not make your images any sharper. The most common cause of blurry images is the camera is moving during exposure. Even the slightest camera shake can cause blurry images. There are multiple solutions to this, first make sure the shutter speed is high enough, then make sure the ISO is set to about 400, and then make sure the flash is on. Another cause of this could be that the camera is not achieving focus so make sure you are pressing the shutter button down halfway so the camera can achieve focus before you take the picture. A slightly telephoto lens usually produces the most pleasing portraits. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Fuzzy images


Hey jjbeanwink,
This is a very nice lens, and is unlikely that your blurry images are caused by the lens. The most common cause of blurry pictures is that the shutter speed is set to low. A general rule would be your shutter speed should be at least 1/60th of a second while handholding the camera. The bigger the lens, and the higher the magnification of the subject you are using the faster the shutter speed you should use. If camera shake is the cause of your blurry pictures you could also try using a tripod. Another common cause of blurry images is subject movement, and one solution would also be setting a faster shutter speed. Another solution is using the flash to stop the action instead of the shutter speed. Of course manufacturers do occasionally make a bad product and that is why there are manufacturers’ warranties. If you just purchased this lens you could have an authorized service technician look at the lens and see if there is anything wrong with it. I these suggestions help!

Sincerely,
Allan

Blurry Pictures!!!:(


This is something that will probably have to be sent in to be fixed. First try resetting your camera. In REC mode press menu go to setup tab go up to reset press right arrow highlight reset & press set. If that doesn't work send it in to repairs.
