Question about Olympus Camedia E-20N Digital Camera
I have an Olympus E-20p. Recently, when powering on with the dial set to program mode, I hear a clicking sound that changes tones (two distinct patterns of clicking) and then goes away. The control panel shows the following numbers in this order: 084 500 161 502 284. Sometime during this process, the red light blinks showing the CF card is being accessed, but then camera doesn't respond. I can't take any photos.
If I turn the camera off and set the dial to playback mode, then turn the camera back on, the camera accesses the CF card and lets me view the contents of the card on the monitor. The control panel shows the batter indicator and the CF card indicator.
As far as I know, the camera has not been dropped.
Can anyone provide any information about what may be happening?

SOURCE: CF card problem
A slightly similar experience in that a Memory Stick Duo inexplicably set itself to write protect. No matter what I did, I couldn't format it. I was forced to buy another card. If possible, test it with another card or two. If it happens with more than two or three cards, then I would suspect the camera.

SOURCE: Mode Dial broken
Mode dial repair kits are often listed on eBay. Don't try the repair yourself unless you have some experience in dismantling (and more importantly re-assembling!) modern cameras - although given that getting an "official" repair is not economic it may be worth the risk. There are instructions for replacing the dial here http://myolympus.org/5050/modedial/ It's really not that difficult but patience and good eyesight are needed.

it would appear that the computer is seeing the camera incorrectly... the camera should be recognized as usb mass storage device and uses the driver usbstor

Have you tried removing the batteries and waiting a few minutes and then putting them back in?
