Question about Olympus Stylus 840 Digital Camera
Olympus Stylus 840:
The lens won't open. I am unable to take pictures, but I am able to review my old pictures. I was taking pictures one afternoon (successfully), turning the camera on and off throughout the afternoon. Then I tried turning it on, and it wouldn't work. I thought maybe the battery was dead.
But I have charged the battery, and it still will not work - only able to see saved pictures. What is the problem and how do I fix it?
I have a olympus stylus 840 and the lens wont retract tried taking the battery out tried lightly pushing the lens but it wont move it just gives me a beeping sound. I cant get anything to come up cant take pictures I can check my saved pictures but thats all.

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 .

I just called technical support and they told me the camera has an internal problem. You have to call them if your camera is still under warranty and send it to a repair center.

Forget the in-pano function and use a free stitching program off the internet. When shooting panoramas, you need to be in aperature priority or manual mode so as to keep the exposure consistant, especially going into the sun or away from it in your pictures. Although this is good practice, it is not needed for a few stitch programs as they average out all the exposures and make the entire pic uniform. This works pretty good in all but the most demanding exposure swings.
