Question about Olympus Stylus 840 Digital Camera
The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

My 730 wants to close but goes into jerky action instead of closing completely then it just shuts off.
At this time when the opportunity arises I will use a small phillips screwdriver on that side and attempt to take it apart and try to observe why this is happening. Repair is out of the question because for that money one can buy a newer technology. Things were not meant to be repaired anymore...how sad.

I had what sounds like the same problem. The camera was dropped and the shutter was stuck open. Just kept showing error message.
As I felt I had nothing to lose I began tapping it on a soft book and the shutter started to appear. I then shut it just using the end of my finger. When I then turned the camera on again it opened and shut when turned off. It has worked fine ever since.
Seems a rather poor design.
Hope this helps. Very best regards Peat.
