1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instrutions.
2. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
If those two suggestions do not work, then I suspect you have a circuit problem. Was the camera ever in a hot or damp situation? Could moisture have condensed inside from bringing a cold camera indoors?
Focus is stuck - could be sand or something in the focus gears. That's the weak spot for these lens. Contact your local Olympus service center or any other camera service center or me at email@example.com
I quote: "A couple of days ago after using it when trying to see the pictures on
the camera the LCD did not show anything. The lens reacted and even
take pictures but nothing was visible on the LCD screen."
That means that there was a problem either with a LCD display or with ribbon cable.
Now:"I tried charging the battery and removing it from the camera, now the
camera only does a bit sound when switching on but nothing else, the
lens does not even come out."
That means that the ribbon cable had probably shorted, now the camera may be furtherly damaged.
The camera must be disassembled to access the LCD and fix the problem. The repair must be done by an experienced technician, as to access the LCD you need to remove both covers.
Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).
If the lens is not coming out, its stuck, or it wont completely open or close, that is the lens assembly, that needs to be repaired. You need to take it to somebody, that can either repair it or replace it for you. There is nothing that can be done, other than that......
