Question about Olympus Cameras
There is nothing you can do to fix this, the lens must be sent to an Olympus service centre for repair.
Repairs are normally done on a fixed-fee basis unless the lens is still under the manufacturer's warranty, so if you visit the Olympus website for your country you can check out the fee and determine whether you're better off buying a good used lens (still a gamble, but typically £45-£60) or a brand new one. Given that you have the kit 14-45mm you might decide that the repair costs are better invested towards the far better but far more expensive 14-54mm which is a vastly better lens in terms of optical and build quality, but most casual users won't notice any difference except for the extra weight.
