    I have a C-40ZOOM and I have the same problem. Probably would cost to have repaired as to replace however I really like this camera. I have 2 other Olympus cameras and they do not compare.

You should call Olympus Customer service to discuss what it would cost to have it fixed. Their number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3. I would not try to fix this on your own as it sounds like a diagnostic error message off of the main camera circuit board.

I have designed and produce on a limited basis a new slide/nut plate for the c-50 that is easy to install using existing screw. Just slide the old nutplate outand slide the new one in and attach screws solves the problem of the sliding door and the off/on switch behind the door ,I sell it for 25.00 +3.00 shipping

Olympus technical support you need to speak to. Don't tell them about taking a picture of the dog. Cats are OK. Dogs wreck cameras -;)

The shutter in the lens is stuck closed. You need to take the camera to a shop where they will replace the lens assembly.
