Question about Olympus i:robe IR-300 Digital Camera
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.

I received an email saying that a solution had been offered; I got out the camera and put battery in and turned own; noticed that I didnt get error messaged and was able to take a couple of pics; I was happy it worked; then I shut it off and the lens didnt close, so I tried your method; tapped a few time and saw a little of the lens; then turned camera off and the lens closeds; seems to be working fine so far; thanks a bunch
