Question about Olympus Cameras
If all the other functions are working such as the lens extends and it focuses, zoom works, Red Led stays lit ( not blinking )and you say all the menu functions are working, It's most likely,one of three things, one of which you can try to fix.
The memory may be corrupt in which case the cpu thinks the memory is full, Transfer all pics including your favorites to your photo program.
Format Xd card ,clean out your favorites( format) twice.
Remove battery ,charge it reinsert, and then go back in to setup and start all over like it's a new camera,Change date and all settings ,then reset them correctly.
Try taking a picture. if it works try again with the Xd card in just to eliminate that possibllity.
If it still wont work it's most likely one of two things,
The lens assembly is not fully extending even if it appears to be,
or the microprocessor is is thinking the lens is not ready to function. contact Olympus for a RMA if still under warranty.
If not check out the repair shops on this site, they will be more than happy to give you a repair quote,
If the repair quote exceeds 75% of buying a new camera,
I hope it helps, you have a nice camera.
Regards and good luck, Paul
