    I had to send in the camera...I don't know what the problem was so I am assuming it was not something I could do to correct it.

    I have the same problem of no ability to get into any functions due to a zoom error message.  Hard to believe that the message exists, but no help from Olympus at all in the manuals.  Why the message if no explanation as to what it is???  I will probably never buy another Olympus due to this lack of help in the manuals.  Does anyone have an idea of how to fix?

Well you guys might not believe this but its true. so i bought an olympus stylus 730 2 years ago. and then one i turned it on and it said zoom error and it would turn off. i was so devasted because i had bought that with my birthday money and to think that it didn;t work anymore made me feel terrible... so i went to circuit city and they told me and my parennts that i was better of buying a new one bevcause it wouldn;t be able to work again.. so i just gave up and stopped trying for about 9 months,. but just yesterday i told myself i need to make that camera work and i started hitting it against the table and my dad tried it to... it wasn;t until my brother tried it that it turned on i was super duper happy knowing that it actually worked... so now the thing that you have to do is turn it on and beofre it turns of you need to hit it on the side where it hjas the power and the reset button,, don;t give up... i actully had to hity it pretty hard for it to work... GOOd LUCK ... hope this helps

hi try to reset ur camera...To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes...

Error message for olympus camedia digital camera D-560 Zoom

When I transferred those particular pictures to my laptop for some reason they were partially deleted from the camera which gave the 'picture error' message. Deleting that picture completely got rid of the message.

I would start by looking at all of the push buttons on the camera. One may be stuck down.

What just started? The camera? Do you have fully charged batteries? Did you check the manual?
