Clean it with a blast of canned air and maybe a q-tip. Sometimes they can get a little sticky.

Camera part won't power on


I had the exact same issue with the D-395.
I wiped off the battery contacts and the ends of a newly charged set of batteries to make sure they were clean. Also while the batteries were out, I opened and closed the lens barrier or sliding cover to try and drain any juice still in the camera. I put the batteries back in and slowly/gently slid open the lens cover. It turned on and works fine now.

The problem was the lens slide cover. It was making the required connection when slided the open the lens. It was intermitted. So I purchased a new camera for $79 bucks!

Lens won't deploy


The problem you are describing is a problem with the sensor behind the lens cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Canon sliding lens cover door


I have been having the same problem. Once opened, the sliding door will not close and the lens won't retract. But I have found that if you plug the camera into a computer via a USB, the lens then retracts enabling you to close the lens cover.
I'm still trying to find a way to fix this problem, since this is a great camers and still takes fantastic pictures.

Lens will not come out of camera


There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc. The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working. Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.

No picture on screen


Aside from the sliding lens cover, there is a tiny lens cover electronically opened when camera is power on. Check to see if it's not opening. If so, give the camera a snap to the surrounding of the lens part and try to turn on again.

Cover open, camera does not turn on.


Completely open lens cover by sliding the lens cover all the way to the right until you hear two clicks. The first click will put the camera into playback mode. The second click will put the camera into shooting mode.
