Did you happen to drop it in sand or on a hard surface. by the description of the problem it shows that the movement of the lense assembly is not proper.i.e. it is having friction in the movement.Needs to get it repaired.

If the camera is still under warranty then return it.
If it is out of warranty then replace it
There is not a likely repair option
Though Olympus Customer support may advise another remedy

How do I turn on the Digital Zoom?


First, the digital zoom feature is not available in AUTO mode.

If you're not in AUTO mode, is the digital zoom turned on in the menu? Check the "DIGITAL ZOOM" entry in the Shooting menu.

Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds. Battery is fully charged, tried a resetting: no change.


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"


First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

1) Make sure that the batteries are in good condition
2) Check and clean any dirt or corrosion from the battery terminals.

If the power supply voltage suddenly drops during initialization,
or when the lens is trying to extend itself, it could produce this
kind of error.

3) Make sure that the lens extension tubes are not mechanically
jammed.

4) Remove the batteries, turn the unit ON and wait for it to fully
discharge any internal capacitors, then put the batteries back
and try to turn the unit back on. This should fully RESET the
internal CPU.
===

Generally this kind of error means that the camera's internal
computer is trying to activate the lens zooming motors, but
the motors fail to move as expected.

Other causes could be:
a) burned out ZOOM motors
b) burned out motor drive circuitry
c) bad motor positioning sensor
d) defective computer components
e) failed internal firm-ware.

none of these cause are user fixable.

Hope this helps

If it works, use it as long as you can.

Fixing snap-shooters is generally not worth it,
since digital cameras evolve rapidly and lose
value even faster with age.

Olympus Stylus 600/Digital 600 6.0 megapixel


Hi

This camera can be very picky when it comes to the front lens cover... It's not a simple mechanism and has many small parts and gears involved. If the lens cover is dislodged it won't work smoothly, and if the case is dented it will not be able to move properly and this can cause lens problems.

If the lens was out when the camera was dropped, then it's possible the lens was damaged and not the lens cover. Sometimes you can tear down the lens, clean it and rebuild it and it will work smoothly again, sometimes this doesn't work and the lens needs to be replaced.

If you're comfortable opening the camera, first check out the lens with the front body section removed so nothing is blocking the lens cover. Does it work properly now? If not, then expect lens damage to be the issue.

No sound when making video clips


Yes there is an option to turn the sound off, so you can take up less space on the memory card. Try turning to the video clips on the dial then push the menu button for options!
