    read elsewhere on this site that by turning the camera on pointing up at the ceiling, it works normally. No idea why but I've tried it and it does.

    Thanks to rembo37 for the effort but at the moment I'll go with this temporary fix.

Tried turning the camera on pointing upwards as desribed. It worked! Guess the camera is on the way out, but knowing that I may get a bit more use. Thanks very much

Wow! it worked! i was about to through the camera away, it'd been failing to open properly for a week or two, but pointing it at the ceiling worked. it took the camera a couple of tries, but it got there in the end!

Olympus mju 700 - error D: 5e02

Hello Jakub,
As you might already know that you are not the only one who is getting this error.. there are thousands of others with you .. If that makes you happy :D
This code is a troubleshooting service code for "malfunction of focus motor/sensor". It is a motor/sensor issue and is normally caused by sand or dirt in the lens cover mechanism. Try to turn on camera while holding it with the lens pointing up.
You might even try hitting the camera on your palm in that position (by hitting, i don't mean a real HIT .. be sure that you are gentle not to break the camera).
If that doesn't work then try this... when the lens is trying to come out and cannot come out completely then you can assist the lens by pulling it out manually (once again, understand that its a delicate camera and I don't want you to show how powerful you are by pulling it with all your mighty vigor.. be hard and gentle at the same time .. I hope you understand what i mean)

Please let me know if any of the above steps work for you and do rate the solution :)
All the best.

Lens Error on my Photosmart M525

The lens extension mechanism is probably damaged,
or the circuit that drives it.

It could also be caused by poor batteries or bad
battery connection

see my other posts on the same topic.
