If it's the pins in the cable you can get another cable.
If you mean the pins in the camera then you need to contact Olympus and see if they can repair it, or try a local camera repair shop. Now a days things are not made to get repaired and often sadly have to be replaced.

If you did not format the internal camera memory, you can initialize and install: Set the camera to OFF. Remove the SD card and connect the camera to the computer with the USB cable. The computer and camera should negociate and the camera should initialize and it asks to install the software.

As long as you don't put in any memory card, where the camera can put its pictures, it will say write protected.
If you did put in a memory card the wrong way around you also can have damaged the little switch in the memory card holder, so it always thinks the switch is engaged. Please put in a correct card, with the lock switch up. Not pointing to the lock position and check if that will work.

As soon as the camera acts different form what you expect, you can "reset" any software problem, by switching off, removing the battery and memory card and then reinserting both and switching on again.
When you remove the battery, check it the contacts are clean and shiny. Do the came for the memory card. Use a bright light and eventually a magnifying glass to look in the camera, to the contacts there.
You can clean contacts with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
If you have a multimeter, or know someone who has, you could try to measure the voltage of the battery, to make sure you still can trust it.
The LI-50B is a 3,7 Lithium Ion battery and should deliver 3,7 volt to the camera.
When you try to measure the voltage with a multimeter (Set it to DC), it should read at least 3,8 volt. If it is less, you can assume the battery won't work as soon as you put it in the camera.

Sounds like the switch in the memory card holder that detects whether the 'write protect' tab is engaged may be broken broken.
