There is a small delay after you click a picture so as to enable the camera to focus properly. If you force click then the photo will be out of focus. If the delay is too long then you have to check the settings to see if the self timer is not enabled .

Make sure you're inserting the batteries with the + and - poles in the correct direction. Also, try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Fixing a Lens Error on a Digital Camera

This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include “E18 lens error”, or “lens error, restart camera”. Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.
The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. Believe it or not, one BIG contributor to lens errors is using a camera case. Sand, gunk, case fibers, etc... accumulate at the bottom of the case. These materials love to cling to the camera by electrostatic build-up from the camera rubbing against the side of the case (especially those cases with soft fibrous intreriors). Once these materials work their way into the lens mechanism, that's all she wrote. I have many Canon's, and NEVER use a case for this very reason.
A camera owner that suffers this problem may have no recourse for having the camera repaired. Many camera makers will not honor repairing this problem under warranty as they claim it is due to impact damage to the camera, or sand or debris getting into the lens gearing mechanism (neither of which is covered under warranty). The quoted repair cost is usually close to or more than what the camera is actually worth.
Fortunately, about half the cameras that suffer this failure can easily be fixed by one of the following methods. None of these methods involve opening the camera, although some have potential to cause other damage to the camera if excessively done. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.
The methods are listed in the order of risk of damaging your camera. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order. And remember, these fixes (especially #6 and 7) should only be considered for a camera that's out of warranty, who's cost of repair would be excessive, and would otherwise be considered for disposal if unrepaired:
Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
Fix #3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.
Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.
Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera.

it sounds like you deleted the images. If you are downloading images from your camera or card....you should open the folder to view images. hold control key down and select all images that you want to download. right click on them on click save.

it sounds like you are trying to rename a folder before downloading anything. I know that when I try to edit or rotate any of my images on my card, i first need to download the images to a folder before doing any edits. it does sound like you were trying to rename your folder. normally, you would right click on folder, and click rename. hope this helps. if you need anything else, feel free to ask!!!

Try to look for the format of the video inside the PC.
You can use quicktime or realplayer to view your video.

Direct downloads from camera to PC are heavy on battery capacity. Remove battery and either replace it with a new one or a fully charged one (note that Olympus recommend Lithium or rechargeable LiON batteries). Press the shutter release once to make sure that it is not in sleep mode.
Make sure that the camera is in "Data Transfer" mode.
Now start the PC, plug in the USB cable at the PC end, and then connect the camera to the PC.  Use the eject/remove function to disconnect the camera.  Now switch the camera to one of the taking modes.  Try to zoom the lens.  If it is still permanently out then you have a trip to the dealer.

If you deleted the pics whilst the camera was connected to the computer, you can get them back by reconnecting the camera with the XD card in it, then going to the recycle bin, and right click on it then click on each pic and then on restore, if you deleted them through the camera itself then the pics were physically removed from the XD card, at which point your not using that particular XD card will keep the card in the state it was in (as if you use it it may overwrite in the slots that those old pics were in and make it difficult if not impossible for the data recovery expert to retrieve) when you deleted them and the only way that you might be able to get them back is by enlisting the services of a data recovery expert, however their services are very costly so you have to shop around.

You can find out how to do this on page 76 of the users manual. PLEASE CLICK HERE for the manual

Here are the instructions if you cannot get to the manual..

You can copy (backup) all the image data stored in the internal memory to the card. The image data in the internal memory is not erased by copying it to the card.

Hi,

A quick way to multi delete the pictures (providing you have backed them up first), is to use the camera's menu to format the card.

Formatting the card will completely delete all the images and get the card ready for use again.

Pixel Mapping is a feature of the camera to check and adjust the CCD and image processing functions. Locate Pixel Mapping in the camera's Mode Menu and select OK to activate it. Once Pixel Mapping is completed the Mode Menu displays. The bright dot should no longer appear in your downloaded images.

You can select several options via the EDIT tab in the MODE MENU, when the camera is set in PLAYBACK MODE. These include adding a frame to the image, Black and White, and Sepia tone, and there is also an option to “resize” the image to 640 x 480 pixels or 320 x 240 pixels in order to have a larger file for printing and a smaller size for emailing. When using any of these features the camera will display the image in B&W, or Sepia and if you press OK a copy of the image is produced in B&W or Sepia, which ensures that your original full color image is also kept .In the case of adding a decorative frame, after selecting your choice of a frame, when pressing the OK button the camera’s LCD screen will display the options of creating a new file with the frame on it or canceling the frame option. When you select “NEW FILE” you are creating a copy of the image with the frame around it, and the camera is also keeping your original image file.

There is an option where you can set the camera to capture two images side by side, within the same frame. This feature is called “2 in 1” and can be accessed through the Mode Menu. Press the OK/Menu button, and use the right (>) arrow key to access the Mode Menu. Press the up (^) or down (v) arrow key to navigate to the CAMERA tab and then use the right (>) arrow key to access this sub-menu. Use the down (v) arrow key to navigate to the “2 in 1” feature and by using the right (>) arrow hey the “2 in 1” feature will be active for the next two shots. After the second shot the camera will display the menu option for “2 in 1”. You can select the option again, or you can return to normal shooting by pressing the OK/Menu button.
