The camera has a 5x optical zoom lens. To enable the additional 2x (2 times 5 equals 10) digital zoom, enable the digital zoom in the shooting menu as shown on page 19 of the manualhttp://www.olympusamerica.com/files/D540_ZoomBasicManual.pdf

Try using tools like a flathead screwdriver.It'll take some grunting, and a little patience, but it should come out.
Hope this helped!

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Format the card in the camera if you can. If not format it FAT in windows with a card reader and then reformat in the camera.

Your camera uses xD cards, not SD. Now if you are using a micro-SD adapter, make certain that the cards you are using are 2GB or less standard micro-SD cards. Your camera will not work with 4GB or larger micro-SDHC cards as that format had not yet been invented when your camera came out.

Try this: create a folder on your desktop and label it videos. Then, using the card reader, open the files on your screen and drag and drop the videos into the folder. You need a player on your computer to play the videos so you may have to experiment trying to open them with various programs. You could also download a free copy of Quicktime from apple.com It will play many different forms of videos.

When you removed the card from the computer, did you: A. forget to use the "safely remove hardware" function B. delete the pics using the computer instead of the camera Either of these could cause your problem. If the pics are safely on your computer, I suggest you format the card in the camera.

Simple press it a little and it will then eject a bit so you can grasp it for removal.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it. The position nearest the contacts unlocks it. If the switch is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.
