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).
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.
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.

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

off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Unable to transfer images
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 such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Olympus SP-350 will not power on anymore. Battery
not sure - but seems like you have a power on issue, so try to check into the battery bay and see if there's any dirty stuff or leak from battery or just make sure the contact is clear.
Using a meter to double check to know that the batteries are BOTH charged is advised. The Buzzing noise seem to indicate the motor is having problem extending the lens or the motor's gear is stripping hence making the noise?
