Possible that the switch on micro switch which triggers from the slide cover is damaged and so does not switch on. You might need to remvoe to find this fault and replace the switch, set the alignment once again or refix the switch .
Hello ..Yes please make sure your batteries are fully charged..If battery is charged and still shuts down..There is a good chance lens was hit or bumped.When lenses are bumped the camera will try to extend lens upon power up as part of cycle.If camera detect problem with lens not opening..Then it will shut down...
Well, I just looked at one, it is not easy to get to the front cover. Everything is removed from the back of the camera. The display, both circuit boards and the battery compartment have to be removed first. You may do better locating another camera, eBay is always a good start.
The switch that looks if the lens cover is opened is broken, you will have to ask a repaircenter to replace the switch for you, as the camera won't function without it.
the switch is soldered on to a flex cable, thats quite difficult to solder by yourself.
There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc.
The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working.
Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.
if you open up your casing you will find that almost dead center on the front PCB, just to the right of the battery at the top of the empty battery area there is a box. possibly with some plastic fragment that is broken off. if you touch inside this box w/ something conductive it will think the lens is open. You can either fix this area or permanently solder it so it thinks it is always open. You can still turn it off using the button on the side of the camera
