Re: Olympus D-535 Zoom camera
Look in the card slot in the side or around the edges of the opening to see if you can find a switch or little button or anything that could be stuck or broken. This is the sensor that tells the camera when it's open or not.

I had the "write protect" message on my Olimpus c-370 zoom for a while and I tried everything, including buy a new Xd card.
When the new card arrived I had the same problem, and I was giving up... then I tried the camera using "fresh charged" new batteries and it works!
Hope this can be useful.
By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order or print reservation that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

In your case though, I would try to turn it on with playback mode selected on startup, to prevent the zoom from extending. This way you will know if the problem is connected to the zoom, or other mechanisms.
In any case, if it's not a battery/battery door/card problem, you'll need to send it for repair, or find a shop that can handle it, and it's rarely a cheap repair.
resetting may help solving the problem. in order to reset your Olympus Digital Camera, please follow the instructions provided below:
1. Remove all cards, cables, etc.
2. Remove the lens cap or slide open the lens cover and turn the
camera "ON" in any of the record modes. Then remove the batteries.
3. let the camera sit for approx. 5 to 10 minutes
4. Re-insert the card and a fresh set of batteries or an AC adapter
5. Test the camera
I hope this will solve your problem.
The D-535Z uses two AA batteries, and Olympus includes alkalines in the box. Unfortunately those won't last long and will end up in the trash. So I recommend buying a four pack of NiMH rechargeables (plus a charger), which gives you a set for the camera plus a spare. Unfortunately Olympus doesn't publish any battery life statistics for the D-535, so I can't give you any exact numbers.
It depends a lot on how much you use the flash and LCD screen. Don't leave the screen on all the time, use it sparingly and you should find an increase in shot numbers.
