My beautiful Olympus stylus 600 was dropped into a small puddle of water for three seconds and appears to have absorbed a small amount of condensation under the LCD screen. The camera worked slightly right after the incident but has since not even worked to turn on or off. All the water was cleared out of the battery pack and memory card (not that there was much) so the only visible problem is the small beads of condensation in the lower left-hand corner of the LCD. Please tell me there's hope for my birthday present. :(

All depends on how much water is collecting. A lot of water indicated a leak from the ice maker. A small amount and it's probably a clogged condensate drain. Here's a YouTube video on a different brand showing a clogged drain, your may be similar (or not), but it might give you an idea as to where to look. Refrigerator dripping water inside FIX
Condensation is normal but window air conditioners bases must be tilted to the outside of the window so the condensation drains outside. The drain hole in the pan can plug with dirt overfilling the pan allowing the water to leak inside your home.
water in the fuel pump .on the bottom of the pump is a drain plug open it drain small amount of water.tighten it up again .now pump the fuel pump as hard as it will go .now get someone to turn over the engine .as you keep pumping .should then start up.
Without specialised test equipment, diagnosing faults on totally dead electronic devices is near impossible. Even with the right tools it can be difficult.
Unfortunately your camera is effectively now scrap: any kind of professional attention will cost more than the camera is worth and spare parts may not even be available. Your camera was designed to last around five years, so all that can be said is that it has failed a bit earlier than it should have. If your camera has ever been wet or has been covered in condensation (as may happen when moving from the cold outdoors to a warm house) or has ever been dropped then it will have shortened the lifespan.
If you are confident that your camera has never been wet/dropped then it may be worth complaining to Olympus. They may offer to examine the camera but will usually warn that if found to have been liquid/impact damaged then they will charge a fee and return the camera unrepaired to you. Otherwise they may choose to repair it (subject to spares availability) or may offer a discount on a replacement.
It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.
This camera can be very picky when it comes to the front lens cover... It's not a simple mechanism and has many small parts and gears involved. If the lens cover is dislodged it won't work smoothly, and if the case is dented it will not be able to move properly and this can cause lens problems.
If the lens was out when the camera was dropped, then it's possible the lens was damaged and not the lens cover. Sometimes you can tear down the lens, clean it and rebuild it and it will work smoothly again, sometimes this doesn't work and the lens needs to be replaced.
If you're comfortable opening the camera, first check out the lens with the front body section removed so nothing is blocking the lens cover. Does it work properly now? If not, then expect lens damage to be the issue.
