Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old
Was working great the day before. Turned on thought battery was dead, Bought new battery charger and battery lost old one recharged and attempted to use the camera would not work, Turn on beep a few times and go off. Like power saver.
It makes a beeping sound when you touch any function. Only get few seconds of menu screen and shows Blue screen with some sort of timer / clock / alarm images showing.
Attempted to reset on side failed.

I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.
If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.
The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion battery. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and they still work great. Good Luck
Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries. I hope this works for you.
my camera is doing the same thing... i will let me view pix but not take them =( loved the camera took it to maui and even went cliff diving with it.. worked fine until one day i took it snorkeling and a little water got in. worked for a while after that only the screen fogged up and now i have the problem of not being able to take photos
I have the same camera - and almost exactly the same problem. It was working fine one day, next day not.
I've done the battery thing - it's apparenty not the battery.
Actuall, I have it a good "whack" with my hand and got it to turn on once, but don't think that's really very good for it in the long run.
This camera is only about a year old - and I use it OFTEN.
