I had this problem and whacking the front of the camera against the palm of my hand a few times freed it up so it worked again.

Shutters on the lens won't fully open


Stuck automatic lens covers are fairly. But usually it's very easy to fix, without even opening the camera. See this link for troubleshooting steps for this problem.

This is exactly my problem.


Focus is stuck - could be sand or something in the focus gears. That's the weak spot for these lens. Contact your local Olympus service center or any other camera service center or me at [email protected]

Camera does not react


I quote: "A couple of days ago after using it when trying to see the pictures on the camera the LCD did not show anything. The lens reacted and even take pictures but nothing was visible on the LCD screen."

That means that there was a problem either with a LCD display or with ribbon cable.

Now:"I tried charging the battery and removing it from the camera, now the camera only does a bit sound when switching on but nothing else, the lens does not even come out."

That means that the ribbon cable had probably shorted, now the camera may be furtherly damaged.

The camera must be disassembled to access the LCD and fix the problem.
The repair must be done by an experienced technician, as to access the LCD you need to remove both covers.

Error-C1


Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).

Lens stuck


If the lens is not coming out, its stuck, or it wont completely open or close, that is the lens assembly, that needs to be repaired. You need to take it to somebody, that can either repair it or replace it for you. There is nothing that can be done, other than that......
