Question about Olympus Stylus 700 / 700 Digital Camera
I can't turn my camera on,I press the power button,it gives me a whirling noise,the lenses come out(but not all the way),the picture on the screen is blurry,and I can't make a shot,and after2 seconds the lenses come back in by itself.Then it does it again,without me even pressing any button!But I can still view my pictures.But I can't download them on computer,because it still displays an error message D: 5fo8 5e02,and the lenses start moving again.I don't know how to fix it.Please help me.Because I took pictures just yesterday and then it stopped working...
5e02 THIS FIX WORKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BY TRIAL AND ERROR I FIXED MY mju 700 SHOWING THE ABOVE ERROR
IF YOU PRESS AND HOLD THE ok/function BUTTON, AND TURN THE CAMERA ON AND OFF A FEW TIMES WHILST KEEPING THIS BUTTON DEPRESSED, IT SHOULD HOPEFULLY SORT ITSELF OUT?!
(NOT SURE IF IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE BUT MY DIAL WAS SET TO scn FOUND INBETWEEN guide & the wobbly hand.
I ONLY TURNED on/off/on AND IT FIXED THE ERROR, IT MAY TAKE MORE FOR YOU.....I'M NOT SURE AS MINE IS NOW FIXED!
IT WORKED FOR ME, HOPE THIS HELPS, GOOD LUCK!

BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!!!!!!!!! Caused by sand or dirt in lens cover machanism. Simple fix is to turn on camera while holding it with the lens pointing UP! Sonds simple but it works!

I was having the exact same problem with the exact same error codes on the blue background coming out on my screen. However, I suspect it's a memory card problem. not your camera. But try this out to make sure- remove your xD memory card, close the hatch and turn your camera on. When i did this, i found that my camera works fine. It uses the internal memory instead though, which in using 2048X1536 resolution gets me 18 photos. And amazingly, when i inserted my card again, the entire problem went away completely. It could be due to a tightened loose connection between the card and the camera. Let me know if this works for you as it did for me. -Shahril-

I had the same problem but this way fixed mine. i found if i used a bit of silicone spray lube around the edge of the lense, it should work its way into the mechanism, because i think mine was dry and now it works perfect. you might need to clean the lense after though!!!

If it is still under warranty send it back If it is not under warranty -by allmeasn look for a repair source Be warned however the likely cost is going to be pretty near the price of a replacement.

I had the same problem with Olympus Stylus 700 and tried some suggestions above:
Holding down the OK/Func button while switching on and off
Removing the memory card
In the end what fixed it was a combo of all things... I removed the memory card then while pressing (and keep pressed) the OK/Func button and holding camera facing lens up I blew into the lens area quite hard to dislodge any dirt and likely also providing a bit of lubrication with my breath (eeww) and voila it flicked back onto the SCN page and ready to take photos again... however then I turned it off and it came back on with error again so I repeated all that and it worked again.

I have exactly the same problem. Press the power button. While the lens is going in and out, open the battery cover. The lens should go out fully. Close the battery cover when prompted and you should be up and running. This is not a proper fix, and I don't know why it works, but hopefully it'll get you through the short term: You will need to do this every time you switch the camera on until someone comes up with a better solution.

SOURCE: I can't turn my camera
The camera may be faulty or it needs to be reset to the factory settings.
Try removing the battery leave it out for at least 1/2 hour, then replace the battery.
If it doesn't work then you need a new camera.
