is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take
the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you
need any assistance.
The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

TURNS OFF AFTER 2 SECONDS. I HAVE REPLACED
One quick thing to try would be to use a different SD card, I can see a scenario in which the camera tries to start up - sees a invalid card or a improper format and fails.
Otherwise...try plugging it in your computer via USB. or to another power outlet using a compatible power cable. If it starts and allows you to access the menu, try a factory reset and then try using the battery power again.
Sometimes cameras are very picky about the "Type" of battery they use - there are several. Try a lithium set, or try a NiMH set - just don't mix them.

CAMERA SAYS CARD LOCKED, HOW
Take a look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I am trying to install
I don't think you need the software to load the pictures. Just link your camera to your
Computer. Your computer should recognize the camera and begin the upload process without
the software. Just follow the prompts

How to download pictures for
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Trying to install samsung digimax
The camera is probably supported by default in Windows 7.
To find out if this is the case, you should try using Picasa to download the pictures off of your camera.
Picasa is a free download from Google and has many cutting-edge features for picture management. I think that you'll like it.
- Download Picasa from their web site (click here) to your Desktop
- Once the Picasa file has completed downloading, Open the file and follow the directions displayed.
- Once you have Picasa installed, connect your Olympus camera. Picasa will recognize that you have connected the camera and ask you how you want to proceed.
- Have Picasa copy the images from your camera
- You can then use Picasa to handle the photos from your camera.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

Every time i try to take a picture "card locked
SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
If that doesn't work, try another card.

Cant download pics from camera to computer
I am not sure, but you could try. Kodak Easyware software can download pictures from many digital cameras to PC. Go to Kodak.com and select 'SUPPORT'. Then click "Kodak Easyshare Software - Windows Operating System". Download and install the software in your PC. Then use it to download the pictures. It is free and easy to use.
