    I have an Olympus Stylus 500. Two winters ago I left it in my truck and I thought that the lens cover froze up. I would turn it on and the cover would only open up half way. So I sent it to Olympus for repairs. Well the same thing happened again this summer. Well I thought that some dirt had gotten in there to stop things up. So to save myself some money I took the front cover off. When I turned it on with the cover off it workd like it was supposed to. When I set the cover back on it did it again. I discovered that when you set the camera down on it's face it bends the thin metal in and stops up the works. I put some pressure on the inside of the face and reinstalled it. It now works like it supposed to.

    I paid $105.00 last time I sent it in plus postage. I now set the camers on it's base to prevent this happening again. I guess that you can say this is a lesson learned..

    Now if I could catch something and get a picture of it.
