Somewhat timely - as my XZ1 just jammed up.

Lens will not come come out on power-up and camera thinks the lens cap is holding it shut. I had seen this happen once before, but it recovered. Don't know what happened this time. It's a factory reconditioned unit, so the warranty was only 90 days.

I have taken apart cameras and have even been successful in cleaning one where the power switch got full of lint, and replaced a broken LCD on another. However, the XZ1 is less than a year old to me, and I like it too much to potentially destroy it. In the USA, Olympus has a flat rate of $118 USD for repair. I cannot buy another camera this good for that. I sent it for repair.
