I have an Olympus FE 220 7.1 MG Pix that is frozen & not responding can you help???

I have an Olympus FE 220 7.1 Pix that has not been exposed to ANY damaging elements but now the camera is not working??? The lens is frozen & it will not respond to ANY commands (power,downloading,lcd etc...) I of course do not feel it is worth the $$$ to have it repaired so I thought I might TRY to do it myself (IF I can.) Any advice? Be Nice.

Take it apart and make sure there is no sand or dirt in the lens. It easy.

See,this is why I Have 2 fix it or chalk it up as the Gods teaching me a lesson...
Call the manufacturer's technical support and get them to go through a troubleshooting process with you. But first... remove the battery. Wait one full minute. Replace the battery and try to turn it on.

I have called the tech support & they want 2 have me send it to them to get fixed. Problem is that I have explicit pics on my camera from my recent vaca w/husband that I do NOT want in the hands of a techie. So, I wanted 2 TRY to fix it myself.
They're not on a removable memory card?

No, I always used the memory that came w/the camera.
yikes! This is a conundrum.

Does it show any signs of being powered-up? If there's no sign of 'life' what checks have you made on the batteries? L
