  • sporadic image in lcd and view finder

    Jus got the em5 back from squaretrade via Olympus. (2 months without) Lcd had no image is why it went to the shop. Now with both my 12-40 and 40-150 lenses shows no image at certain pts in the zoom range. Camera info is still there and you can still view previous files. I thought maybe a bad contact. Your thoughts?

    Certainly seems to be the camera as you have tried different lenses.

    Does the screen blank at exactly the same points in the zoom range and at the same focal lengths using both lenses?

    Have you tried resetting the camera?

      Thanks for the reply Ian. Did the reset and the blank screen with info still happens randomly at different focal lengths. The cam is still functional, jus have to turn it off and on again until the "blank screen effect" occurs. Will call Olympus tech support on Monday.

        Camera LCD and Viewfinder went blank all of the time so decided to order another since I have $3k in lenses and sent the Body back to Olympus via SquareTrade. Will sell it when it is repaired. Got the Olympus extended warranty because they will expedite any warranty issues.

            Update, Square Trade sent a ck for the price I paid for the camera. Said it was not repairable. I had ordered my back up so hardly missed a shot ;D
