Well, perhaps she didn't like that I took up with a new, sleek EP3, but she has stopped working. I called Oly -- their solution is "send it in." Flat rate repair is $168 + tax + shipping. I could get someone else's used one cheaper. Still, I'll send it in, just because they might give me some kind of repair discount on.... A new EPL3! I wanted the EP1 for a backup body, now I'll "have" to get a new EPL3! (or an XZ1 -- I'll have to think about this). For those who care -- the camera is still powering on, and it still shows the live view, but when the shutter triggers, it writes a black frame to the card. The Oly tech couldn't fix it over the phone. I tried taking the battery out and letting it sit a while. When I do that, it takes a good frame or two, then goes back to writing black. Odd behavior! If anyone has any ideas on this (or had a similar experience) please let me know. But it is a sad day for me. My trusty EP1 has failed. (anyone want to buy a dead EP1 for the body plate or parts? I'm keeping the caps and battery, though. I still might send it in first, and see what Oly says).
