    I just bought an EM10 and was enjoying using it on my trip. A couple hours ago i tried using it and it stopped working. When i turn it on, the plastic curtain goes up and down rapidly a few times and either remains closed or opened. The screen, buttons, and menus are unresponsive. The screen lights up a dull beige/grey. Nothing works. Ive removed the battery, lens, sd card. I would return it or go to a repair shop but im traveling in Europe and dont have any of that available where i am.

    Any one have any ideas on what i can do to be able to use the camera for the remainder of my trip? thanks

    This same exact thing happened to my E-M1 recently. It's out for warranty service now.

    Same thing happened to my E-M10 - had to send in for repairs. This happened in the first week!

    This sounds familiar.

    Have you tried putting in a different battery?

    Similar thing happened to my EM-10. It's at Olympus now awaiting repairs. I wonder if this is becoming a common problem.
