I thought I wouldn’t need to buy another camera for the next 5 years. Alas when turning the camera on today, barely 6 months after buying the camera, the image turns on in the flip out screen viewfinder as per normal. That’s it. No response to any buttons from there on. Turn the camera off and it doesn’t turn off, the only way to enable that is to manually take the battery out. It doesn’t change when I start this process again. I have paid for a useless box, barely 6 months’ old. Has anyone else encountered this and better still, found a fix? Doesn't sound promising, but I'd be delighted to be proved wrong. Very dissapointing, I can’t see the point of getting a replacement or other Olympus camera with this kind of junk craftmanship.
