    Hey all,

    So this morning I dropped my e-pl5 on the floor. Everything seemed fine at first, but now when I turn it on, the image stabilisation seems to reset itself each time. And the "IS-1" that's on the right hand side of the screen is flashing orange.

    My assumption is the IS has stopped working. Can anyone confirm this or possible even a fix?

    I never found the E-PL5's IBIS particularly effective TBH. So long as the camera is still taking sharp shots, I wouldn't be in a hurry to get it fixed!

    Thanks for your replies. Won't be trying to fix it anytime soon I think. Fixing through Olympus seems too much of a hassle and DIY seems too complicated for me. Cheers for your help though! Really wish I hadn't dropped it in the first place....
