    Maybe another member has experienced this problem: the LCD screen on my Epl5 shuts down on it's own, normally when it's closed from the waist-level position. It's out of guarantee so is it for the rubbish bin or is it worth repairing? Thanks in advance.

    Depends on the cost of repair. Mine went dark It was probably a bad ribbon cable. An EPL7 with Wifi would have been nice, but that only comes in black in the USA. I like my white EPL5 so I had it fixed. Well, that was a silly rationale, but I don't like to toss good things on the rubbish heap if they can be repaired.

    Thanks Harry. I was looking at the ribbon cable last night and speculating. Better ring the menders I guess.
