    Hi guys

    I think my camera got screwed. I have an E-PM1 which I bought back in 2012. Some weeks ago it started to show a strange noise when I start it.

    The usual sound is a shutter-like sound when it's started and shut down. Now when the camera is powered on, it sounds like that noise those old compact cameras did when extending the lens, like a bzzzzz. When I shut it down I hear nothing.

    I'm suspecting IS issue, since IS icon is flashing on camera

    Did you guys have any similar issue?

    Yep. that's exactly what is happening to mine. My warranty is over unfortunately.

    I don't know about yours, but mine, aside from IS, works fine

    I will contact Olympus support to get an estimate on the work.
