    My sister has an EP3 that has recently stopped working. It makes a noise that sounds unusual right when you turn it on. My em1 does not make this noise. The sensor works and you can see an image on the lcd. When you press the shutter, the shutter does not move, the screen goes black, and the camera shuts off. Any ideas?

    Doesn't sound good.

    You could try viewing the error codes - see if it gives any indication of whats up -


    You could also try a factory reset if the menus are still accessible.

    Good luck!
