    Hi, i have a shutter remote for the em5 and the remote when i press it, it will focus but, not take the picture when i press the button all the way. Is the remote not compatible or is there a setting?

    Try reseating the USB cable- that did it for me.

    I found one of the ebay remotes a bit rough in quality with the plug, so much so that I am reluctant to use it. I've had one camera with damage to the multi use/USB connector & hesitate to use a plug that might damage another camera. It just might be a bad connection because of the not so great quality compared to the Olympus made one.
