    Hi Guys,

    I have this reoccurring problem with my EP3. Sometime it doesn't turn on. Sometimes I will need to press the power button long or press it over and over again to turn it on.

    But sometimes it power up instantly. Did you ever have this problem with your camera? Any fix? Or possible cause of this? :frown:

    Time to send it back to the source.

    I had a somewhat different problem with my E-PL5. After being off for an extended period (e.g., overnight), when first turning it on, depressing the shutter release to capture the first image would turn it back off without ever registering the image that it was supposed to be recording. It was back to B&H within 3 days.

    Thats too bad. I had it early last year and most probably out of waranty already. Hopefully I can find a place where they can fix it.
