    Have not used my camera much for the last while. Have been fighting for my health, much better now and went to use the OMD 5 and the shutter sticks aver about 5 minutes of use have to shut it off for about 10 minutes before it will work again.
    The camera has about 2500 shots taken with it. Any suggestions other than sending it in?

    Maybe the battery is no longer good? I have heard the camera tends to hang/close the shutter if the battery is very old

    Do you have access to another sample? Changing the battery is cheaper than sending in ...

    Thanks for the suggestion I have two other batteries to give it a try ( although they are of about the same age)

    Best of luck, and happy to see you are in better health. Let us know if the other batteries solve the problem. Are they all fully charged?

    New fully charged batteries didn't help. So off the camera goes for repair.
