    Help!! My camera doesn't work. When I turn it on, none of the buttons work. I have a picture in the LCD, but no matter which dial I turn, or which button I press, I get nothing. I can't even turn it off - I have to take out the battery for it to shut down.
    Any ideas???????
    Thanks!!

    To paraphrase the great Python:

    The E-M1 is no more! It's ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet its maker! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace!

    Seriously - I hope you can get your camera sorted - but it does sound like it needs returning for repair.

    Similar/ same thing happened to me with my E-P5 and I was furious, see here:

    As you'll see, it was the damn memory card. Change the memory card, turn off the sleep settings and see what happens.

    Hang in there!
