    Two years ago, my E-PL5 had this issue:

    Back then, I asked around but no one had an inkling why the body responded like that. I bought a new E-PL5, and 2 years ago, the same thing happened:

    I have tried resetting all settings to default, changing different lens, different modes, different cards/batteries and it still shows the same problem. May I know what exactly is wrong with the camera and how can I resolve it?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I haven't encountered that issue with mine. Perhaps contact Olympus support?

    they aren't willing to tell me the problem until i send for diagnostics, with $60 labour fee.

    just want to make sure it's nothing serious before i send it in.

    I had the same issue with my E-M10. It was the shutter sticking. Take off the lens and see if the shutter sticks closed. I sold my E-M10 for parts when that happened so I don't know the repair cost.
