Re: Pro1 giving no live image when start up, please help.

The ultrasonic motor that drives the lens is known to be fragile. Luckily mine is doing well, but I read on this forum about people having similar issues.

Some pointed to dust entering the lens and causing friction, and there were also cases when motor simple broke down, because the camera was dropped, or even because the camera was powered up, but the lens was pressed onto something and could not extend.

Hopefully it's something less serious, but maybe you will have to send it in to servicing. Try asking Ben Hermann (search for his profile), he has a wast knowledge and is a Pro1 fan also.
