E520 stabilizer broken?
Mar 10, 2010

I noticed the other day that my E-520 doesn't "buzz" anymore when I turn it on. I used to be able to feel and hear a sort of "brrrrt" when the camera was doing the SSWF, but yesterday it didn't make any noise at all. However, the blue LED did flash.

Is there an easy way to tell if image stabilization is still working? Would the camera have a fault code stored somewhere, or is there an easy experiment to tell?

Is it common for the IS units to go bad?
