STuff like this happens all the time, its unfortunate that it happened to you, but, there is nothing you could have done to prevent it. This is what warranties are for.. just pack it up and send it back.

I'm an enthusiast and have been on the micro 4/3 format since the very beginning. I own a Lumix G1 and been patiently waiting for one of the "good" companies to add the features I want. Then Olympus did it with the OMD.

I waited almost 3 months for my order to be fulfilled from Amazon.

I was pretty excited when it arrived yesterday (USPS sat on it in my town for 2 days before delivering it).

I charged the battery for 4 hours, waiting for the light to go out, which it did, put it in the camera, then...


Charged again overnight.


(Of course I checked the manual carefully and made sure there was no plastic covering the battery terminals etc. etc.)

I am very, very disappointed.
With best regards,
