OM-D strange problem - screen turns black and unable to take photos
Aug 30, 2012

Have encountered a strange problem today. I was happily shooting with 40-150 and in the middle of focusing the whole frame turned black (for both the OVF and EVF), but still with all the info and focus rectangle visible, and I was unable to take any photos. At first I thought it was a problem with the lens fitting, so I have refitted it, but nothing changed. Tried to put panny 14mm, but didn't work. After shutting on and off the camer for 3 or 4 times, a slighty bent thick white line appeared on the right side of the frame. I have put the camera in the bag and went home.

At home I've tried to turn on, but only to see the white line. But after removing the lens, the whole frame went pure white (it was pretty dark in the home). I have turned the camera off, put the lens back on, turned on the camera and everything came back to normal.

Anybody with the similar experience?
