Will have another go at cleaning contacts. Also sounds like the AF or the IBIS is whirring away when the screen goes blank.

I have emailed the repair service dept and hope for an answer tomorrow. Pointed out I have a history of buying Olympus gear they can verify through my on-line registrations - but not expecting a miracle - but it is pretty poor that a lens only goes a year before cr*pping out. I have never really trusted the 14-42 design as it feels quite flimsy and vulnerable compared to every other 4/3 and M4/3 lens I have used.
