E-PL5 records only black frames


My son's E-PL5 suddenly stopped working properly today. Live View, autofocus, shutter, everything seems to work properly, but when we look at the pictures they're just 100% black, regardless of whether we try JPG or RAW.

We've tried resetting the settings, using different memory cards, change lenses, take out the battery for a couple of minutes hoping things would reset, but so far there's no cure.

Does this seem familiar to anyone?
