Olympus iS-5 stopped working after just 8 shots...
3 months ago

I recently bought a used Olympus iS-5 and was just beginning to test the camera out. Everything worked fine, I loaded the film, and started shooting a 24 exposure roll. Just 8 shots later, the camera suddenly stopped working. I could not figure out what went wrong, but no buttons would work at all. I had the camera rewind the film, and then I tried loading a new roll. However, this time I just got an "E" (error) message, as if the film was not properly loaded. Repeating (and wasting) two more rolls yielded the exact same results - the camera threw an error and refused to load the film. I loaded the film the exact same way as the first time (which was a success). Removing the batteries did not help. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?
