Question about the E-10, not the E-M10
1 month ago

I had given my E-10 to my granddaughter many years ago, apparently long before she was ready to use it. She bought new batteries for the camera the other day, but the camera doesn't work.

When the camera is turned on, the camera makes a noise as though there was a motor running inside for about 5 seconds then it stops. Two error codes are displayed at different times. I believe one of them is "506" and the other is "Ob1". Neither of these codes are shown in the manual. There is also an orange light a little below the on-off switch which flashes for a few seconds after the camera is turned on.

Does anyone have any clues to what may be causing this problem?
