Re: new OM-D -- broken?

This is what happened to me:

Hello All,
Just to share in case anyone else receives a DOA unit.
Mine came in today, after waiting forever.
Charged the battery, and guess what... neither EVF or LCD shows the image.

It would be similar as having the front cap of the lens on, it shows information as if I had a legacy lens, as it also fails to detect the lens.

Aperture has a "--" for aperture regardless of the lens, tested using the kit lens, 45 1.8, 20 1.7 and 25 1.4 (25 with 4/3 m4/3 adapter).
Also the touch screen is not responding.
Olympus support told me to send it back to the store.

So if anyone is also having issues, I guess it would be a good idea to post, as Olympus told me "That is very strange, this is the first complaint of this type we received", I would like to check that camera and see whats going on.

When I asked if the will send me a new one, he said, not sure depends, it could be repaired, so I'm sending it back to store, O don't want a repaired camera, I paid for a new one.
