Card Error! message on E-1


I'm getting an intermittent "Card Error!" on my E-1. It will turn on fine and I can shoot for a while but eventually, particularly after it goes to sleep, it won't work and the card error comes on the screen. Sometimes if I just turn it off and then on again it will resume working. Sometimes it takes several on-off cycles. I have changed memory cards and it doesn't make a difference and the cards all work fine on my E-520.

Is this a problem that others have experienced?

My guess is that it will be more costly to repair than just buying another one (I'm seeing some on eBay for $50-$60). I realize that things like this happen as electronics age but I do love the E-1.

Is there something I can do to fix it? Any thoughts or suggestions will be appreciated.

Regards, Conrad
