All,

Looks like I got bit by the Oly QA issues.. The on/off switch isn't playing ball on my "out of warrantee" M10 mark 1. It started to be slightly intermittent a while back but now doesn't turn the camera on at all.. Changed battery with know charged battery.... changed and reseated lenses... cycled the on off switch.. No joy..

SO sorry that is happening to you, most disconcerting! 

1) has anyone had luck with contact cleaner on an OM-D E-M10 mark 1?

I would be VERY careful doing that - unless you can isolate the switch.  It does seem logical to try, but with GREAT care and a very minimum of fluid, with fear and trembling.

2) any clue on repair cost at Oly?

Ask them, they have a set minimum.

3) has anyone been able to talk Oly into a heavy discount on a new body if the repair cost is high vs the body purchase price?

You can but TRY!!!  What is to lose?

Hookum...

PLEASE let us know how this goes........... Jack Winberg
