EPL6 Shuts off when taking a still photo

After shutter press it blacks out the monitor sounds like the shutter moves makes a grinding noise and then shuts off the power. It will still take and show movies!

I have left the battery out for 24 hours. Charged it then put it back in and it does the same thing.

Did a reset both basic and  the higher one.

Never lost the date setting even with the 24 hour batt out.

Oly suggest try a new battery, or shutter may be bad. Don't have a spare battery. Camera was used by someone who did not probably know how to maintain NMH battery.

Tryed all modes, scene, ASMP Iauto. Oly could not tell how to check battery with VOM.

Any thoughts?
