It's worse than I thought...

I lent one of my EM-5s to a family member for an extended holiday. It's been returned to me, with a detached rear top dial. So I started a thread to see if it would be OK simply to glue it on again ( https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4202431).

But I've now discovered that it's more serious than that.  I turned it on, and the view through the lens showed on the back screen for a second or two (while the lens aperture rattled).  Then it powered down.

I can't even get to any of the menus and the shutter won't fire.  I rather fear it's dead.

The family member offers no explanation.

A second-hand EM-1.1 looks a good option...
