My Olympus OMD M5 Camera started to suddenly turn itself off a coupple of times before Christmas. To fix this i had to turn it off and on again, or re-insert the battery.

Last week, i saw a white flash while looking through the glass and the camera turned off. This time its not turning on again no matter what i do.

I tried switching to a different battery, i checked the battery connectors and i have tried a "hidden" factory reset method ( hold menu button while powering on ). It wont turn on.

Hi. The link you posted looks suspicious, so if you can please upload your video to youtube and repost it here.
