Re: Olympus EM-10 Mark II Black Screen

Oops. This seemed to happen to me late last night. I turned it on, and the screen was blank but backlit, even though the cap was off my 45/1.8. The IBIS was making a very weird noise. Turned it off, removed battery, tried again. Same thing. After the third try, I noticed that the screen had symbols for video on it (I don't shoot video on this camera). I then saw that the mode dial was in an intermediate position half way between Manual mode (where I'd last used it) and Movie mode. It worked again after I moved the dial - not sure whether this was a coincidence or not. 
I've owned the camera about 9 days and shot around 1100 shots on it. It had around 7000 on it when I bought it. Its battery is dated 2017.
