Hi all:

New here and in search of assistance. I have a year old EM1 Mark II. I used the camera without issue on Friday, however, I failed to turn off the camera before it went into the bag. Today (Tuesday), I got the camera out and it was dead. I changed batteries in the camera and on the battery grip. However, now I flip it on, it powers up (clicks) the screen brightens and you can see through the view finder, then it shuts off.
I have updated the Firmware to V 3.5 and done a reset, however, I am still having issues.

I've not contacted Olympus yet as I wanted to see if I could get help here first.

My sincere thanks,


How were you able to update the firmware if the camera won't stay on?
