View Full Version : HELP! My E-P1 Viewfinder has stopped working

21st September 2010, 03:58 PM

I upgraded my camera firmware to version 1.5 and now when I take a picture my view screen does not operate. It works when the camera is connected to transfer any shots on camera but that is it. Is there any way of resetting the camera without using the viewscreen?

You don't seem to be getting much of a response to your question!

Are you sure there is firmware upgrade 1.5? I updated my E-P1 to 1.4 which, according to the Olympus website is the latest.

I can only suggest doing a reset to factory original settings, but I am not sure from your message whether you are able to open the Menu screen or not..

Hi, have you pressed the button on the viewfinder, you can swop where you view the image. Hope this helps

The E-P1 is not compatible with the VF-2 viewfinder, only the E-P2 and E-PL1.

I think we need a re-boot of the details here!
