Checking the shutter count on my E-P1, page four, 'D', has 8903 on it. I understand that this is an error/damage code but I've no idea what it is. The camera seems to be working fine so I take it that it's not terminal. Can anyone shed some light on what it means?

Regards - Paul

Sorry Paul, I've no idea, but how do you check the shutter count on a Pen?
I've been trying to find out since I got it. ;)

The E5 is done the same way as the PEN's. Hope this is successful.

E5 Maintenance Menu

Here are the steps:

► Camera OFF
► Hold down MENU button and turn ON the camera
► Release MENU button and press MENU again to get to Menus
► Go to LCD Brightness Menu, that's in Spanner Menu and third item down.
► Press RIGHT to show screen adjusters
► Press INFO and then press OK and on my E-5 this shows on screen....
OLYMPUS E-5 0A 01 01 01
► Press in sequence UP/ DOWN/ LEFT/ RIGHT/ SHUTTER/ UP and Page 1 info appears

► Variously press RIGHT for Page 2, DOWN for Page 3, LEFT for Page 4 and UP again to get Page 1

What we are looking for is the information on Page 2, on my E-PL1 it shows.....
R 000275 [total shutter actuation count]
S 000020 [shot count with flash]
C 000000
U 000106 [turn on count which is ultrasonic wave cleaner count]
V 000000

B 000204 [seems to be total number of times shutter button is fully pressed for any reason]
L 000000

On Page 4 is D: damage code log, mine shows 0 and that is good.

Sorry Bill, I've only just spotted your reply. Anyway, Ross beat me to it.
