I used my E-PL5 around two years.

However, it appeared a problem last week,

I cannot turn on my camera, when I tried to turn on it,

it emitted a shutter sound and it will automatically turn off the camera after a few

second, even the screen can show the menu, I cannot select anything at all.

Has anyone encountered this problem?

I guess it may be the shutter's motor problem, is there any method for me to repair

my camera except send it to Olympus?

Try removing the battery and leaving it for a few days. This will let the camera discharge and just may get it back to life. The time/date may need resetting.

If not then it's decision time... :(

Thank you for your reply.
I just remove the battery and I will report the result after a few days, hope that the camera can back to life:)

My EPL5 died in a similar way.

Cost 99 for a new shutter system from Olympus.

Actually thought it was worthwhile, as the camera is guarrenteed for 6 months and is "virtually" new. Very sellable if you decide to upgrade, which I did.

Couple of years ago m=now...........
