Sorry if this is in the wrong area but could not find a general help area.
I have somehow locked the aperture settings on my e500 and do not know how to unlock it. The camera comes on but whatever setting I use it will not focus because the aperture shows --.-- and I can not change it. I have used the custom reset on the menu but to no avail. Any assistance would be great.
thank you
Bryn

Sorry it is now sorted I removed the battery while the camera was turned on waited a couple of minutes then re-inserted the battery and everything was fine

Sounds like lens/body communications - worth checking the lens is properly seated on the body and that the contacts are clean.

Nick, you beat me to it :)

Make sure the lens is rotated fully in its mount and that the electrical contacts are clean :)

One thing to remember when fitting the lens DON'T press the lens release button - apparently the lens can slightly over rotate and can cause this fault - Just rotate the lens till it clicks in place.
