Help

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

Re: Help

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

Re: Help

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.
