  • Actuations Menu

    Hey guys,

    Need some help, I'm trying to get into the actuations menu on my E3.. I know you are supposed to open the card door and then do the Menu/ok ect to get to it. However When I open the card door, I get no message pop up on screen to say its open! For some reason my camera is not registering the door is open! What can I do to correct this and find out what my actuations are?

    Regards!

    I've had the same, got my E-3 over a year ago and never been able to access the shutter count menu. Just tried again and I get the same as you, no 'door open' warning. Apparently the E-5 had the warning removed and has a slightly different procedure but that doesn't work either!!

        John Foster's site( http://www.biofos.com/cornucop/hidden.html ) is the place to find this information, not Wrotniak.

        You may have got your instructions from this site but did you notice this part which may be relevant?

        ". Press the following buttons in sequence: ARROW PAD up, down, left, right; then press the shutter button; then press the up button on the arrow pad. If nothing happens close the card door, wait a couple of seconds and re-open it and try again. Press the buttons firmly and hold them in for about a second. Press the shutter button well in. "

        Regards.

          Yep, tried all of that, pressing menu and ok together brings up the menu, press both again brings up the info screen and so on, ad nauseum!!

            I guess there must be a problem with the card door sensor not picking up that it is open. Is there a pin that could be sticking?

              Just tried that, the pin is free, guess it could be a dirty contact but have worked it a bit and still nothing. Not sure I feel brave enough to squirt switch cleaner into my treasured Oly!
