E-510 USB Problems


I have encountered a problem in the last couple of days and wonder if I am alone or if someone has come across this before.

The other day I was taking some images using my Ownuser Grip (E51R). I then tried to hook up my USB cable to the camera and noticed that I did not get the USB menu on the camera. I then went into Lightroom and tried to import manually and Lightroom could not see the camera.

I took the cable in and out a few times, changed the USB setting to "storage" and tried that with no success then put it back to "Auto". Eventually it just seemed to work. I noticed that while the menu would not come up that when I inadvertently pressed the shutter button the camera fired off shots repeatedly until I pulled the USB cable out?

Since then I have not been able to use my Ownuser Grip or my wired remote (non Olympus). However my USB to computer connection works every time, i.e. camera goes to USB option menu. None of my connectors other than the Ownuser Grip actually seem very snug in the connector making me thing it was a connector problem. However given the USB connector to the laptop is the most loose I cannot help but think it could be a setting in the camera that is not recognising remote triggers which effectively is what the Ownuser Grip is along with my actual wired remote trigger.

Has anyone any knowledge of a setting that would cause this? I have tried it with the trigger setting at remote and normal in the menu's. Both the grip and the trigger have worked perfectly well up until now. Is there a master reset on the camera back to factory settings anywhere?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and thanks for taking the time to read my post.
