I have an E-410, which has been excellent for some years however, it now fails to take picutres. The camera goes through all the rituals of taking a picture but the result is a frame that is totally black. The screen also has 'Hi light' in the lower right corner, which I do not remember ever seeing before.

Any one got any ideas or is an expensive trip to the relair shop?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Raymond

Hello and welcome to the forum

First thing to try is a "factory reset" then remove the battery for a day or so.
You will have to reset the date etc., but it can sometimes work.

Also use a different card.

Re: Raymond


Are the images totally black when you download them onto your PC/Mac? or is it just on the screen?

Also when in View Mode on the camera, try pressing the 'Info' button 1 or 2 times, does the image appear?
