I have an E-300, twin lens kit. For the last week or so my 14 - 45 mm
lens has been playing up. I thought it was me at first, maybe I
wasn't getting the settings right or something. However, today it
packed up working altogether.
When I press the shutter button the shutter won't open. If I press
the button half way to 'auto focus' it seems to try to operate the
motor, but then nothing. When I push the button all the way nothing
at all happens. This is the same regardless of the mode or settings.
If I put the 40 - 150 lens on, the camera and lens work perfectly.
Any ideas anyone?
I suspect I will have to send it back to Olympus, and pay a heavy
bill. I know the warranty has about another week or so to run, the
trouble is that this was a present, and the purchaser has since
passed away. I registered the kit with Olympus as soon as I got it,
but I don't think they'll take that as prove of purchase.
