I have an old Olympus OMD EM5 5 Mark I that is in perfect condition. I use it to practise my photography and also to look cool.
I was attempting to take a macro shot; with the target object a bit too far, so I was moving in until it could focus.
The camera then froze with an image in the view finder. No button would work after this. So I decided to switch it off, and back on again.
Nothing, no sound, no lights, nothing. I tried removing the lens and the sd card and attempting to switch it on like that, no luck. I tried inserting and removing and re-inserting the battery, but no luck again. I went home, charged the battery overnight, and inserted in the morning. No luck either.
So I went into a camera store, they inserted a new battery to test, no luck. They inserted my battery into another camera, and that camera switched on, so definitely not the battery.
At this point it is most likely that sending the camera for repair would be a silly idea seeing that it would cost more than the camera is worth. So, is it possible to potentially repair it myself, if anyone has any idea where the problem may be? I mean, if I wreck the camera while trying to fix it there is no problem because its a sitting stone as it stands right now (useless).
Any ideas on what could have broke, if repairable, and how to do so?
