In Topic: Olympus EPL-1 - problems with dark LCD screen

If you have the User's Guide, the setting for Live View is on page 74. If you don't have the User's Guide, you can download it from the Olympus site. To get to the setting, MENU > gear > D. Scroll down to Live View and turn ON.

You have to set the LCD to Live View. The image will then always be similar to what you saw during the prefocus phase.

Nicool,

 

Since you are using a Nauticam housing, and the FO ends press in with rubber plugs, you might try using a Q-tip and making sure the FO ports on the housing are clean. You may have a bit of goop in there that is obstructing the light path when wet.

I have been wondering what you learned from Nauticam about this issue and what they suggest as a more long-term fix.

 

Any update?

 

I took the housing to Reef Photo the next day. The tech reseated the pin, perhaps pressing it a little further down into the block than I had. He said that if it did it again he'd look at replacing the assembly. I have not had a chance to test it out again. A report was sent to Nauticam, along with the picture.

 

It would be interesting to know how many others, besides KarenW and myself, have experienced this problem. If you have, please add a reply to this topic.

 

Also, no one has replied as to whether or not they see a little dab of black sealer on the top of the block that the pin is set into. In my 1st post I reported that I saw what appeared to be a bit of sealer on the elevated pin. I've considered putting a dot of Locktite over the pin hole.

Used the camera today. When I opened the housing to turn off the leak detector and take out the SD card I checked the pin. Yep, it had worked its way up again. Fortunately, I had no focusing problems, but the pin wasn't quite as high up as the last time. Tomorrow I'll see what the pros have to say about it.
