I have been using Olympus Master 2.03 for a long time. I have the problem of it shutting down usually in edit mode. Is this problem fixed in OM2.2?
Remove the two screws on the right side of the camera (right as camera is facing away from you.)
Remove the screw from the top right side of the camera.
Remove two screws from left side of camera.
Remove the screw from the top left side of the camera.
Remove the screw that is just to the right of the viewfinder.
Pop up the flash.
Lift the top section of the casing off, with the following in mind... There are two spots where the casing interlocks: 1. Rear to the right of the viewfinder -- press in on that area to release it from the lower casing. 2. Front directly under the ME in MEGAPIXEL; press in on that as well.
Remove screw from rear side of tripod mount. (leave the front one)
CAREFULLY remove the screw from the viewfinder adjustment. The adjustment is very delicate and has two tiny plastic tabs that will shear off quite easily -- trust me because I broke mine. If you break yours, be sure to adjust it to the most convenient position (i.e. not macro) before reassembling.
REMOVE THE FLASH CARD!
At thie point, no screws impede the removal of the rear case. The flash card ejector switch, however, is a minor obstacle. It seems best to have it slid all the way to the left as you work the rear cover off (from right to left worked for me.)
Now follow the green ribbon cable from the Cancel/OK/4way switch up to the right of the zoom. Just to the right of the zoom, under that cable, is a screw hole that is more than likely EMPTY. It's not supposed to be. Find the tiny screw that goes in that hole. Either get rid of it, (not vital, IMHO) or if you want to put it back...
To replace the screw:
Remove the two screws holding the top LCD and power switch on.
Lift the rear of that assembly up to disengage its connector, and slide it back. Two LEDs protrude down from the front of it into the front casing, so be careful not to bend them.
Underneath is the socket for the ribbon for the OK/Cancel/4way. Slide it out. Now you have access to the screw hole.
Replace the screw.
Re-insert the ribbon. Make sure it is in all the way and straight.
Tile the top control board back into place, pressing it down into its socket.
At this point I inserted a battery and tested to make sure the rear and top controls still functioned. You may want to play it safe and not do this while all of the guts are exposed, but the risk is probably minimal. Do it at your own risk though.
Replace the two screws for the top control assembly.
Temporarily press the flash down and make sure the white switch at its rear is in the right place and won't get smashed when you reassemble!
Seat the compactflash ejector slide switch onto the bottom of the camera, making sure its points left, and that its two adjacent tabs straddle the metal tab on the CF slot. It's easiest to reassemble when it is slid left, so slide it there.
Replace the rear cover, tilting it on from left to right.
Insert a CF card and make sure the release switch works.
Make sure the hinge pin for the CF cover hasn't slid out, and that the cover snaps into place.
Replace its 2 long silver screws on right side of the rear cover.
Replace two shorter silver screws on left side of the rear cover.
Replace the longer silver tripod mount screw.
VERY CAREFULLY insert the viewfinder adjustment into the viewfinder, making sure its delicate tabs are in the slots of the viewfinder.
Reinstall the long black screw that holds it in place.
(If you break this, make sure to adjust the viewfinder to an optimal (infinity?) position before replacing the back cover.)
Replace the top cover while holding the flash release switch back.
Note the two points from earlier that snap together.
Test the flash release.
Replace the two screws on either side of the top cover and the one in the rear. These are all the same size.
