Hi, here is the error codes that I could find for you, it seems you are overloading the inverter. That means you cannot connect a kettle or other heavy load to the output. See all error codes below, hoep this helps.
Problem: The AC load will not operate, error code shows on digital
display and alarm is sounding.
Error Possible Cause Solution
E01 Low voltage shutdown because battery is discharged.
Recharge battery. Shorten cables or use heavier cables.
E02 Over-voltage shutdown because of high input voltage.
Verify the charging system is properly regulated and the battery
is 12 V nominal.
E03 The AC product(s) connected are rated at more than the
inverter's continuous power rating; overload shutdown has
occurred. Use a product with a power rating within the inverter's continuous power rating (see Table 3).
E04 The inverter has overheated due to poor ventilation.
Overheating shutdown has occurred.Turn inverter off and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Clear blocked fan or remove objects covering unit. Move the inverter to a cooler place. Reduce load if continuous
operation is required.
E05 The AC products connected have a surge power that exceeds
the Digital Inverter's surge capability or the AC products connected are short-circuited and shutdown has occurred.The products exceed the inverter's surge capability. Use a product with a starting surge power within the Digital Inverter's capability.
Did you try to remove the battery and than place it back?
By removing the battery, the camera resets.
If that does not work, don't apply force and never try to push back the lens, because you will damage the internal of the camera for sure.
Hi Mike, the bad news is that your camera is beyond any hope of economic repair.Your camera displays the absolute textbook symptoms of this fault.
It has suffered a ccd failure, these often occur on cameras which are five to six years old and replacement costs far more than the camera is worth (that's if you can get the spare part, and it's not a DIY job).
Your camera has the infamous Sony 5MP ccd fitted; huge numbers of these failed prematurely due to a manufacturing defect and there was a quiet recall program whereby affected cameras were repaired for free (but only if the customer complained), usually by Sony. Apart from a couple of Sony and Nikon models this process ended last September as by then almost all affected models had pased their design life expectancy. Failures after that are therefore no longer considered to be premature.
The problem which causes ccd's to fail is now well understood and manufacturing processes were improved by all manufacturers, but you still shouldn't expect ANY digital camera to last more than five years without failing for one reason or another. Even top of the line professional Nikon models only come with a measly two year warranty: I can buy a new car for that with a seven year warranty and the car has far more which can go wrong... Sadly, late model highly electronic AF 35mm film and all digital cameras just won't last as long as simpler models.
Sorry there's no prospect of a fix, but I hope that you found my reply to be of some use. If so, please rate my answer.
Are you using a genuine Olympus BLM-1 or a cheap "compatible" battery. It's possible that the original fault was caused by a worn out battery, but if you've bought a cheap compatible from places like eBay or Amazon then they're often very poor quality and frequently not of the stated charge capacity. Sometimes they're not even lithium batteries so your charger and camera won't work properly with them They're often so cheap that there is no effective quality control so your new battery may well be a faulty one. There is no way that the new battery would have been fully charged after just eight minutes: although they're usually supplied with a partial charge it's nowhere near a full charge.
Another possibility is that your Olympus BCM-2 charger is faulty.
Worst of all, you may simply have been sold a pup. If the eBay seller described the camera as being in good working order then I suggest you ask for a refund and return the camera. Although private sales are "as seen" they also have to meet the sellers description. If the seller won't play ball then you may be able to claim PayPal buyer protection if you used it to pay the seller.
Your camera is a five year old model now and way outside the warranty, in the UK perfectly good used examples sell for around £125 and this is likely to be less than the likely cost of any repairs if you send it to Olympus. You'll need to carefully weigh up what you've paid so far, what you're likely to have to additionally buy just to diagnose the fault correctly and what you can get if you just cut your losses and sell the camera as is.
If the vivitar 2x is not autofocus, then you will obviously give up 90% of the cameras focus, metering and flash functions. All 2x lenses loose 2 stops of light so the f2.8 lens will now be f 8. If that is acceptable then it may be worth the few dollars to get double the power for the lens
