Question about Olympus EVOLT E-300 (Double Lens Kit) Digital Camera
My Olympus E-300 Digital SLR has started to store totally black images on the flash card. At first it was once in a while, now it is happening 3-5 shots in a row, with one good image in between. These images take up memory space on the flash card. We tried a different card, but same problem. Olympus has no answers.
Most likely the shutter "curtain" (a few pieces looking like sheet metal just behind the mirror, designed to protect the camera CCD from dust and damage due to too much light) is not opening. This will require servicing by Olympus, since you will have to take the camera apart to be able to reach this camera part. Unfortunately, this may be a pretty expensive repair.

Hello , I have the same problem, now with all shots. Looking to your answers I adjust on MENU elevating mirror 5 seconds to check shutter with lens removed and I see all times the shutter working OK, and surprise!, the pictures without lenses d ont be black. I try whit lens and they works again. May be a problem with dirty pins between body and lenses or soft bug ?.
Next time I will check with a older compatible lens.
