Question about Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital Camera
I was using my camera fine three days before. I bought a new lens, Zuiko Digital 70-300mm. I attached as normal, went to turn on my camera and nothing happen. No screen information whatsoever. I removed the lens and reattached my 15 - 45mm Zuiko Digital Lens I was shooting with the day before and nothing again. I checked the battery and have plunty of charge. The unit didn't get wet, dropped or mis-handle in anyway. Does anyone have any suggestions. I think I'm going to take it in to the repair shop.
My camera is working again, but the problem is not completely solved. What I did was to put on the old lens, take out the battery then turn on the camera and finally put on the battery again. And now it works. But the problem with the new lens (Zuiko digital 40-150) continues.

Jucarca is exactly right about updating the software, but be forewarned that it will only work if you have the newest Olympus Master Software Update, Olympus Master 2. Olympus Master 1.1 will not be able to connect with the online server. Luckily, Olympus Master 2 is a quick and free download from the Olympus site.
Once you are sure you have Olympus Master 2 loaded, follow Jucarca's directions (above). Just completed the steps, and my new 300 lens now works fine.
