Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera
My camera wont take a picture, it does how ever do everything but put the pic an the card it just shows up as black image. You can view past images on the card.
Check for the obvious -- shutter speed, aperture, and ISO set appropriately to give you a well-exposed image, and lens caps off. If none of those are the problem, then there's a problem with the mirror, the shutter, or the sensor itself. You can carefully look inside the mirror box with the lens removed, and see if anything is blocking the motion of the mirror. If you don't see anything (or, honestly, if you do), take it to a trusted camera shop or call Olympus's repair center.

Had the same problem as above poster and found that when i removed the lens and looked at the mirror box was out of alignment.I used a small flat screwdrive on the plastic case around the mirror to gently but frimly put it back in alignment. camera works great. Thanks to hobbified for helping fixing my issue
