Question about Olympus OM-4TI 35mm SLR Camera
You don't say whether ou've tried using the reset button, which unlocks the mirror after lock up. As you look at the camera face on (shutter top left, rewind arm top right) then its about at 5pm on the lens mount. Whilst pressing that down, rotate the manual speeds band (found on the lens mount on the body) round to B, which should unlock the mirror.
If it does, it should work normally with new batteries in.

I've repaired lots of OM bodies with this problem, which seems to occur with age. Problem caused by excessive grease in the wind mechanism. Has to be taken apart, degreased, rebuilt and gears retimed. See my site for more info if interested. John, www.zuiko.com
