Why is my camera not switching between modes (M, S, A, P, AUTO, etc.)

It seems that my mode dial on the left-hand side my Olympus OM-D EM-10 isn't working.

It's concerning as I am unable to put the camera into video mode or the other functions available, as it is stuck on Manual mode even when I turn the dials to another setting.

Anyone have suggestions as to what the problem is and how I could go about fixing it?

I also had the same problem TWICE. I tried everything there was to try, reset my settings, change the battery, the sd card, and nothing worked. Then one day without me having done anything, it came back.

Now this is the second time that this happens to me and the problem persists. But now I know exactly when this does happen.

It happens when you tilt the screen and use the flash at the same time. Not always, but on occasion. That's what happened to me on both times it did this.

I think the sensors that control the flash and the modes on the OM-D are neighbors and on the top left at the back of the LCD screen. My assumption is that there might be a problem when some pressure is applied there while tilt the LCD screen. To get rid of the problem, I try to tilt the LCD while using the flash thinking that the problem will go away (and afterwards, if the problem fixes itself, I would avoid doing that). It din't work for me so far - maybe it could work for you.

If anybody has a solution, a fix for this problem, I would be much obliged.

Thank you!

I have the same issue and can confirm it started while I had my flash up and tilted the LCD screen. I have not gained the capability to change modes yet and am still stuck.

My theory is that it is related to the lens. Have you tried different lenses?

Changing lens does not change the problem. I think Olympus knows that they have some design flaws (in some of the first series) because of the large number of cases it happens. It even occured in the OM-5 quite a few times. Funny, the problem does not seem to happen in the later versions of both the OM-5 and the OM-10. They surely did make a few corrections. If that type of design flaws happened in a car, there would be a recall even if the warranty has expired. When you have similar problems with camera manufacturers, you have to send it to a repair dealer affiliated with the manufacturer, or directly to the manufacturer customer services, and you will have to pay if the warranty has expired. They surely will not be the ones who will tell you that there were flaws in some of their series. They rather want you to buy their latest models.
