I'm using a new Olympus 0M-D E-M5ii and for some reason, after I take a photo, it appears completely black both in the playback mode and when viewing the image file on a computer.

Hi there,

This will happen if the mirror is stuck or is not lifting up on time when you press the shutter button;

or it can happen if the image sensor has become disconnected or is faulty.

First, a camera technician will need to check the internal mirror mechanism.

If it is working correctly, then they will check the sensor and its wiring.
