Hi Pete. Do you have ananswer?
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

The shutter is probably misaligned or the mechanics have been knocked out of place.

Unless you know your way around electronics and have the necessary tools you won't be able to fix this yourself.

There is nothing you can do but said send it to Olympus.

Hi, just checking in on your question. How did things turn out for you?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not taken it in for servicing yet. I was hoping that there was a way to reset it.
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

As it is a mechanical fault there is no reset method - the camera will need to be opened, and the shutter assembly diassembled, examined for any stuck or broken parts, then reassembled again.
