Technician's Assistant: How old is your E-500?

Years.. plus 5 probably

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your E-500?

Nothing i just have tried turning on and off .. most of the time just didnt use the settings or buttons.. which is frustrating

Over time, the function dials and buttons will stop working properly.

This is usually due to contamination accumulating under the dials and buttons.

A local electronics repair technician will be able to disassemble the camera and clean underneath the buttons using electronic contact cleaner to restore them to normal working order again.
