Default Olympus e-450 wont take pictures

Hi..the camera worked fine the first year but now itīs becoming harder & harder to take the picture. It seems like it cant focus anymore even if its outside in daylight. Maybe i pressed some wrong button, i dunno?

any suggestions?

G'day okevolo

Firstly - welcome to Steve's ... there's lots of people here with lots of knowledge - and we all love our photography ... so we'll try to offer you some helpful advice

Your e450 Olympus SLR is / was a good & well made camera, though over the past couple of years, Olympus [just like every other camera maker] has been making more & more & better cameras as time goes on. But this does not help you with your questions !!

I presume that the battery is fully charged

Suggestions -
pop into the setup menu and select "factory reset" - this will return everything except date & time back to a known collection of settings

Try the camera again & let us know how it goes then & we'll see if we can come up with more thoughts

Others here will also probably offer you some suggestions as well

Can't add much to what Phil already said, but you should clean all your contacts on the camera and the lens. Both sets need to be clean and free of any dirt or corrosion. Also, be very careful when attaching the lens to the body, making sure that you are not touching the lens removal button. If that button is accidently slightly depressed when attaching the lens, it can allow the lens to twist a little too far, which could interfere with the full contact between the lens and the body, and that could affect the focusing. Good luck.

Also, this question should be posted further down the forums in the Olympus DSLR forum instead of the Olympus P&S.
