Bob posted the procedure to reset the epl-1 to factory default. Just put the camera to M when you are reseting it.

Those shots really look like they are EV +3 to +7.

I tried to check the images in PhotoME for exposure info, but no cigar - or EXIF that is. But the histogram is definitely slam, against the right side of the scale. I still don't quite get the uneven exposure though +3 ev might not completely wipe out an image but +7 - I feel would. Besides I have never seen a camera, that had more than a plus 3 EV adjustment.

the uneven exposure might be that the parts that are not as badly blown out were darker area of the frame.

But if all else fails, call olympus tech support tomorrow, they are very helpful and nice to deal with.

As Shoturtle mentioned, set your mode dial to Manual; press menu; all segments in the menu will be highlighted; scroll to reset and then press reset.
