Is the image diisplayed with the black line in both the rear LCD and also in the viewfinder?

Have you reset the camera to the default settings?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no, its not in viewfinder and only in lcd when photo is taken, tried resetting but no good

Expert:  Russell A. replied 2 years ago.
Unfortunately, this is not a settings issue. Because the viewfinder and the rear display both use the same electronic signal, a setting error would show the same in both places. The LCD display is failing. A replacement is available at the link below Or you can contact Olympus at the link below to have it replaced. Please keep in mind that my diagnosis & solutions provided are directly dependent on the accuracy of your description of the problem. As with any "do it yourself" fixes, success is a "team effort", since I can't see or touch the camera, and relies on the customer's manual dexterity and ability to follow the instructions well.If you require additional information, please use the Reply to EXPERT to contact me.
