Need Help with Olympus Pen EE3

    Hi there!
    I bought a Olympus pen ee3 a couple of months ago and have been trying to figure out how to use it. I read the manual and everything, but just can't figure out how to wind the camera properly. I was able to successfully wind at one point and even got the film counter to go up to 1. But afterwards, I don't know if I did something wrong or something else, because now I can no longer move the black winder to the rightand when I press down the shoot button, it doesn't make a clicking sound (it makes a sound but not the sound it makes when it takes an actual photo). Additionally, the small black button on the bottom of the camera body is pushed in. As a result, I am unable to wind the camera and get the counter to 1, so that I can actually shoot some pictures.

    Can anybody help me figure out a solution?

    The small black button on the bottom is the rewind button, which you press to rewind the film back into the cassette after shooting. It would appear to be stuck in, which is disabling the wind-on. It sounds like a faulty spring inside the camera. It may not be worth getting it fixed, but you may be able to pull it out manually.

    Andy 0 and balami like this.

    Hello Claire and WELCOME to the forum. As suggested, the spring behind the little black button sounds like it's stuck. If you can get it open, you may be able to shift it or loosen it.
