E 500 locks up when turned on


New Member
I have just brought a new E500...twin lense kit (Zuikon's)
I have apromble that seems to be fairly regular ??

when i switch on, the camara cleans the lense,flashes the card light,shows the info screen ect. I then go to take a picture but, it wont work....it locks up. the info in the eyepiece remains stuck...even if you switch off.....the only way to reset is to remove the battery !!!!
replace the baterry, switch on, and away she goes,as if nothing was wrong.??????
i thought it might be the flash recharging but i have switched on and left it foe 20 seconds, still locks up ??
once it is working.....it will go on & on & on untill i switch it off again ??
any Ideas.......
