Hi all,

I am quite screwed now. Just got a new XZ-1, and decided to itchy backside update firmware.

Accidentally disconnected while updating and now my new camera is bricked :( cannot turn on/charge or in fact anything. :(:(:(

Are there any ways to resolve it myself? Or die die have to bring to Oly service centre? Will they be able to help me on the spot?

I bought it from Amazon btw.

Thanks for the advices in advance.

It's only resetting the firmware, the service cantre will do it. Instead of wasting typing in this forum, u should just bring it down to the centre.
