Just got an Olympus OM-11D refurb. When powered on there is a slight vibration and the viewfinder turns on with a dull gray. Nothing on the lcd screen, no buttons working.

Return the camera for a refund. It is not fit for purpose.

Any decision as to whether to accept an exchange or get a refund from the seller is for the OP and not the seller.

The obvious one - A full recharge of the battery. Then as above return it - its not been refurbished properly.

As above but also Google how to do a hard reset for that model, also try removing the battery overnight, try turning on without a lens attached.

Just had the same thing happen with my Omd em5. Jammed shutter, (apparently) its back with olympus as it is still under warranty. Really strange. But as suggested I would be taking it back.
