    Perhaps you should explain what you did try, as none of us were there to witness the event...

    Are you using the remote, or are you just pressing the shutter?

    I have the E-520 and it works on bulb for as long as I hold down the button. Can you explain what you're doing? We need a bit more detail so we can help...

    Could it be something to do with your bulb timer setting
    On my E-520 you can set it by
    menu>spanner 1>spanner E>Bulb Timer
