Olympus E510, Flash Flicker

This was posted May 23,2008 by JP.  I have EXACTLY the same problem with my Olympus E510 and really need a solution. "I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying." Thanks, Dave

If you are in a low lit area with the camera dial set to Auto the flash will do a strobing type of flash trying to help allow more light into the scene. This is called the AF illuminator function. To just go ahead and take the image, put the camera dial to P (program Auto) go to Menu - go to Wrench 1 tab - then right arrow over and then down arrow to AF Illum - right arrow and turn this function from On to Off and then take the image in the P mode setting. No flash flicker should occur.

There is nothing happening when the camera is switched on. The battery is fine.

I have an olympus e510.when i take pics inside or in darker areas the flash goes off alot.how can i fix this


That's because you are using auto focus. That system needs light to actually focus. When it's lacking enough light it uses the build in flash to create enough contrast to focus the objective.
Solutions :
- change to manual focus (mf)
- mount a external flash: then a different method to focus is used
- use a small pocket lamp (the light it produces fades away in the flash)

How much would it cost to repair a flash on a


there are 3 possibilities : 1. the micro contact on the back of pop up flash is dead 2. a hi voltage coil is bun out 3. a transistor is burned out.
In all that cases I charge 15 to 25 USD but the shipping cost to Romania is to expensive if you are outside of UE. Check your post office the shipping cost and if you think is worth to repair the camera , contact me to dragos_adrian_ro@yahoo.com

Just purchased this camera but there is no software or manual with it. Is there a site to download the software?


Here is a link to the driver download that you will need. Download and install on your computer.

Here is the other software (which you do not really need). As long as you install the drivers, you can use any software that you prefer to edit photos, etc.

Olympus Evolt 510 LCD Issue.


I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying.

If you can be some assistance I would deeply appreciate it.

Best,

Continuos timed exposures


You may need to have the camera plugged into the computer and operated by the software that came with it. It might have a feature there called intervalometer.
