It is something that seems to be a problem with the Stylus 410s. Olympus will not repair them unless they are under warrenty, I've tried. My best advice, and what I am in the midst of myself (I have 2 of these with the same problem) is to file with the BBB. Perhaps if enough complaints come through, they will begin to fix the stylus 410 defect as they should. Good luck. =)

There may be a problem with the flash circuit. until and unless flash is charget the camera won't work in photo mode, but, will work in video mode. and the red flashing indicator is also for uncharged flash.

How do i turn flash off on my olympus stylus 410 camera

Press cursor-right repeatedly to cycle through the various flash modes. The one you want is the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it. For full details see the "Using the flash" section in the reference manual (beginning on page 72 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download a copy from here.

Olympus E-410 won't make a second picture

Try this: remove the lens, clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. re-mount the lens. Remove the card and all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. Try it and let me know the results.

My memory card on the Stylus 410 digital is full. I have downloaded all photos and would like to erase the entire memory card. How?


Do you have a manual? Here is a link to the manual:

Olympus Stylus 410 Manual

You have to navigate through the menu to get to the ALL ERASE or FORMAT selection.


When you turn the camera ON and press OK, you will get the "first menu". Press the right arrow to enter the Mode Menu. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the above item. Once on ALL ERASE or FORMAT, press OK.

Also, here is a quick start guide:

Olympus 410 Quick Start Guide

Scroll down to Section 5 for instructions.

You can save the manuals to your hard drive for future use once opened.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I set the time delay on my olympus stylus 410?

Press down-arrow repeatedly and select the timer (looks like a one-handed clock). Press the shutter button to take the picture. The control lamp lights for about ten seconds, blinks for two, then the camera takes the picture.

Refer to the section "Using the self-timer" in the Reference Manual.

Instant shot

You must press the shutter button half-way to lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way for an almost instant picture.

Will not take picture

This has happened with 2 of our Stylus 410s. It has to do with the flash not working. If you turn off the flash, the picture will take. I am trying to figure out how to fix the flash portion myself...=)
