No flash Well, my Olympus 710 won't take pictures with the flash on. I don't know what happened, It will only take pictures with the flash turned off, and the flash charging light is always blinking. I didn't drop my camera. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

    Can't take a photo when flash mode is on.  Will only take a photo when flash mode is off.  Flash indicator light never stops blinking.

It seems that the flash is not charging. the only way to fix is to show it to some repairer.

HI-- I have just purchased an old Olympus Trip MD 35mm automatic camera, with in built flash. I think have correctly loaded the fillm and batteries, but it won't turn on...It won't take pictures...

Make sure that the batteries are good. If it does not work with known good batteries then you certainly have an issue with the camera electronics. Test to see if the on/off switch is any good.

Camera will not take pictures when the flash is on

You may have a weak battery. If the flash doesn't have enough power, it will continue to try to recharge thus preventing you from taking a picture. Turning it off allows the pic to be taken.

My camera won't take pics it just keeps flashing a red lightning bolt what is this

The red lightning is the flash trying to charge (probably a weak battery or an old one) and it won't snap a picture until it does.(which won't happen with a weak battery).

No Flash -- Olympus 710

This is actually a repair issue with the camera. The flash charging indicator switch needs to be replaced. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair policies and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Flash problems

Hey emeffem,
What is most likely causing this is that the flash is set to off which would be symbolized by a lightening bolt sign crossed out. Directions on how to turn it back on are on page 13 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you no longer have it. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
