Question about Olympus Stylus 410 / ? 410 Digital Camera
Hello. Now, on a 2nd camera, my Stylus 410's flash stopped working; we accepted that it must have been something we had done with the first, it has happened to our 2nd camera, and I see that I am not alone. With the flash turned on, the camera will not take picutes. I understand that it has to do with the flash not charging properly. What I am wondering is how does this happen? I am sure that with the 1st camera, it was not dropped, as Olympus claimed. I am 110% positive with this camera, and with a little research have found that I am not the only one. How might I fix this? Does anyone know how much it could run? Thanks so much for your help. =)
Another no flash problem here. Camera is about 3 years old and it does the same thing as the others. I won't be buying another olympus.

I just joined the "My Flash Doesnt Work" club. We have had the camera for almost 4 years. My solution: buy a new camera.

I suggest filing with the Better Business Bureau. I (hope) that if enough people file complaints, they might do somethign about it. *sigh*
Good luck all, nice to know I am not crazy! :)

Nice to know I'm not alone. My orange light comes on as if it's charging, but no picture is taken (even if the light flashes green) unless the flash is turned off.
It's not quite three years....sigh

Don't buy anymore Olympus cameras if they don't want to acknowledge a design problem. Mine stopped working about 2 months ago, after I promised to take pictures at a baby shower. All the pictures are no good because I couldn't use the flash. That's my suggestion. Get a new, updated camera from a different company.

Unfortunately, I had the same problem with my 410. Just happened a few weeks ago. Does seem like a product defect.

No, I actually sent it to Olympus themselves. THEY claimed that there was a dent, and were going to charge to fix it. They claimed that it was dented, so the warrenty was voided... *sigh*

Well u can´t do much, it needs to have the board to be replaced. normally the repair centre just repair it, and if it is under warranty they will do it for free, probably the store was the one saying that u drop it to get some money.
