SOURCE: Olympus FE-140 ok except that flash does not work

Make sure you try and reset the camera to the factory default settings. There may be a setting that you are using that has disabled the flash functionality. To reset the camera - have the camera in shooting mode - press the menu button - left arrow to reset and press ok - you will see reset yes or no - highlight yes and press ok - camera will be back in factory settings - see if flash is able to work now.

SOURCE: dropped my brand new olympus VG-140 on the ground

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.
And here's a 16 minute video summary of the info shown in the link. But note that the article link above goes into even greater detail than this video:

How can i fix my OLYMPUS 170 DIGICAM. It won't open and won't work also


See page 12. Using the computer it can take up to 10 hours to charge. I would remove the battery and charge in a separate charger. The Olympus cameras have been exceptionable for me. In the over 110K photos I have taken with mind I have gone through several batteries.

Caution it suggests not taking pictures with the AC adapter connected. However it says you can review.

Hope this has helped?

I have an Olympus VG-120. How do I physically update the firmware on my Olympus VG-120 camera? Thanks.


Do you have your user guide or owner's manual? Read that thoroughly and you will have no problems. If you don't, get one from the manufacturer - search their website and download.

Olympus camera got wet


Yes, there is hope. remove everything you can from it and leave all of the access panels open and then leave it in a warm dry place for a couple of days or a week. The problem is that you have turned it on, this means that there is a very real possibility that you have shorted something inside. Good luck.
