    Many thanks for the response. Unfortunately, it didn't work in this case. We experimented with settings, though, and even with the camera set to mandatory flash, the flash doesn't work. (We did check with fresh batteries.)

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.

My problem is the flash of my olympus fe-230 does not work even if it is in the automatics status. the red flash sign just pop up at the left side of the screen while capturing pictures. i already res


Have you tried to reset the camera back to factory defaults to see if it is maybe a setting that has the flash disabled? To reset the camera: go to Menu - left arrow to reset and press ok. Highlight yes and press ok. This will put the camera in factory default settings. See if the flash works now. If you see a red squiggly flash arrow blinking on the screen constantly, this is actually a repair issue and the camera would need to be serviced to replace the flash charging indicator switch. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $73.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Flash stopped working


Have you tried to reset the camera to its factory defaults to see if it is a setting that is causing the flash not to fire? To reset the camera go to the menu left arrow to reset - highlight yes and press ok. This will set the camera back to factory settings. See if the flash fires now. If it does then, good. If not, then it is a repair issue with the flash assembly internally in the camera.

Ok button no go.


My FE-140 has the same problem. Sometime it works but most of time it doesn't. I think this is related to some firmware defects.

No flash


Yes the flash element could have burned out, or if you droped the camera it could have been damaged depending on the way it hit the ground. Sorry but I do not know how you would go about fixing it. Good Luck! I hope you get it fixed!!
