I just had the same exact problem. and i was able to figure it out. it means that you don't have the date and time set. as soon as i reset the time and date, the orange clock wasn't on the screen.

I'm using the sports mode and all my shots are blurry and orange


It may just be too dark for action photography. Try turning your ISO up to 1000+. Set your computer in Tv (Time Priority Mode). Use the top wheel to adjust the shutter time to something like 200 or greater. Keep an eye on the aperture value. If it starts flashing, you don't have enough light to support your settings.

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

How do you remove the white areas of a shot from flashing black when you look at the image?


What you're seeing is blown-out highlights. These are areas of your picture where the bright stuff (highlights) have been so overexposed (blown-out) that all detail has been lost. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but usually is. The proper fix is to reduce exposure slightly. Lost details in the dark areas are usually considered more acceptable than lost details in the bright areas.

If you simply don't want to see the blinking black/white parts of your picture, simply press up/down on the multiselector to select a different view of your picture.

Shutter button delay


The flash need to be fully charged before it would fire the shot.

In case the battery is old and supply power is not enough to boost the flash, it will await until the orange LED of flash indicator is no longer blinking, means ready to take picture with flash light.

Replace the new full battery will be better and faster to take shot with flash enable.

You can turn the LCD brightness up by using the "monitor" setting. Either that or increase the ISO setting.
