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 doesn't work


If there is a red blinking flash constantly blinking on the LCD screen of the camera this indicates a failure with the flash charging sensor in the camera. It has failed and needs to be replaced.

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 $76 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.

What button do you use to turn off the flash on the olympis 710 digital camera?


Change your shooting mode to available light.

Your camera sets flash to auto when you set to auto mode. There are other modes where you can control the flash manually.

Flash


I am having the same problem. For this indicator, the manual states "Camera movement warning/flash charge". I'm guessing that the flash is no longer functioning. Note you can force the flash to OFF and camera will function without a flash.
