Green and orange lights keep blinking

The green and orange lights were blinking when you turn on the camera. the red arrow would be on and when you go to take a picture and hit the shutter button it won't take the pic. so i bought a new battery, fully charged it and put it in the camera. the green light was no longer flashing but the orange one just continuously kept blinking and the red arrow was still there. i went to take a pic and nothing when you hit the button. you see a green circle show up right next to the red arrow, so i went to turn the flash off and it would take the pic however, it was all dark since it needed the flash to go off in order to take the pic. i have been hearing mixed reviews about this camera style and the olympus cameras in general. has anyone had this happen to them. i don't want to spend money to send it to be repaired when it's gonna cost me the price to buy a new one. any recommendations?

Are you sure you finalized the firmware upgrade procedure according to the instructions? This sounds a little like you pulled the plug a little too soon... Have you done it according to these instructions: And kept the camera connected until the update was 100 % complete? If you did everything right, try reseting the camera - take the batteries out for the day, and see if it helps. if you're back to step one(the reason you did the upgrade), try the firmware upgrade again. If still it doesn't work contact olympus, and I hope you have a valid warranty. Good luck

SOURCE: camera memory card errors/computer doesn't recognize

Can you get a memory card reader that works for a Mac? If so then loading pic's to the 'puter through that route Flashing red and green lights have a meaning- what does the manual say?[Check the more comprehensive manual on the Software disk] You could buy[or borrow] another card- nothing wrong with having more that one. Also try the card in another camera and a fresh card in yours[Take it a photo shop to try this]

SOURCE: Olympus digital camera won't turn on

The type of batteries that you use will make a difference. You didn't specify what type of batteries that you've been using. If you haven't been using lithium batteries, I would try some of those. You can find them anywhere they sell batteries. They're the energizer e2 ones. Usually in a blue package. They're a little more expensive than the regular alkaline ones, but they're better for digital devices and they'll last a lot longer.

SOURCE: Olympus mju 410- Orange lamp flashing

I had this happen and fixed it by removing the battery and leaving it out overnight and making sure it was fully charged - the next day battery inserted and it was ok. Prior to inserting battery I opened shutter cover and help down shutter release to try to drain any residual power. - Worth a try.

I have a wd52525 the status light keeps blinking

There are 3 different LEDs on the front of this televison. The TIMER will blink green. The STATUS will blink orange and the LAMP will flash red or orange depending on if there is a failure or if the lamp timer is showing over 5000 hours.

If I answer your question directly and the status is blinking a steady orange light, then you have left the side filter cover or the front lamp cover off or they are loose.

Also holding the menu and device buttons together until the timer light blinks will reveal a code that will help in diagnosing your problem. Goodluck.

Is the projector receiving a source signal? if not it will power itself down after whatever time you have it set to do so when no signal is present.
Just an idea?
