When you take pictures in AUTO, Portrait, Macro or Night scene mode, the built-in flash will automatically pop up in low-light or backlit conditions. If you want to control the flash pop-up, set this function to OFF.
1 Menu [AUTO POP UP]
2 Use control dial to select [ON] or [OFF].
3 Press the Ok
button.

If you are in any other mode the flash will not auto pop up.

    Internal flash not working on olympus e500


    The Xenon flash tube in modern strobes rarely 'burns out'. I would guess that a switch that is activated when the flash pops up is not working properly. More info can be found here: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/olympus-dslr/159660-e-500-built-flash-not-working.html

    Shutter button causes camera to turn off


    It is usually a battery strength issue. Try this, set the flash to "no flash" mode and try to take a shot. If it works with the flash set to "off", the batteries are probably not strong enough to power up the flash and shoot. If that doesn't work, try really, really GOOD batteries. Most of my customers with this problem solve the issue with Energizer Lithium AA batteries. We sell lots of these batteries, and it usually solves the problem.
