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 $78 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.

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

Dropped camera. Will not turn on. Sticking lens cover prior to drop. Olympus stylus 500


Most probably you already have a defective camera. The camera's internal components are sensitive to shocks especially the lens. If it's not turning, try to remove the battery first for 10 minutes. If it didn't turn on after you put it back in, more likely you need to send the unit to any camera repair center.

Flashing problem with Olympus stylus500


It sounds like you have a short in your camera. Could be from a drop or just from age. You can either take it into a service center or might just be easier to replace it since camera prices aren't to bad. Hope this helps.

Flash-Off Problem


Do you have the camera in the auto mode?
Did you check to make sure that the auto focus is not in the manual mode when the flash is turned off?

If the above does not comply, call the tech support for the camera.

There is also a possibity that there is a defect, or that the flash is part of the auto focus function.

Weatherproof


The Stylus 500 weatherproofing protection is equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IPX4. The camera will not be damaged by water splashed from any direction. The camera can be used outside in adverse weather conditions. If you are taking pictures when the camera is exposed to rain or snow, make sure that the optical components (lens, flash) are not covered with water. Water droplets on the lens may affect image quality. The Stylus 500 is designed to operate at ambient temperatures of 32?-104?F and relative humidity 30-90%. Please note that the camera is weatherproof, not waterproof, and cannot be immersed in water. Olympus will not assume any responsibility for any camera damage caused by water getting inside as a result of misuse by the user.
