Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
I am using Olympus FE-170 Camera. When i am taking photo with flash it is not taking. One red flash symbol appers in screen. When i am taking photos without flash it is working preperly. I am using fully charged AA batterys Sony 1700
Please advise me.
It sounds to me like you are not waiting for the camera to charge the flash when turning the camera on or between shots. It seems you are using 1700mAh batteries and most modern digital cameras are better off using 2500mAh batteries. Your camera was released in September 2006 so it is considered "modern". With 1700mAh batteries, your flash (warm-up) recycle time time will be rather long or the amperage may not be enough to fully charge the flash unit. I highly recommend Duracell 2500mAh rechargeable batteries.
