Question about Olympus MJU 400 Digital Camera

Olympus mju 410- Orange lamp flashing

This is a similar model to the mju 400, My problem is that when I turn the camera on, the orange lamp keeps flashing, this means the flash is loading, but nothing seems to happen. The flash does not charge and I can not take pictures unless I cancel the flash. Obviously restricting the picture possibilities. I have contacted Oluympus but the only answer I got was a reapir price list 148€ +p/p..without even telling me what the problem may be!
It´s obvoius that this camera isn´t probably worth spending this amount for repairs. I would much appreciate any experience or reccommendations.ThanX

    Flash signal is red meaning it's inoperative. Only way to be able to take photos if is you elect to turn the flash off . . . . therefore camera only now good for outdoor good light shots. Have not contacted repair shop or Olympus as yet . . . in the process of seeing if others have had a similar problem (and hopefully piggyback off their experience)

    I have the same problem, orange light flashing and the flash is not operatable. The only way I can use the camera is to manually disable the flash.

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.

Telescoping lens opens but the view finder continues to flash an orange light and I can not push the button and take a picture. I have ordered a new battery to see if that helps because the camera is used...


Before trying the new battery, try cleaning the battery compartment contacts with a cotton swab dampened, not drenched, in rubbing alcohol. Blow dry the compartment and then try the new battery. Thanks, Dana

When I open the shutter door on the front it does not seem to switch on - the battery is charged - the green and orange light on the back flash and beep ???


2 thoughts. 1, with both green and orange lights flashing the manual indicates that that means that the battery is not charged. This site provided an answer to a similar question that suggested cleaning around the battery area [see Bill BS answer to Wendy]. 2, To you and Wendy, I had a similar problem and a call to Olympus suggested the likely problem was not battery related. When you open the slide, and if you press down on the cover, around where the "s" on olympus appears, that keeps the lens extended. Don't know why that is, or how to permanently fix, but it seemed to work.

Card errro


Sometimes the card can get a little bit of dirt on it which has caused this error message to appear on my camera.  Just take the card out and carefully wipe the metal contacts at the bottom with mentholated sprits or another cleaner.  This did the trick for me.  
It could be a card problem in which case I would see if the same message comes up when a different card is placed in.  
hope this helps

It is something that seems to be a problem with the Stylus 410s. Olympus will not repair them unless they are under warrenty, I've tried. My best advice, and what I am in the midst of myself (I have 2 of these with the same problem) is to file with the BBB. Perhaps if enough complaints come through, they will begin to fix the stylus 410 defect as they should. Good luck. =)
