The problem you are describing is a problem with the flash charging indicator switch inside the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

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 $83 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.

Just to let you know I have got the same problem and I didn't find the answer. May be the flash light bulb is broken after an impact or so. Only thing I can think of...good luck! Sx

I have a Olympus FE-100. Everything works fine but it will not flash. Blinking red light. Blinking red lightening bolt. I have tried everything.


hi
blinking red light means camera is trying to charge flash circuitry. if you cancel flash mode, you can use taking picture. But if you want to repair, your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 75 depend on what they really want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!

Flash doesn't work


If there is a red blinking flash constantly blinking on the LCD screen of the camera this indicates a failure with the flash charging sensor in the camera. It has failed and needs to be replaced.

Red flashing lightning bolt on the screen


That is the flash charging indicator blinking constantly on the screen. Unfortunately the camera will need to be sent to Olympus for service as this is a switch inside the camera that needs to be replaced. I would call Olympus Customer Service for repair process and pricing information. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Flash problems


Hey emeffem,
What is most likely causing this is that the flash is set to off which would be symbolized by a lightening bolt sign crossed out. Directions on how to turn it back on are on page 13 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you no longer have it. I hope this helps!

Flash Problem


there is no chance you can fix it.. you need prof service to fix it. internal flash circuitry malfunction is present. try shooting in program mode or manual setting ( not using flash).

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. =)
