Re: What.....

I think I had the same problem as you... I found it was a power issue. I needed stronger batteries. Lithiums worked well.

Hi, I droped my SP-320 yesterday and now i can't turn it on. The red and green light is flashing. What does the flashing lights means? Joe

I have the same problem with flashing red and green light when I tried to turn on my Olympus SP-350.

I don't know what's wrong, so please let me know if you have any clue. I personally did not drop the cam, but someone else might and did not tell me :(

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures

The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

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.

The "camera ready" light starts out green when I turn on the camera, and then changes to blinking orange, and won't let metake a picture...fresh batteries don;t make a difference.

You can try to set all the menus to default, but this camera may need repair.
Make sure you have the right kind of batteries.
Putting in the wrong kind of batteries may cause errors.

Power is turned on, the orange light flashes one dozen times and then a ring tone is heard, then nothing.

I have Olympus FE-270 Digital Camera, whenever I switch on I always see the orange light. What is the cause? How to make it to get green light like others. Please help. Thanks

Weird problem. Camedia d-520 doesn't turn on. Blinks and Beeps.

I'm having the same problem with mine. Happens on rechargeables or brand new standard batteries as well. Very frustrating. I can't take more than 2 videos in a row without the dreaded orange/green lights flashing (low battery warning). Leaving it for 10-20 minutes and it works again, with the battery charge showing full.
