There is no reset or fix test. Just ensure that the battery is fully charged, and replace the battery. Replacing the batteries already reset the camera.
Ensure that you have selected Flash on the menu and shot a picture. If the flash does not start, then usually the small pcb that supplies power to the flash has a blown capacitor.
In that case call Olympus number listed on the owners manual. They will give you instructions to validate the warranty and get the camera repaired.

Regards.

Olympus FE-360...All of a sudden when I take a picture, the picture comes out way to bright. I tried turning the flash off and same problem...The picture is just a big flash


This might sound dumb, but are you sure the lens is clean of dirt or oil, this will cause that kind of effect. If not, how old is the camera? If it is under 1 Year, I can have it repaired for you under warranty, my fee would 35.00.

I have an Olympus FE-370. The USB cable no longer fits in the camera, it's like something is blocking it. It worked before. I don't want to force it. This camera is only 4 months old and we've only...


I need to know if the USB fits into the computer and the end that fits into the camera is a 4 pin or 6 pin firewire possibly? The pins could have been bent so slightly that it won't make a connection. They can be so frustrating so take your time and carefully make sure it goes in the right way. Hope this is helpfull.

My problem is the flash of my olympus fe-230 does not work even if it is in the automatics status. the red flash sign just pop up at the left side of the screen while capturing pictures. i already res


Have you tried to reset the camera back to factory defaults to see if it is maybe a setting that has the flash disabled? To reset the camera: go to Menu - left arrow to reset and press ok. Highlight yes and press ok. This will put the camera in factory default settings. See if the flash works now. If you see a red squiggly flash arrow blinking on the screen constantly, this is actually a repair issue and the camera would need to be serviced to replace the flash charging indicator switch. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus FE-270


Hi,
First check your warranty - you may be able to return it for repair under that - and yes it needs a repair. The metering system is now broken, The chances are you'll recieve a new one as it is more cost effective to them to do this. (keep the batteries)
