Try doing a complete reset - this should return all settings to the factory options.

white balance can only be manually configured on "PSM" modes only, the other modes set the white balance automatically .

Olympus cameras have an "all reset" function that can be toggled on or off in the menu. If "on", all settings are restored to default on boot up, if "off" then the last setting are kept on boot up. If the settings are supposed to be kept be design,but are not, then the capacitor or small battery on the main board needs to be replaced. Not user replaceable, usually soldered on or socketed but no simple access.

Assuming you have new batteries and the camera lens cover is opening when turned on. Try switching to any mode other than automatic, turn off the flash, and press the shutter button. Many cameras have a safety feature that prevents the flash capacitor from charging if the case is opened. This is to lessen the chance of electric shock. They usually use one or two of the screws along the perimeter of the camera to complete a circuit that lets the processor know that the case is closed. Verify that all the screws are in place along the perimeter of your camera, and that there are no gaps along the perimeter seams. If you're missing a screw, try using one of the others to replace it.
If they're all there, next thing to check is the batteries. The brand that you're using may have reached its shelf life, or just may not have sufficient power to charge the flash capacitor. Try a better brand, or better yet rechargeable NiMH batteries.
If the above didn't help, then the flash tube or its circuit is probably at fault. In this case, would then recommend professional repair. This repair is somewhat difficult, requires some soldering, has some danger of electrical shock, and goes beyond what I'd like to describe here

Testimonial: "Many thanks, the camera is fairly new but just out of warranty. I have tried all your suggestions but still no luck. Off to he repair shop!"
Is this a card that has worked before and now doesn't? Do other card(s) work in the unit? If a card is attempted to be installed backward, it can damage the internal connections and make the card slot inoperative. Also, there are restrictions on the type, size, and speed of cards that can be used (identified) within the device. Here is a link to the manual; check page 20 of the technical notes and index (page 230 of the pdf).
