Have you tried to reset the camera to the factory default settings? There may be a setting that has the flash disabled. To reset the camera: have the camera in shooting mode - press Menu - left arrow to reset and press Ok. You will see Reset Yes or No. Highlight Yes and press Ok. This will reset the camera to factory settings. It will not affect any images that have already been taken. See if the flash is able to fire now.

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 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 $73.85 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.
