Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

How do I reset?

My dear sweet hubby took the E-500 on a flight and now the flash doesn't work in ANY mode. I've looked all through the manual but cannot find a master reset. I'm fairly certain he just hit the wrong button and a reset would fix it. When I go to the first screen that says reset - it is blacked out and I cannot access it. Any ideas on how to get this flash working? Even when I set it to manual full-on flash, I still get nada.

    the pop-pup Flash of my e-500 is not working I hear the noise that sounds when flashing to detect the subject and I can see some sparkling electric in the middle right of the torch, and sometimes trying the torch make a flash but is week.



    I already clean up, the battery is already charged, and I'm buying a FL-36r, too make the shoots. but I need to know if this is fixable.

It sounds like the strobe is not making good contact with the connection on the camera. Check to see if the pins on the camera aren't covered with crap and the pins on the bottom of the flash aren't bent or broken.

Good Luck.

How do i get the flashed turned on


First, check to make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the SD card slot. Slide the switch away from the flower toward the mountain to take it out of macro mode. The flash won't fire in macro mode.

Then, if the flash still doesn't fire, take a look at the flash mode. Press the up-arrow button to bring up the flash menu. If it's currently set in the lightning-bolt-in-a-circle-with-a-slash-through-it symbol, you've got the flash turned off. Set it to the lightning-bolt-and-"A" for automatic flash or the lightning-bolt for forced flash.

If the flash still doesn't fire, then it's broken.

1. The best thing to do is to factory reset the camera to be sure everything
is in the default setting. Look in the manual or menu to RESET the camera.
2. If this does not work, you can try is to remove the battery and wait a day,
then put the battery into the camera again and recheck.
3. If that does not help either, your camera might need repair/maintenance.

Running in TTL mode with Nikon D200, flash EF-500 DG ST NAd, doesn't work. In manual mode everything runs well.


this flash is not compatible with the d200. i had one and sent it back to sigma, they upgraded the software in the flash for free. now it works in all modes, it needs to be iTTL to work on the nikon d200 the NAd version is not iTTL.

You can connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi, GPRS, Dial-up, or Work connections(such as VPN and proxy connections). If you are encountering problems :
.Open the Comm Manager and make sure Flight Mode (or Airplane Mode) is turned off.
.Make sure the connection method settings are correct before accessing the Internet.
.Make sure the connections have been activated (e.g. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi etc.).

No network coverage/can't turn off flight mode


Sounds like your phone is stuck in flight mode for some reason. Have you tried a Master Reset (you will lose all your personal data if you do this).

Flash-Off Problem


Do you have the camera in the auto mode?
Did you check to make sure that the auto focus is not in the manual mode when the flash is turned off?

If the above does not comply, call the tech support for the camera.

There is also a possibity that there is a defect, or that the flash is part of the auto focus function.

You can Hard Reset the phone by either of two methods. Start/Settings/Clear Memory, or power on while holding both left and right softkeys down.

This resets and reloads the phone software system its ROM and you will lose any and all personal data and apps you put on it since receiving it. Back up all you can before hard resetting.

Slow taking pic, flash flashes multiple times while lenses acts like it is trying to focus


The evolt cameras use the flash bursts as a "autofocus help". Try to find points with high contrast or edges to point one of the three autofocus points at (you see these points while looking through the viewfinder and they flash red as soon as the camera is focused).

So, flash bursts basically mean "too low light" some other situation which is hard for the camera to focus. In such situations, try to switch to MF mode (manual focus). Or you could buy an external flash (e.g. Olympus FL-36) which has a red light for autofocus assistance instead of flash bursts.
