Olympus 740 stylus flash not working

Hi

We dropped our camera in water (not a lot though) but ever since our flash has stopped working. whenever we try to take pics with flash on, the lightening bolt sign keeps flickering & the pic cannot be taken. Can somebody pls tell us what could be possible wrong & how to rectify this.

thanks
Pooja

It sounds like you need a new battery. When batteries start to fail the flash tends to stop working. You can get a battery at www.needbattery.com
They guarantee thier batteries for a year and they are 1 of the cheapest stores for batteries you can find on or off the net. Hope this helps.

I need a replacement olympus programme installationcd


You don't need to use the Olympus software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

There is probably a setting on your camera that prevents you from writing to the card. There may also be a switch on the card that prevents the card from being written to.

My flash stopped working for no real reason.


The battery condition may have dropped below the amperage necessary to run the flash. I have had the same problem on my Olympus and Canon, and a replacement battery did the trick.

Dropped camera when kens was out


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. 
thank u rate me!!!

If it works, use it as long as you can.

Fixing snap-shooters is generally not worth it,
since digital cameras evolve rapidly and lose
value even faster with age.

No flash pictures


by dropping you can damage the charging circuit of the flash unit. flash tube is the later part. it seems that the charging circuit of the camera is not working thus it hangs the camera when flash is switched on.
