Question about Olympus FE-220 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flash issues My camera is brand new, I just bought it yesterday and it will only take pictures without flash. When I put the flash on, it will not take any pictures and it has a little red arrow, like the flash arrow, but its red and its flashing. Does this mean that the camera is no good.

It means that the battery is charging the flash! Wait a while and it should stop. Then take your photo.

Do make sure your battery is fully charged.

    If the battery id fully charged we are talking a matter of seconds...say 5 to 10.



    Did you charge the battery? If you placed it in the camera straight from the box it will not be fully charged; it will have only a test charge on it.

Hello drlokeshyada,
Please be sure the card you are using is between 2GB to 8GB, class 4 speed or higher. If your card meets these specifications, then this may be a card compatibility issue. Please try a different card brand as sometimes a certain brand may not be compatible with a certain electronic device.

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium...


if this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should produce more, it would be a good ide ato check with Canon to have the camera checked.

Flash works, but no pictures!


Hi there, I know it was a while ago now but I just found your post, the lens on mine broke yesterday but being a student I'm looking for someone with a broken identical camera with spare parts to fix it rather than buying a new one. Did you fix the camera, if not and it is lying around unused I would be very grateful if you would part with it so I can get mine working again.

Please contact me at samutacaratti@gmail.com
Kind Regards

I have a brand new Finepix S8100fd camera and the majority of the photos are speckled no matter what setting I use. However the super macro setting rocks and pictures are super clear! My Fuji 7.1 mega


Common issue with the A8100fd. The most likely problem you are having is not enough light. Try shooting in bright sunlight to test the "graininess". Make sure you use the flash anytime the light is not bright. Even though the camera will shoot in low light (without flash), because it defaults to a high ISO setting, which (just like film) accentuates the "grain", or more properly termed in digital photography, "noise". Set the camera for a low ISO setting and use the flash whenever you see the "red hand" symbol on the screen.

Canon powershot SD600 - flash doesn't work


It could be the sensor or a short in the flash wiring. You should take it into a camera shop and have them look at it. You could be covered under warranty if the camera is less than a year old.

Flash troubles- timing off or something?


this problem is fixable. set the camera under the fill-in flash mode. do the ff:
-click the flash button, (right button that has broken arrow on it)
-click it for many times until you see the icon of a big crooked arrow without something with it on the screen, that means your camera is nder the fill in flash.

when set under this mode, the flash will work in any instance you're in. because under the red eye function, flash is usually turned off.
