Question about Olympus Stylus 760 Digital Camera

1 Answer

After the second or third picture that I take the camera freezes up and the "red busy" light continuously flashes. and will not let you do anything or let you push any buttons. The only way to get out of it is to take the battery out of the camera and put it back in. After doing so none of the pictures that I just took show up. What do I DO?!

What is the difference between the flash and continuous lighting, why not using continuous lighting for photography?


Two main reasons flash is used over continuous lighting.

Power. Lighting a scene for minutes uses much more power than lighting it for a fraction of a second. You may have noticed that most continuous lights need to be plugged in to a power supply, while most flash units work with small batteries. It may not make much difference if you're shooting indoors in a studio, but if you're out in the field and have to move around, it can get difficult lugging all that gear around.

Duration. A flash unit provides a very brief flash of light while a continuous unit is, well, continuous. A flash can freeze action much better than just using the camera's shutter. Try it yourself sometime: turn on the lights in the bathroom (and/or bring in your continuous light units) and take some pictures of a dripping faucet. Now turn off the lights and take some flash pictures of the same thing. See the difference?

"Busy" Flashing. Delaying time


How long does it take for the image to be saved? I used to have an older camera that took 4-5 seconds to save picture while a red "busy" light flashed. Some cameras just aren't as fast as others and so you may want to buy a new one.

Canon XSI showing "busy" when taking multiple shots


It can be that your batteries are low and takes longer to charge the flash... It can also be that your memory card is a slow on. If the red processing light on the back of the camera is staying on a long time, it means the camera is having trouble feeding the picture to the card... You might try decreasing the picture quality a little...

Battery will not continue charge after a few seconds


Run the battery all the way down until completely dead and then try recharging. Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries don't develop a "memory" quite like the old nickel cadmium (Ni Cad) batteries, but this seems to work when my cell phone won't hold a charge for more than a day.

Flash busy signal


This is perfectly normal, the flash uses short burst of electricity that are stored in a large state capacitor. This has to be recharged after so many pictures. You can go as fast as the SD card will allow even if the flash is charging, simply close the flash and continue taking photos without it, no effect apart from loss of some illumination depending on the conditions.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


I have seen this problem on the ex-s880 casio camera a few times sometimes you can go into the setup menu and reset the camera to default and that some times fixes it. it that does not work I have had to replace the flash circuit on the camera because the large compasitor is out and needs tobe replaces most likely this is your problem because of the flashing LED. Hope this helps its a great camera also you might want to check with casio because this should be covered under warrenty. If the camera was not dropped.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.

Using flash freezes up camera


When taking pictures, you must really be allowing time for the camera's flash to be charged
before you could take another picture so that camera will have enough time to rest and it
could function normally.
But if the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like flash will not work properly.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Be in AUTO mode
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Turn it on and take a picture.
When you want to have just the AUTO FLASH.

- Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM
- Press the LEFT/FLASH button until you've seen the
LIGHTNING icon with the Letter A on the leftmost part of the screen
- Try to take a picture by pressing and holding the shutter button
halfway first for 3-5 seconds and then press it all the way down

If it still does not work, you need to contact the Manufacturer.
