    I sort of figured this solution but the verification is most helpful. Thanks.

If the settings will not allow the flash, it's possible that the flash capacitor, xenon bulb, or hv transformer are bad, or it could be another hardware/software problem. The camera will have to be disassembled to check the components, and a service manual would help tremendously, but they're hard to find. I would run the camera in to a repair shop, and see what they think, and what they would charge for repair. If they want too much, of course, it's often better just to get a new camera, if the need for the flash justifies it.
Wish there were an easier answer, but if you've checked all the settings, then it's got to be another issue.
Good luck to you, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Internal flash not working on olympus e500


The Xenon flash tube in modern strobes rarely 'burns out'. I would guess that a switch that is activated when the flash pops up is not working properly. More info can be found here: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/olympus-dslr/159660-e-500-built-flash-not-working.html

Olympus FE-140 ok except that flash does not work


Make sure you try and reset the camera to the factory default settings. There may be a setting that you are using that has disabled the flash functionality. To reset the camera - have the camera in shooting mode - press the menu button - left arrow to reset and press ok - you will see reset yes or no - highlight yes and press ok - camera will be back in factory settings - see if flash is able to work now.

OLYMPUS SP350 WONT TURN ON


Try this:

1. Remove batteries
2. Remove XD card
3. Power up without XD card and try taking a few pictures using the internal memory.
4 If this works OK I suspect it is the XD card at fault. I have had a problem with a couple of cards but most of these were when I tried reading the card using an external card reader.
5. If you have one available or can borrow one try another XD card.

I have heard that some people have had some success using the following method to restore XD card.

If you know someone with a Fuji digital camera which takes XD cards then ask them to try formatting the card in their camera for you. Maybe your local retailer will let you try this with one of their display models. I have not tried this myself.

If this fails there are some card recovery programmes on the internet - try searching for CONVAR in Google.

If the card is a Fuji card then you could try contacting Fuji as they offer a card recovery service - or at least try to recover images from corrupt cards. Contact them on the internet first to check conditions and costs.

Finally I have not had any problems with the camera since I started using lithium or rechargeable lithium batteries.

No problems that is to say other than the person pushing the shutter release.

there is no chance you can fix it.. you need prof service to fix it. internal flash circuitry malfunction is present. try shooting in program mode or manual setting ( not using flash).
