the self timer usually works like this.
find the self timer setting and set it to 5 or 10 seconds.
then exit the menu and click the button that you normally press to take photo. the self timer will start automatically and the picture will be taken after 5 or 10 seconds (depending on what you set).
note that the self timer will be reset to off after this.
I had the same problem. I wanted to set my Olympus C5000 Zoom to automatically date stamp photos. After going through the entire manual, I had to call Olympus directly. They told me that none of their cameras have an internal date stamp feature. They said that the date stamp lowers the quality of the picture, so they choose not to have the feature available. However, you can manually add the date and time stamp through the software that comes with the camera, just before you print the pictures. Hope that helps...
if you need help with that manual go to http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/ and get our off the list. It is on there!!! about the middle of the page.
There is definitely a self timer. I believe you invoke it by pressing the button to the right of the viewfinder several times, until the self timer mode appears on the display. I don't have camera or manual handy so I can't be more specific. Download the manual from Olympus' website if you don't have it.
It might not work in Auto mode, you might have to change the dial on top to the P/S/I/M setting
