Olympus e500 internal flash not working

My Olympus e500, internal flash stopped working. When I press the flash-up button, it opens the flash. however, it doesn't show the options to choose flash modes by this button.
There is no way I can get flash working. Could it be flash fuse or something?

Please help.

    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

    Why won't the flash on my e500 pop up when the correct button is pressed or when I try to take a picture that requires a flash?


    When you take pictures in AUTO, Portrait, Macro or Night scene mode, the built-in flash will automatically pop up in low-light or backlit conditions. If you want to control the flash pop-up, set this function to OFF.
    1 Menu [AUTO POP UP]
    2 Use control dial to select [ON] or [OFF].
    3 Press the Ok
    button.

    If you are in any other mode the flash will not auto pop up.

    Cant get my RM-2 remote to work my olympus e500


    The remote may be on a different channel than the camera.

    Note: In cases of frequency interference or when you want to match the control frequency with the camera, aim the remote at the Remote Control window on the camera, and press the CH button and the W or T button at the same time until the Self-Timer/Remote control signal blinks or the camera emits a beep sound.

    How do you set up sequential shooting on an Olympus E500


    Single-frame shooting o Shoots 1 frame at a time when the shutter button is
    pressed. (normal shooting mode)
    Sequential shooting j Shoots 4 frames or more at 2.5 frames/sec. (in SHQ,
    HQ or SQ) for as long as the shutter button pressed.
    Focus and exposure are locked at the first frame.
    1 Press the </Y/j (Remote control/
    Self-timer/Drive) button.
    2 Use the control dial to set.
    o Single-frame shooting
    j Sequential shooting
    3 Press the shutter button all the way to
    take the picture.
    Press the shutter button fully and keep it
    pressed. The camera will take pictures in
    sequence until you release the button.
    Notes
    Sequential shooting is not possible when [NOISE REDUCTION] (g P. 95) is set
    to [ON].
    During sequential shooting, if the battery check blinks due to low battery, the
    camera stops shooting and starts saving the pictures you have taken on the card.
    The camera may not save all of the pictures depending on how much battery power
    remains.

    The above comes from page 62 of your user manual.
