    The flash IS on, but still does not work. Does this have to do with the flash needing to be charged or something? If so, how do I do this?

Hey emeffem,
What is most likely causing this is that the flash is set to off which would be symbolized by a lightening bolt sign crossed out. Directions on how to turn it back on are on page 13 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you no longer have it. I hope this helps!

No Flash -- Olympus 710


This is actually a repair issue with the camera. The flash charging indicator switch needs to be replaced. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair policies and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Flash Problem


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).
