Hi
blinking red light means camera is trying to charge flash circuitry. if you cancel flash mode, you can use taking picture. But if you want to repair, your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 75 depend on what they really want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!

How do u turn off the flash on the olympus fe-170? im going to a clapton concert tonite and i need the flash to be set to off i tried everything and i cant turn it off....please help!...thanks!


Press Right-arrow (marked with the lightning bolt) repeatedly to select the flash mode. In this case, you want the lightning bolt inside a circle with a slash through it, indicating "no flash".

After the concert, don't forget to set it back to Auto, or the flash will never fire again :-)

The flash does not work and shows a red lightening bolt in the viewfinder. I can still take pics without the flash needed


Two possible causes: 1. Your battery is weak. 2. You have the flash turned off. Press the button with a picture of a lightning bolt and watch the screen to see if it changes. Stop when you see the bolt and an "a".

MY OLYMPUS FE-115- THE FLASH DOESN'T GO OFF


You can try to reset the camera back to factory settings to see if the flash will start working again. To reset: Have the camera in shooting mode - press the down arrow - camera will indicate reset or cancel - highlight reset and press ok - the camera will be back in factory settings - see if flash fires - if it does then fine - if you see a red flash charging icon blinking on the screen this is a repair issue and the camera needs to be sent to Olympus for service.

Olympus battery charger flashes red when battery is inserted.


@gminvite1
"Another way I found was when this happens, to push the battery to the point the light will turn on, when it starts flashing slide it off then back on. Do this a few times so it charges a little, then you should be fine to leave it on."

I tried to do this with my LI-10C Olympus charger and it worked..The blinking red light turns to solid red..Thanks for the info...Now I won't be bothering to buy a new batt.or have my charger checked..

OLYMPUS 410


It is something that seems to be a problem with the Stylus 410s. Olympus will not repair them unless they are under warrenty, I've tried. My best advice, and what I am in the midst of myself (I have 2 of these with the same problem) is to file with the BBB. Perhaps if enough complaints come through, they will begin to fix the stylus 410 defect as they should. Good luck. =)
