Hi
your camera has flash circuit defective. the red light flashed mean it is trying to charge flash capacitor in its circuitry. it might has flash pcb defective or just fuse brown. you can bring to local repair shop and they would charge around $35 to 75 depend on what they really want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!

I have a Olympus FE-100. Everything works fine but it will not flash. Blinking red light. Blinking red lightening bolt. I have tried everything.


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 to turn the flash off?


Look at the back side of the camera. At the right side of OK button, there is a sign of flash (lightening with arrow), this is the flash button. Click this button to set the flash. To choose other flash setting, click this button several time until you get "FLASH OFF".

If useful RATE please !

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".

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.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.
