Green power light continues to flash when camera is "off"
I just put this note in with some people's messages re: same problem but I see it's coming up in the "solved" category because someone suggested that maybe there's an additional battery of some sort somewhere else in the camera. I didn't think that was a solution, so I'm re-posting in this area. In a nutshell, the green power lamp next to the selection wheel on top of the camera continues to flash even when the monitor is turned off and the lens barrier is shut. It will flash until the battery has no charge left. I couldn't find anything in any reference material that came with the camera. Finally called Olympus and the customer service guy consulted all his reference material, his peers and his supervisor and could not tell me what's going on. They did send me a new battery :) but it didn't help with the flashing light. I don't think it's a matter of barrier incomplete closure or anything like that. One thing I did notice is that when the power lamp is flashing and the lens barrier is closed, the monitor doesn't want to come on right away - sometimes I have to try three or four times to get it to come up so I can view pictures.
If anyone has any ideas about this or has found a solution (other than removing the battery when camera isn't in use), I'd really appreciate it.
Re: Green power light continues to flash when camera is...
I had the same problem after inserting a freshly charged battery. I finally got rid of it by just removing the battery over night. The next morning when I inserted the battery, the camera worked as before.

Yes, the was bothering me for some time. I think the indicator is a little green light that blinks in the extreme upper left hand portion of the phone...not on screen, above it....but the blinking light may indicate a missed call or a voice mail is present.
Try this. Go into your phone icon, press and hold '1' and listen to any open messages. Delete each. Next go into your Call Log and delete all call history. Now exit.There should be no green light flashing in the upper left hand corner of phone. You have just cleared everything.
Next call your phone but hang up before leaving a message. Note the blinking green light in the upper left hand corner apparently indicating you missed a call. Go into your Call Log. It will say one missed call. Exit the call log and note that the blinking light is now off. You have acknowleged the call in the call log so the light goes off when you exit.
Call the phone again. This time leave a message. Note the blinking light again. Go into your call log again. Note the missed call. It would be nice if there was an icon or something HERE that indicates if this call left a voice message....but there does not appear to be. Exit again. This time note that the light continues to blink even though you entered the call log and acknowleged the call. I believe it continues to blink because you have a voice message. Exit.
Go into the call log again. Delete the missed call from the call hsitory. Exit. The light still blinks, I believe still indicating a voice message.
Go to your phone icone. Press '1' to check messages, delete the message and exit. The blinking is now gone.
So it appears a blinking green light indicates a missed call. If it still blinks after exiting the call log, you have a voice message.
If someone figures something else out let me know because this stinks!
A continuous flashing red light with the word LAMP on it would definitely mean you're going to need to spend a few bucks on a new lamp....or for a few more, upgrade to a TV from this century that doesn't require lamp changes :)
Hi there its happens when the lens not ready for work. Some how its not able to stable his focus method. That's why its come out & go back. There is a chances of lens guide pin disturbed or damaged & thats why green light blinking continues. Its mean he inform you there is a system error.
