Question about Olympus C-3000 Zoom Digital Camera
I am experiencing a problem with my camera, and don't know what it could be attributed to. I take a shot, and the red lamp - on the camera's rear, by the card slot door - illuminates and enters a flickering stage for close to three minutes. At the same time, the LCD info screen shows the flashing icon of a pencil drawing a line on a piece of paper. At the end of this time period, the red lamp extinguishes and the LCD screen goes blank. I then turn the powermode dial from the "P" position to "OFF", and the camera then emits 16 beeps. The battery indicator (upon restarting the camera) shows a full charge. Everything was fine, when I used the camera the other day. The batteries had been taken out and recharged, earlier tonight, and this problem surfaced after reinstalling them. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Well, I did get this problem squared away. What I had to do was to format my card. Prior to doing this I grabbed all of the photos from the camera via my 'FileScavenger' data retrieval program (whew, so glad that I bought that nifty program).

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.
If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.
You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.
