Based on what you report the camera would need to be serviced. Regretfully all parts, accessories and repair service have been discontinued due to the age of the camera.
You may refer to the yellow pages for local camera repair centers who may be able to offer parts and service on the camera.

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.

I had the same problem with my Nikon coolpix camera. Fortunately, I found a very strange solution from google.com :

"Hit the camera on the palm of your hand a few times (hit the side of the camera , not the lens). Try it slow at first, if it does not work try to hit it harder (but gently). "

I'm not sure if it will work with an Olympus camera and if this is a permanent solution ( a co-worker borrowed and lost my camera after a few months!!) . Also, there is a risk that you will permanently damage the camera. If your camera is under warrany send it for repair.

Good luck!

When taking a picture, the camera analyzes the brightness and contrast of your subject and displays it on the LCD monitor so that you can evaluate and adjust the exposure properly.

The Olympus LB-01 CR-V3 lithium batteries will provide approximately 450 shots with typical usage (half of the images shot with flash/half without flash and minimal use of the LCD monitor).

Yes, set the camera mode dial to P, A/S/M or any shooting mode except the movie mode. Turn on the extension flash unit's power then select the camera's flash mode. The flash mode button on the camera controls the built-in flash as well as the extension flash. Only the built-in flash and the Olympus FL-40 extension flash can use the red-eye reduction flash mode. All flash units can use the fill flash, flash off, and slow-sync flash modes.

The 5-pin TTL connector is designed to control the Olympus FL-40 dedicated flash unit (p/n 200596). To use the FL-40 with these cameras, the optional Olympus FL-CB01 cable (p/n 200 664) and FL-BK01 flash bracket (p/n 200 666) must be used. The 5-pin TTL connector can also control a PC Sync flash or strobe system by using the optional FL-CB04 flash cable (p/n 200 661). Since this type of flash/strobe is non-dedicated, the photographer will need to manually match the flash output with the camera.

Yes, there is a 5-pin external flash terminal on the C-730 Ultra Zoom.
