    Flash indicator and orange light flashing. Won't take a picture unless flash mode is turned off.

    Ditto. Same exact issue. This camera has been well used, but it's still very disappointing.

    My Olympus Stylus 410 will not take a picture unless I turn off the flesh

    This happened to me too. I was at a football game, taking pictures
    with my family and all of a sudden, the red flash indicator is on
    permanently and the orange light keeps flashing. I have taken really
    good care of this camera and am really disappointed!

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. =)

There may be a problem with the flash circuit. until and unless flash is charget the camera won't work in photo mode, but, will work in video mode. and the red flashing indicator is also for uncharged flash.
