No flash Well, my Olympus 710 won't take pictures with the flash on. I don't know what happened, It will only take pictures with the flash turned off, and the flash charging light is always blinking. I didn't drop my camera. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

This is actually a repair issue with the camera. The flash charging indicator switch needs to be replaced. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair policies and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.
Hey emeffem, What is most likely causing this is that the flash is set to off which would be symbolized by a lightening bolt sign crossed out. Directions on how to turn it back on are on page 13 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you no longer have it. I hope this helps! http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/Stylus710Advanced_Manual.pdf Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
I;ve been on the internet all morning researching the same problem. It appears it's a curcuit related problem with the flash. As of know, haven't got a solution other then buying another camera or taking paictures in manuel mode without flash.
