Wont take pics, flashes orange and green light when i try. olympus D-520
Ok. So, I've had this happen several times before. I was once able to make it work anyway and it usually seemed to fix itself after so I figured there was no point in getting help. Now, however, the camera (Olympus Camedia D-520 zoom) won't let me turn on the screen display or even take pictures with the lens open.
When I turn on the screen so I can see what the picture will look like, the green and orange lights right next to the part you put your eye at turn on and the camera pretty much shuts off. This happens when I try to do anything with the lens open. I used to be able to take pictures without the screen on, but now the camera is useless except for loading stuff to the computer.
The frequency of this happening has led me to believe that this problem is common, yet it seems that nobody has ever posted the problem or a possible solution. And to top it all off I've gone and lost my manual. If somebody could please tell me what is going on or, more importantly, how to FIX it, please say something.

The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing. The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.
Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.
Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before
resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once. 1. Start with printer OFF 2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER 3. Release RESUME 4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER 5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving. 6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER
0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960) 1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print 2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise 3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.
Ok we're back to the flashing lamp cover LED. The green flashes you are seeing is the TV trying to start up. After it tries for awhile, it will eventually shut down and display an error code, in this case, the lamp cover LED flashing which means either the lamp cover, filter cover or main cabinet sensing switches are not closed, are intermittent or have some kind of wiring issue. A solid lamp cover light (no flashing) would point to the lamp and lamp drive, but the flashing light points to the switches. Give me an email address and I'll send you the training and troubleshooting manual so you can see for yourself. Any ther help needed, please don't hesitate to ask.

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. =)
I'm having the same problem with mine. Happens on rechargeables or brand new standard batteries as well. Very frustrating. I can't take more than 2 videos in a row without the dreaded orange/green lights flashing (low battery warning). Leaving it for 10-20 minutes and it works again, with the battery charge showing full.
