You need to learn the "half-press". You press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep). Then, when the moment is right, you finish pressing the rest of the way for an instant picture.

Each time I press the shutter button to take a picture the flash keeps flashing fast on and off 3 bursts of about 10 flashed then it takes a pic ??? help

The built-in flash can function as an autofocus illuminator. This helps with focusing in low-light conditions in the AF mode.
To disable this function, press the menu button, then select service1 menuitem, then AF illuminat., and finally, select OFF.

My Evolt E-300 won't take a picture. Seems find until you go to take the pic and then the shutter opens and closes multiple times without any picture.

Try to set all menu items to default as much as you can. Some cameras have a reset to default setting or a button to reset to default.
After setting to default, try the camera again.
If all fails, this camera will need repairs.
If it is too old, and not worth it, it may be the best to sell for parts on a site such as Ebay.

Olympus E-300 Digital SLR storing black images.

Most likely the shutter "curtain" (a few pieces looking like sheet metal just behind the mirror, designed to protect the camera CCD from dust and damage due to too much light) is not opening. This will require servicing by Olympus, since you will have to take the camera apart to be able to reach this camera part. Unfortunately, this may be a pretty expensive repair.

E-500 lock-up

Shutter speed too low and aperture probably set at wide open [3].
You will find that after two minutes the shutter will respond but you will get a blurry picture.
This setting is rarely used but you only learn from playing with different settings.
Olympus instruction manual needs to be in a better language for the beginner to learn.

Digital camera quite working

Check out the pins in the base of the card chamber- are any missing or bent? Next check out Mirror action- is it working? Try to get onto the Olympus Tech Support team. If it is broken I think a repair will not be an option- the cost if possible will be well on the way to the next camera This is my camera too - lovely under rated beasts

Can I take pictures while viewing subjects through the monitor of the camera?

No, you cannot because the Electronic Controlled Focal Plane Shutter and Mirror is in front of the CCD.

Focus modes

There are four focus modes: S-AF (Single auto focus), C-AF (Continuous auto focus), MF (Manual Focus), and S-AF/MF (Simultaneous mode). (SINGLE Auto Focus): Focusing is performed once when the shutter button is pressed halfway. C-AF (CONTINUOUS Auto Focus): The camera repeats focusing while the shutter button is pressed halfway. (MANUAL FOCUS): The function allows you to manually focus on any subject while looking through the viewfinder. SIMULTANEOUS USE of S-AF mode and MF mode: You can fine-adjust focus manually by turning the focus ring after AF is performed in the S-AF mode.
