Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

I have an Olympus MJU 700 but the flash is not working

Answers :

I want you to check these,

Check that batteries are fresh.

Check that camera hasn't been \015\012\011\011\011\011set for no-flash mode.

\015\012\011\011\011\011Give the flash time to charge before pressing shutter.

Try to reset your phone by MASTER RESET(Factory reset) by referring to your manual.

If you updated the firmware for your camera, then that update can also be a reason for your flash not working. so try installing the firmware which was present when the camera was working good.

check there is any debris in the hot shoe, there is a switch on the left\015\012that stops the pop up working when you put a external flash on.

If you have been using a speedlite or another flash on the hotshoe\015\012lately, there is a little metal strip in the hotshoe (rail) that\015\012disables the pop-up built-in flash. So, this little metal strip goes\015\012down when you slide in an external flash and disable the built-in flash\015\012by breaking an electrical contact. This little metal strip has the\015\012occasional tendency to get stucked down after unmounting your\015\012speedlite, which results in the behavior you are seeing. Just turn OFF\015\012your camera and use a toohpick in the hotshoe and force very gently the\015\012metal strip up to make the metal strip goes back to its original\015\012position when there is no speedlite mounted on your camera. Compare\015\012both sides in the hotshoe (rail). Turn it ON and there you go!
