Internal flash not working on olympus e500

\015 My internal flash on my Olympus E500 pops up but won't flash. Thinking maybe the bulb is burned out?? Is it simple to fix myself??\015

Answers :

The Xenon flash tube in modern strobes rarely 'burns out'. I would guess that a switch that is activated when the flash pops up is not working properly. More info can be found here: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/olympus-dslr/159660-e-500-built-flash-not-working.html
