Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera ?

No flash on Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom

\015 I have an Olympus C-740 UZ since 2004 march.It's a great camera, but from 2008 august I can't use the flash.There is an icon with the flash symbol cross out.I tried all kinds of settings but these crossed out flash symbol remain.what can I do ?I live in Targu Mures, Romania. thanks, Sanyi.\015

Answers :

This does appear to be a settings problem...
On the 710, there are a number of settings combinations that will result in the flash remaining off.
Here are some that I can think of :

> If the camera is set to "Super-Macro", the camera will not allow you to turn on the flash.
> If you are shooting using any of the scene modes, watch out, because several of these can set the flash to "off", and may not allow you to override that setting. Try exiting "Scene" mode, and try setting the flash.
> If you are shooting using the "Guide" mode, be aware that several of the options there will set your flash to "off". But (in my experience) you usually can override "Guide" mode's flash settings.

This one is important>>> If you are shooting in the "Auto" mode, the camera will always decide whether to flash, and you can not alter its decision. The way to escape this tyranny is to shoot in the "Program Auto" mode. This setting is not located in the same place as all the others, at least it is not accessed in as direct a way. Try this :
>>With the mode selector switch (dial) positioned to indicate the picture of the little camera (and with power on), press the "OK" button in the middle of the 4-way controller. Now you can see the "Shooting" menu.
>>Use the bottom (down) part of the 4-way controller to scroll through the options...you are looking for the one that gives you a choice between "P" and "AUTO". Stop scrolling when that location is highlighted. Now you can use the right or left parts of the 4-way to select between the "P" or the "AUTO". Be patient here, as the camera's shift from one setting to the other can be sluggish, and if you press the button just fast enough, it will appear that no change is taking place. Be sure to select "P", and press "OK" again. Now you should have regained control of your flash settings...but to exercise that control, you will, of course, have to be in normal shooting mode (the picture of the little camera), and press the right side of the 4-way controller to open up the flash settings screen. There, use the 4-way controller and the "OK" button to make your selections. Consult your manual for the meanings of the symbols.

If it is not one of these, it may be still be a combination that I haven't listed...or it may be something more serious. I hope this helps, and good luck!

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?
