Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera ?

My olympus stylus 850 SW flash stopped working...


\015 Is there any master reset I can do that might get it to work? If not do you think it would be cheaper to bring it to a local shop to get it fixed or sending it to Olympus? I obviusly want it fixed sooner then later but don't know any good local shops if that is the route I should go...\015

Brightness I recently bought the Olympus Stylus 700 and took it on a vacation with me and it worked fine, but shortly after returning, the camera began to take extremely bright pictures, in fact if there is any natural light (not produced by the flash), there is nothing but the vague outlines of some objects. I adjusted the shutter speed to little avail and even thought formatting the memory card would help. Now I have no idea what else to do, aside from taking it back for its warranty.
