Hi Guys,

Good day. I recently bought (about 1 week ago) an Olympus EM-5. I tried the camera for sometime now.

But I haven't tested the mini flash since I bought it. Last night, I've been trying the mini flash included and seems not working or atleast I could not make it work.

I have tried switching in different modes and even set the dial mode to Program and Scene (tried the night portrait) but the flash won't shoot.

Does somebody experienced this? I'm a newbie in photography and appreciate your help and advise on how can I make the flash work.


Thanks a lot! :)

Yup, I pull up the flash.. When I'm half pressing the shutter button, I can see that the flash icon is blinking, but flash isn't working.

I haven't touched any of the flash setting. Any recommendation on how to test this flash is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks! :)

Pay a visit to Service Center and let them check. But first you could check with the manual, they usually include a basic troubleshooting guideline.
Last but not least, there is an Olympus equipment section here where the chances for answers or solutions are higher than here in the common section for everything.

Set the flash mode to fill flash and try again?
