    Hello, i just found my old and dusty camera olympus D-320L, i know it's really old, but as i remember it worked. So i got the camera and i got a 8mb smartmedia memory card,and also the 4 batteries needed for the camera to work :cool: . The problem is that when i slide the cover the INDICATOR LED keeps flashing and doesn't stop (but not the memory card error by the way) . I look in the manual and it says that when this happens it's because the flash is charging, but it keeps doing this for loooong and i can't get any picture taken because of this. But when i deactivate the flash mode i can take pictures, so the problem is with the flash, can anyone give me a clue what should i do? Thanks for any answer i may get (y)

    P.D: The manual says something about using only 3.3v memory cards and the one i got says only 3v, could that be the problem?

    It could be that the batteries will just not allow the flash to charge, as one may be faulty (unable to deliver the current)?

    Presumably you have tried that by now.

    If the flash circuitry is faulty, then it may prevent the camera from getting to the "ready" state in theory. No cure other than repair, and repair could be uneconomic.
