Flash settings not working

I think I may have a problem with the flash on my camera. According to the manual, pressing the AF/Metering mode button with the lever in position 2 should bring up the flash options. On my camera with the lever in position 1 or 2 I just get the AF options. I tried the flash last night and all the photos were very underexposed.

I have just tried a full reset and it is still the same. At the moment I have the battery out to see if that will reset it.

Does anyone have any suggestions or will the camera have to go back to Olympus for repair?

Ron

I Think you have to customise it with Cog B, leaver fuction and then the leaver 2+. I find it more easy to do through the SCP.

Hope this makes sence.

Re: Flash settings not working

Sorted! Andy you are a star. The Lever 2+ setting was set to Off instead of On. It is working properly now. Many thanks.

I have not got to replace all the settings which were changed by the reset.
