    I've just bought a E-PL2 camara and I'm really strugling to get the flash to work I wonder what I'm doing wrong..
    - If I set it to automatic mode and auto flash it doesn't work in most cases, let alone if the room is too dark.
    - If I use M or S mode and flash on all the time, it works whenever it feels like and I don't seem to find out why it doesn't flash most of the time.
    Please help!!!

    Set the flash to the lightning bolt symbol (full).

    That is the problem I can't choose fill in modus when it's set in iauto. I can only choose auto (which only flashes once every 10 pics) or flash off. The other options are there but they're grey and can't be chosen.
    I've tried to reset the whole thing but I don't get to do that either.. The reset option is also grey.
    Any other suggestions, please???
