    I'm not familiar with it, but it doesn't sound essential to me. Probably have to take it to a repairer, but in the pre-autofocus era, sound more like a gimmick.

    Depends what the light does. Some cameras used an infra-red light source to assist focussing and often this only activates when a flash is connected. Some flash guns have built -in focus assist. Looking up the OM30 it sounds like it was a very early (and not vey successful) AF system with one AF lens.

    It seems to be mostly a manual focus camera that had an autofocus option with one lens. Does it have the usual split image and microprism collar in the centre of the viewfinder? If it does use that and forget about the focus aid...

    Be sure all five batteries are good (1.5 volt) silver oxides. If that's not it, check the battery contacts themselves.
