Hey I have an E510 and an fl 36 flash unit and no problems for a year now.
And no problems at all {knock wood]!
Have you checked to see if all the flash pins are making contact?
Normally I only turn my flash on after I put it on the camera and then turn the camera off and then on again to see if everything is ok. I remember the flash would not communicate with the camera on a shoot and after a while I realized that the flash was not all the way in the hot shoe. Fool around with the flash off the camera first and see the flash have modes that you have to set up if the mode is set in full manual that might be a problem. There is a button that you have to hold down for three seconds to get in the menu. My buttons are fine and have not faded any at all. I realize that the power button an the flash is hard to press on, I do hope I was of help .GOOD LUCK

Here is the part that you need.

It will take some fiddling around with very small parts to get that installed.
Or you can send it in to Olympus- I know a couple of people that have been charged ~$50 for the repair and Olympus also reconditions everything as well.
Cheers.

Olympus fl-50 powers up but flash does not fire / work


I have the same problem, I have looked every where even on the Olympus site and have no luck finding anything, I paid £280 pounds for this unit and have hardly used it. Took it to a few repair center's & they reckon £200 pounds to repair it (how can that be) I only want it repaired and am sure it is the bulb I don't want to buy a new one this could happen again at great cost to me. I have to say I am not very happy with Olympus at all, bad service, & lack of help with this problem.

Need more power for fl-50


Use Sanyo Eneloop NiMH batteries. These are slow-discharge batteries that will keep you going for a long time. Cheers

Set Shutter at 125 or smaller

Canon SpeedLite 220EX


The two types of Camera refer to the SLR's. I doubt the G2 will support FP flash as it probobly does not have a focal plane shutter like a SLR.
