This part, the 'hot shoe assembly' is much stronger than it looks and holds all the weight of the flash mounted to the camera in those 2 little slots.
Yes, you'll need to replace it.
Are you comfortable with electronics and small components. There are small springs and pins/ball bearings/contacts in there when the cover is removed and wires may have to be soldered in place (I can't remember if there is a plug for those wires inside).
Try here to buy the part you need or contact Sony service (I'm assuming you're in the USA):

Keep us informed if this was good or you need further help.

How to replace FLASH SHOE BASE BRACKET UNIT on nikon D5000?


It screws in from the bottom of the top cover. You have to remove the bottom, back, and front covers, discharge the flash capacitor with the proper tool, unsolder and remove the top cover. and unsolder the dedicated contact pins from the top cover flex, plus any other things the top cover flex is connected to (usually the solenoid that controls the pop up of the flash) then you carefully pull the flex out of the way to reach the four screws that hold the hot shoe on.

T3 built in flash won't pop up. Says I have an external flash attached, but I don't.


There is a small flat leaf spring under the hot shoe rail where an eternal flash slides in. If an external flash is mounted the leaf spring is pressed against a small button telling the camera that there is an external flash mounted. Take a toothpick and rub under the hot shoe rail gently to more the leaf spring or unjam the leaf spring. You may even see the button depressed, poke at it a time or two with a toothpick, even a drop of rubbing alcohol may unstick this button if a sticky beverage sprayed on it.

Built in flash will not pop up. in menu the message reads external flash is attached, but no external flash is attached!!!


Hardware, not software.

Look at the hot shoe. The two metal tracks where your external flash slides on have a flexible strip under them which is pressed down when the flash is attached. Something is probably stuck in there, holding them down and closing the circuit that tells the camera the flash is attached.

Try sliding the corner of a business card or other stiff paper in there to dislodge whatever is keeping it down. Probably something as tiny as a grain of sand or other grit it causing the problem.

How do you synchronize a non olympus flash unit to an olympus e 500


Install flash on hot shoe and use shutter speed on camera set to no faster than 1/125. Read the owners manul for flash AND camera. Be careful, some trigger voltages may be higher than what your cdamera can handle and may ruin internal flash usage, if not camera itself. better to use a Wein Safesynch hot shoe. This mounts ion hotshoe of camera and flash is attached to this.

Flash not working


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.

Internal flash not working because of non compatible flash installed


Solution:
Look at the external flash socket.
With the camera in "normal position", i.e., poiting away from you, you shoul see a very small (I realy mean very small) piece of plastic under the rigth inside of the flash shoe... it is the "external flash sensor". It probably is stuck. Work with the point of a knife to try and release it.
In more detail, if you look carefully at the external flash shoe, the are two metal pieces that will help create some pressure. So the flash holder (shoe) is made of two parts: a very rigid one and the metal blades that create the pressure. Look under the blade located nearest to the shuter button.
If you can locate the plastic piece (black in my camera, but can be white) try to have unstuck.
Worked with my camera.

Hot shoe


If the flash is not sitting securely on the hot shoe when attached to the camera you may want to send the camera body to Olympus repair center for service. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3 to discuss the repair process and pricing if needed.

I also broke the base of my Quantaray QBSZ 370 where it fits the hot shoe. I can not even find a contact to Quantaray.

You also may have a faulty hot shoe adapter or pc cord. Check them with an ohm meter, or with an old 35 mm camera. Or just short out the hot shoe contacts with a piece of metal and see if the strobes flash.
