Question about Olympus FL-36 TTL Flash

My FL 36 suddenly stopped firing. Everything else is normal: the display panel, knobs and illumination. It does not fire even if I depress the test/charge button. What is wrong with the flash?

My canon 580 EX II stops firing even with new batteries


You must disable the 580EX II form using the 4AA.

4AA must be needed when using hv power pack.

Just let the 4AA use & display the LCD panel.

More help, repairs & troubleshooting send me an email.

D300, SB-800 fires but no exposure.


Thats is odd.
When you hook everything up, do you turn on the flash last?
It sounds like the battery pack is giving the flash a different voltage then it should have causing incorrect readings and exposures.
I would send the pack back to Quantum(located in Ronkonkoma, NY) and have them check it.

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.

FL-36 flash


It's my experience that the contacts down at the bottom of the battery compartment corrode easily. Clean them with electronic contact cleaner and a swab and they should work again - for a while.

Non-syncing Olympus FL-36


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
