Question about Olympus FL-50 TTL Flash
Nothing..............tried everything..batteries and remotes all fine.................... Is there a fuse
Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/accessories/man_fl50_e.pdf Check page 62 and see if the reset will work; "Press the MODE and LIGHT buttons simultaneously for 2 or more seconds to reset the custom setups to the default settings." Also see if you get any change from cleaning the battery contacts carefully with a cotton bud/Q-tip with a little gin - sometimes a small amount of invisible dirt on these can stop the battery contacting. If you fancy opening the flash up, then if there is a fuse you will be able to see it - there is no easy to swap fuse that can be accessed from the outside. check if anything else inside is obviously burnt or broken - post back a photo if you can and we may see something to check. I think something fatal but probably replaceable has happened in the control electronics - possibly the screen has died. Check if the cable connecting the screen to the main board inside has come loose. Check the connections at the hinges - they can occasionally get damaged or pulled loose.
