Try to trigger it by shorting Center of shoe mount and the side terminal with a small wire.If it is firing the flash is ok.
If not there is open connection in the sync jack ,due to repeated inserting of sync chord.The springy part inside is not going back to its normal position.
You can fix it your self by opening it(adapter only)
.If you are new to this take a photo of the wiring immediately after opening the shoe adapter to see the position if any wire breaks later on.
Do not give up .383 is great flash

call olympus spares dept. You need the exact part number, which can sometimes be hard to get, sometimes they will fax the diagram so you can id the part. The spares dept tel # is hard to find. The links on olympus website will not get you there and the consumer hotline will not give the spares dept #. They now try to keep consumers from fixing stuff themselves and a lot of spares they no longer will sell to you. They used to be one of the best and very helpful. I managed to get a spare battery cover after a lot of hassle a while back, but they said they would not supply most parts for these newer flashes.

I managed it by buying a broken (non-working) F32X from an auction service for something like 5 bucks. I just made sure (by looking at the photos) that the hotshoe was intact.
Here's how to disassemble and replace foot (I got to this by trial and luckily no error ^^).
Unscrew 2 small screws located under the battery flip cover.
Took me about an hour to do this (most time was spent on trying to figure out how to disassemble the lamp), and the lamp works perfectly.
Warning: better test disassembly on the replacement lamp, since even if you break it, all you need it for is the hotshoe, so you can practice on it. Only after you learn how to disassemble the F32X do this on your working lamp.
Hope this helps!
