In short, no. In view of the extremely high and potentially fatal voltages which are in a flash even when turned off, repairs by untrained and unqualified persons are strongly discouraged. Olympus and Panasonic will not supply these parts except to dealers and repairers. You can get them from unoffocial sources, but the flash tubes may not be within official tolerances and so you end up with a flash which permanently over or under exposes.
The flash light intensity can be adjusted between +3 and –3.
The light intensity adjustment must be set to ON in the custom setup operation (page 61). • The indicator appears in the control panel.
Turn dial B to select a light intensity adjustment value in the following steps. (This selection is also possible with dial A.)
0 → +0.3 → +0.7→ +1.0 ... +3.0
0 → –0.3 → –0.7→ –1.0 ... –3.0
The display shows the light intensity adjustment value except when the value is 0, in which case the display does not show the light control range.
If the camera’s flash adjustment mode is selected, the actual flash light intensity will be the total of the light intensity adjustment value set on the FL-50 and that set on the camera. The light intensity adjustment value displayed is that of the FL-50 only.
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.
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.
