The built in flash has stopped working


There is a small switch inside the flash flip up and it will get broken. Can only be replaced by someone with experience. You will do more damage to the camera trying to fix it. You can purchase a replacement for about $35 on Ebay or now is the time to upgrade.

I´ve opened the camera to clean it up


1. You shouldn't have opened it. 2. You probably shorted out the capacitor...lucky you didn't get burned. 3. You need repairs...bring lots of money.

External flash for dmc-fz50


Okay, first off, Panasonic makes several external flash units that work with this camera. The FL360 seems to be the best buy, though at around $300 it is not exactly cheap. It has TTL and I am very happy with mine. I bought a cheap Sunpak to use with my older FZ30 but I think the voltage was too high, as it stopped working with the hotshoe. I would not recommend using any flash that is not rated to work with a digital camera. The problem is, almost all that are currently made are designed to work with specific camera models. So, the Panasonic flashes seem to be the way to go. There is also a FL500, which has a higher guide number, but it is close to $500.

Now, you don't necessarily need FL360s or even digital flashes to work with a slave unit. I have one I picked up at a camera store to use with my Sunpak as a second off camera flash. As long as you have a flash to trigger them (i.e. the built in flash, or something like the FL360) any flash with a slave trigger will work. One other possible solution is a device also made by Wein that allows you to use an older flash with a digital camera. It reduces the trigger voltage and prevents damage to the camera. I have one on order, not to use for that purpose, but because it also allows one to use a plug in flash with a camera that lacks the appropriate place to plug the flash in. I hope that helps.

May I use a Soligor 24D Flash on my new Nikon D40X Digital Camera


You can purchase an off-camera flash sync adaptor at any good camera store, complete with extension cable.   The should work fine.

you mean the flash is not opening or coming out of its enclosure? if its not opening up, its stucked! try inserting a small plastic card into the flash compartment. a hook is holding the flash from coming up like a door lock. its near the shutter button side; if its up and not flashing take a look at the bulb, if theres a change in color its dead already. dead bulb can be checked by shooting on autmode (the green mode), dead bulb will gonna shoot but flash wont go, if the flash circuitry is bad it wont shoot no matter what.

Flash stopped working


No DIY fix for this. It will have to go back to Pentax or their agent. The likely cost of doing this could be well on the way to the price of a new camera.

The lens are stuck!


If you have tried to cure this, then buy a new camera, You will have caused further damage to fine moving parts- and a repair option will almost certainly cost more money and heart ache when you find you have spent money sending to a repair shop and paying for them to look and then telling you it cant be fixed.

Camera switches itself off after flash !


Use your warranty ASAP. I heard of 5600's that have problems with the flash - long recharge time, turning off after taking a picture, etc. This is not a setting thing you can adjust, or anything that you caused yourself, but a lemon. Take it back to the shop and ask for a replacement, and in no way agree to pay for a repair, it's not your fault. Good luck
