Install flash on hot shoe and use shutter speed on camera set to no faster than 1/125. Read the owners manul for flash AND camera. Be careful, some trigger voltages may be higher than what your cdamera can handle and may ruin internal flash usage, if not camera itself. better to use a Wein Safesynch hot shoe. This mounts ion hotshoe of camera and flash is attached to this.

The onboard flash just stopped working


It's either the charging circuit, the capacitor or the flash tube, but unless your camera is still under the Olympus two year worldwide warranty (if purchased from an authorised Olympus Dealer within Europe, proof of purchase required) then you'll have to either send the camera to Olympus for a repair estimate (this costs £15 if you choose to have the camera returned unrepaired) or take it to an independent camera repairer for diagnosis.

The above links/prices are for the UK but should help you navigate to your own country if different.

Alternatively, don't bother with the repair of the pathetically weedy onboard flash and invest the money on a proper external flash instead. You don't have to buy the overpriced Olympus/Panasonic offerings; there are cheaper non-dedicated flash units (you'll need to learn a little bit about how to use them, but they are VERY cheap) or you can buy the excellent Metz 48 AF-1 which is available as an Oly/Panasonic unit and in the UK/Europe is cheaper than a genuine Oly/Panasonic flash. Metz are the undisputed market leaders in flash units and always retain an excellent resale value.

Hope this has helped you, please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer.

Internal flash not working on olympus e500


The Xenon flash tube in modern strobes rarely 'burns out'. I would guess that a switch that is activated when the flash pops up is not working properly. More info can be found here: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/olympus-dslr/159660-e-500-built-flash-not-working.html

Olympus E-500 flash smelling like burnt plastic


You should contact Olympus about this.

Olympus have had a recall on some older 35mm film cameras for problems with the flash circuit.

Please see -

5-pin TTL connector for external flash


The 5-pin TTL connector is designed to control the Olympus FL-40 dedicated flash unit (p/n 200596). To use the FL-40 with these cameras, the optional Olympus FL-CB01 cable (p/n 200 664) and FL-BK01 flash bracket (p/n 200 666) must be used. The 5-pin TTL connector can also control a PC Sync flash or strobe system by using the optional FL-CB04 flash cable (p/n 200 661). Since this type of flash/strobe is non-dedicated, the photographer will need to manually match the flash output with the camera.
