I also broke the base of my Quantaray QBSZ 370 where it fits the hot shoe. I can not even find a contact to Quantaray.

Canon 60d flash won't pop up


It is a problem with them that if you fit a flash to the hotshoe that after a while the tabs under the hotshoe rails don't pop back up so you have to get a micro bladed screwdriver and GENTLY prize them up until they contact the rail then try the popup button again

Nikon d700 hotshoe missfire with flash nikon sb900


Probably a loose hotshoe. This is a common problem with the D700 hotshoe and SB900 combo. The weight of the SB900 eventually loosens the hotshoe, meaning the internal screws holding the hotshoe in place loosens.

I have a Quantaray Flash unit PZ-1 DSZ the foot which attaches it too the camera has broken off. Can this be repaired?


if the contacts are on that piece you can not do anything else but changing the case for it ..and I dont think this is something easy to do ...probably you will have to buy a second hand one for parts..and do it ..
But i f it is just broke ..and the contacts are still intact..try to use a high quality glue ..and repair it ...and if you are not very fun about the looks it will work ,,

I have an Olympus MJU 700 but the flash is not working


Hi,
I want you to check these,

Check that batteries are fresh.

Check that camera hasn't been set for no-flash mode.

Give the flash time to charge before pressing shutter.

Try to reset your phone by MASTER RESET(Factory reset) by referring to your manual.

If you updated the firmware for your camera, then that update can also be a reason for your flash not working. so try installing the firmware which was present when the camera was working good.

check there is any debris in the hot shoe, there is a switch on the left that stops the pop up working when you put a external flash on.

If you have been using a speedlite or another flash on the hotshoe lately, there is a little metal strip in the hotshoe (rail) that disables the pop-up built-in flash. So, this little metal strip goes down when you slide in an external flash and disable the built-in flash by breaking an electrical contact. This little metal strip has the occasional tendency to get stucked down after unmounting your speedlite, which results in the behavior you are seeing. Just turn OFF your camera and use a toohpick in the hotshoe and force very gently the metal strip up to make the metal strip goes back to its original position when there is no speedlite mounted on your camera. Compare both sides in the hotshoe (rail). Turn it ON and there you go!

Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

Hotshoe problem


I have not soved this problem. I do not need your assistance since you tricked me into giving you my e-mail address and letting you know my situation. After all of this you asked for a signup fee. You should have gave me all this info about fees before I started.

How to replace LCD monitor/screen in an Olympus C5050 camera


Easy, remove the 9 screws that hold the rear case and pull the case apart,.remember there are 4 screws under the hotshoe base and 4 under the memory door and one under the USB cover. You need to pry and slide the hotshoe base back with a slim screwdriver and youll see 4 screws, remove the rear ones. There will be 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear case, the LCD and the buttons. These pull out carefully with gentle pressure. The LCD can be removed with screws and another ribbon cable connector that needs to be unclipped and then removed. replace LCD, Put it back together and make sure the ribbon cables are fully seated. Good to go.

How to disassemble case.


Pry the metal spring clip in the base of the hotshow toward the rear of the camera with a pocketknife, itll pop out and there will be 4 small screws under there, Ill put a buck on that bet. The hotshoe needs some good anchors to support some beefy flash units so it has screws to hold it down, metal hotshoe to metal chassis.
