Auto flash does not pop up on Canon7D


This usually means the camera thinks there is something connected to the hot shoe, but there is nothing connected to the hot shoe. Likely one of the micro switches under the rails of the hot shoe is stuck, or you need to tighten the hot shoe. Here is a nice guide to fix this:

Hello my hot shoe on my e-620 is loose need to be tightened how do i get to the screws to tighten them ?


I can't figure out what your camera make is, but every hot shoe I have ever investigated is the same- there is a very thin piece of metal lying in the bottom that hides the screws. You can pick this out with tweezers if you stick them under the metal in the middle near the "hot" contact and lift the metal up so that the hooks at the front come clear- then slide the metal piece out towards the rear. You don't actually have to put it back after. It just looks neater.

My right rear brakes squeak due to the hand brake


Getting the levers loose is a start but the shoes may have gotten hot and "glazed". Have him replace the shoes, use a good quality name brand and not the cheapest you can find shoes, and it should be OK.

Hot shoe


If the flash is not sitting securely on the hot shoe when attached to the camera you may want to send the camera body to Olympus repair center for service. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3 to discuss the repair process and pricing if needed.

Switch from film to digital cameras.


I also own a Vivitar 285 that i used with my Canon F1 manual 35mm camera. Most older cameras before the advent of digital, had a hot shoe on top of the camera, or like in my case, the hot shoe went over the rewind knob. I also had to plug in a power cord from the 285 flash foot and the cameras PC connection in order for the flash to work on some other cameras. The Canon Rebel XTi has a TTL (through the lens) hot shoe usable with Canon's own EX flash units. You can buy a "hot shoe to PC connector" if the TTL camera hot shoe doesn't work, but be extremely careful, the only problem that exists with the older manual flash units was the trigger voltage is as high as 200+volts which would fry digital camera hot shoes. I tried my unit with a Wein flash trigger device on the PC cord of the flash and my Canon D60 with it's own flash. All shots were overexposed and washed out highlights.  Here's a copy of the hot-shoe review:h The EOS 400D's hot-shoe can be used with Canon and third party flashes (although sync only on most third party units). The hot-shoe is E-TTL II compatible. Compatible flashes include Speedlite 220EX, 380EX, 420EX, 430EX, 550EX, 580EX, Macro-Ring Lite, MR-14EX, Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX and Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2.  The Canon Rebel XTi doesn't have a PC socket to plug in a manual flash trigger cord which common sense tells me there is no provision to step up the voltage to trigger manual flashes - so my answer is this combination is not a good idea on a Canon Rebel XTi. Hope this helps.

Ricoh KR10 Super


Try a camera shop that still repairs obsolete camera's, if you have all the parts it can be fixed or replaced ( top cover ) with a good used one . If your KR10 has a flash socket on the front of the camera buy a flash bar and use that. Be sure the loose wire from the hot shoe is not touching anything.

Hot shoe loose


Canon typically hides the screws under the metal plate on the shoe itself. You have to free it at the front and slide it back to get access to the screws holding the shoe

Failure of flash sync in F828?


I experience similar failure sometimes. I un-mount the flash (or adapter) from the hot shoe and put it back, and am back in business. The reason is, at least in my case. loose contact, resulting from movement of the flash/adapter in the shoe.
