One source is http://www.adorama.com/FASHOE.html for about $2 plus shipping. It says it's for SLRs, but a hot shoe is a hot shoe, as far as a cover is concerned.

CCD failure


Sell your camera for spare parts, the fault requires a professional repair costing far more than the camera is worth. Note that you'll get more by selling the battery, body caps (hotshoe cover, sync socket cover, lenscap) and camera body as separate items.

How do you synchronize a non olympus flash unit to an olympus e 500


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.

In side flash not working


Unless your camera remains under warranty, repairing the flash is usually not cost-effective. Repair is not a DIY option and it must be done professionally. If you visit the Olympus website in your country and go to the service page you will often find that there is a fixed price repair menu on offer.

You may find it's cheaper to fit an external flash to the external hotshoe especially if you can buy a good used flash, but you must ensure that you either use an Olympus or Panasonic model; you may use other independent makes such as SunPak or Metz (expensive, but really worth it) but must ensure that they're suitable for digital cameras. Older flashguns designed for 35mm film cameras can pass too much voltage through your digital camera and damage it. You may also need to activate the external flash hotshoe via the menu as on most cameras it's inactive until selected. Note that an Olympus/Panasonic badged unit will give you full automatic operation, but if you use independent models then you will have to set everything yourself for "non-dedicated" models, and on more expensive "dedicated" models you may have fully automatic operation or may have to enter some settings manually. "Dedicated" flashes are those which have electronics and features tailored to particular camera brands.

Although an external flash is bulkier, the trade-off is that even lowly specified models will far exceed the output of your built-in flash. This enables you to use flash at greater distances and also provides more even illumination of the subject.

My digital camera olympus fe 100 broken battery cover


Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $56 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

No, the camera only has the hotshoe. You have to obtain a hotshoe to PC connector "cube", like this:

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.

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.
