That's not possible because the hot shoe is not provided for the Canon hot shoe. You can change some wires in the Canon flasunit to let it think is an Olympus model ;)

I can't find a replacement main fresnel panel for my Canon 550EX. Any suggestions?

Canon often won't sell replacement parts like this to consumers but you may get your local repair shop to order one for you or find a dead one on Ebay or Craigslist and use it for parts.

Canon 550 ex speedlight - flashes okay. Won't sink with 60d (tried different cameras at dealer - same problem) Camera is okay .

Try these steps:
1. Set camera to manual2. Set shutter to 1/60
3. Set aperture to F5.6
4. ASA/ISO 200
5. 550EX on hotshoe
6. Do not set on slave or master
7. Turn on flash

Display must shows, ETTL.
If that doesn't work, you have to use the flash on manual.
Some of this model will not work fully on ATG Canon EOS-1D C, ATG Canon EOS-1D X IR, Canon EOS-1D X/60D/T4i because this flash is over 20 years old.

Unless you would want it to be modified by me.
But that can be costly when you can get the 580EX II for less than $425.00 USD.

Can I use the Canon Speelite 550EX TTL with a Nikon D3

No. the Nikon and Canon flahses and camera speak different "languages" in TTL. So while the flash may fire once in a while, the TTL (Through The Lens flash metering) will not be compatible and the exposures will almost never correspond and synch up. Get a Nikon SB-900 flash.

Olympus E10 pins bent on compact flash slot

That is correct. The camera should default and detect that a smartmedia card is now inserted to the camera and write the images to that card. As I stated earlier, the cards are independent of each other.
