Question about Olympus FL-50 TTL Flash

1 Answer

FL-50 Repair Hi, I was shooting a wedding recently when I dropped my E-510 with the FL-50 attached to it and the tinycycler. The tinycycler was around my neck and I was thinking it was my camera around my neck... needless to say, disaster!! The camera appears to be fine, the flash however, pulled apart just above the hotshoe breaking off the screws and the wires are showing. There is a little white connector that came loose, I'm not sure what to do. The flash doesn't even power on. Does any one know a reputable repair shop? This is a brand new flash, first time I used it. Thanks for the input.. Nellie

Here is the part that you need.

It will take some fiddling around with very small parts to get that installed.
Or you can send it in to Olympus- I know a couple of people that have been charged ~$50 for the repair and Olympus also reconditions everything as well.
Cheers.

Non-syncing Olympus FL-36


Hey I have an E510 and an fl 36 flash unit and no problems for a year now.
And no problems at all {knock wood]!
Have you checked to see if all the flash pins are making contact?
Normally I only turn my flash on after I put it on the camera and then turn the camera off and then on again to see if everything is ok. I remember the flash would not communicate with the camera on a shoot and after a while I realized that the flash was not all the way in the hot shoe. Fool around with the flash off the camera first and see the flash have modes that you have to set up if the mode is set in full manual that might be a problem. There is a button that you have to hold down for three seconds to get in the menu. My buttons are fine and have not faded any at all. I realize that the power button an the flash is hard to press on, I do hope I was of help .GOOD LUCK
