    So I've treated my Oly E-500 pretty in the time I've spent with it. Which is why it came as such a great surprise when I lost flash functionality. My on-board flash will not fire, on auto or manual. Though my external FL-36 works on its own when I test fire it, but when I try to use it on the hotshoe, it doesn't work.

    Is there any fix for this? I'm told I could be charged upwards of $300 just to get the problem diagnosed. Hopefully I can avoid this.

    Sounds like a shop job to me. Have you tried a reset?

    do you mean a factory reset like in the menus? or are you talking about something else?
