    I can't get my clip on flash that came with the camera to work. I do not see a place to check the batteries. Is there one? Any thoughts on troubleshooting the flash. I tried putting it in fill mode and it is not working even though the manual said it should always fire and I am shooting into a dark corner.

    I assume this is for an OM-D. There is no battery. It uses power from the camera. It has to be raised to an up position to work. Did you raise the front up?

    Also you need to set a flash mode to something other than "no flash" mode.
