    Recently my flash will only fire once. That's it. I leave the camera for a while, turn it off, take out the battery then maybe it will work again. But only fire once.
    Has this happened to anyone else? When I put my FL-36r on it works fine.

    The fact that your other flash works fine says that the small flash is probably defective. I can't imagine a camera setting, etc. that would cause that to happen.

    I just did a factory reset. Problem remains. Oh well, I guess I'll give Olympus a call.
