    Since new i have always used my OMD in conjunction with my array of Nikon Speedlights, but recently they have all stopped working and when placed in the hot shoe become frozen and im un able to navigate menus or even turn them off, they hold power until i slide them off.

    I only have the small pop up flash from Olympus and that works fine, seems like somewhere along my travels something has effected the hot shoe connection.

    Has anyone else experienced something similar to this with their OMD or had a similar issue with any other camera and can help me out?

    I've used my Nikon SB600 in manual mode in the hotshoe of my OMD with no problems
