    I recently got a lightly used FL360L from a forum member here and for some reason, it doesn't seem to work properly with my GX1. At least not once the lock lever is moved into place. TTL, Auto, and everything seems to work, until I switch the lock lever over to locked. Then it seems to lose all communication from the camera. The only modes available are A, M, and RC and it won't fire no matter what. When I have it on the hot shoe but still unlocked, it appears to work just like it should. Slave mode also works fine, btw.
    Any ideas? Or anyone else with this flash and a similar Panasonic body care to chime in? I don't have any other bodies to test on.

    When I first got mine I was not pushing it in to the hot shoe far enough. Had similar problems of it not seeming to work (this was on an EM-5) though.
