Whilst attempting to mount my flash on a bracket and tightening the securing knurled part I dropped the flash and bracket and I have broken the contact base above the knurled part.

I have just put some glue on it, but I doubt i could trust it.

Where would be the best place to send the flash for repair.

My first incident in 5 years but still feel horrid.

Thank you for any ideas

You can buy the base part. Simple to replace, a screw or two and a simple pull conector. About £40 for the part.

Luton Cameras can usually supply Olympus parts.

I broke mine too in the same place.

Luton cameras supplied the replacement foot and I fitted it myself .... not too difficult with a very small cross head screwdriver.

Hi,

I can't remember much but I did find my 2010 email response from Luton ... I think it has lots of useful for you .... between the dashed lines.

I was wrong about the screws, they are very small torx on mine.

Re. OLYMPUS FL-36

We have the Foot and Lock Ring in stock (recommend these are changed together): 10.00, incl P&P.
This will require disassembly of the foot, which can be tricky (The Foot is not supplied with the contacts, which would have to be changed over).

or, if you want change the Foot Base Unit this would be the four screws and a connector (push fit) from the main circuit.
Foot Base - VG121400: 16.44 + 3.50 P&P.
We have the Foot Base Unit on order, ETA 3~4 weeks.
