Can't get FL-50 to fire on E-M5

Got my first big problem on the E-M5. I can't persuade the FL-50 to fire.
Note - FL-50, not FL-50R
- The Orange flash symbol shows in the top right of the screen
- Doesn't fire in any flash mode
- Tried several camera modes incl 'S' mode with shutter speed 250 and also 'P' mode
- Tried full reset on camera
- Flash shows TTL and responds to focussing
- Flash works fine on E-P2
- The little flash that comes with the camera works fine
- Tried cleaning contacts
- Tried powerup camera then flash and vice versa
- I have 1.2 firmware
- It worked a month ago.

Any ideas anyone, or does it have to go back?

m4/3: E-P2, EM-5, 100-300, 14-42mm 12-50mm, 45mm, panny 14mm. 4/3: 7-14 + Flashes & tripods & stuff
