    Pen F flash sync problem

    I acquired an Olympus Pen F on RFF a while back with the intent to use it for impromptu portraiture at gallery openings and what not...so with a flash stopped down, most likely. It was obvious that someone had taken it apart when I got it (the red index for the shutter speed dial was UPSIDE DOWN X(.), but that was an easy fix.

    When I tried this, the flash wouldn't go off. I assumed it was a bad/corroded connection wire, but when I opened the camera up I couldn't find any wire. Nothing connecting the PC sync to anything...so? Does anyone have a picture of how this is supposed to look so that I could maybe reconnect it? Thanks!

    If it's a plain Pen F, wire runs down into the heart of the shutter, where the flash contact is located. Would require complete disaassembly to get to it. John
