Flash does not light up

I have a FZ72 (which is very similar to FZ70).

The flash does not work. If I open it, the camera recognises it and also preloads the flash. But if I press the button to take a photo, the picture is taken and no flash lights up.

I assume the cables could be broken, because for some time the flash only worked, if I pulled the case of it a bit backwards.

My question is, what is the tiny blue device behind the flashlight. Also there are 4 cables altogether. Which could be broken? Is it possible to fix it at all?

Hi @hilfs08,

Check the capacitor and the connections to the capacitor are OK. This component provides the power for the flash to operate.

Unfortunately this did not help. The cables to the flash are covered on the flash-side by rubber, so you cannot measure anything. However I tried to discharge the capacitor and it recharged after turning on, but still no flash. :/

I assume the cable is broken somewhere, but since it is tightly attached to the light itself, I would have to find a new set somewhere...
