How did you determine placing a shim behind the capacitor might solve your difficulty with intermittent flash? Did you read somewhere that is a common problem on these cameras? Did you see a loose connection to the capacitor? Thank you.

I have heard from a few photography repair places that the capacitor comes loose over time and tapping the bottom usually fixes it (temporarily). Most stores will not repair it since a new camera is cheaper.

I found that the tapping on the camera only works for so long... since I could not easily get to the connector to hard solder it into place the shim seemed like a reasonable patch, and it seems to be holding up fine.

Very good. Now I understand.
