Its really strange.

Im trying all settings and the flash does not trigger.

The camera does trigger the little clip-on flash though.

Also my old EP-1works fine with this flash.
BTW the name of this brand is: ACHIEVER. Quite pretensious.

All I can add is to check the hotshoe contacts of the E-PM1 for any oily deposits or oxidisation and clean them off (sometimes even new cameras come with some contamination on the contacts). The little clip-on flash would fire even with a dodgy hotshoe, since it only uses the shoe for physical mounting - the electronic and power contacts are done purely through the AP2 port connection.
