My DSC-W80 camera won't take pictures with flash on. If flash is off or isn't needed in auto, the camera will take pictures fine. But once I turn flash always on, the camera will focus but won't actually take the picture.
I've tried initializing camera and checked that it isn't in burst mode but it still doesn't work.

Re: Can't take picture with flash on
Your flash is defective and needs to be replaced, nothing else will fix the problem.
One solution is to look online for a defective camera and use the parts to fix yours. Another is to buy a flash from someone like us who sells new and used parts and performs repairs if you can't do it yourself.

Set camera on playback mode, you will see any saved picture in internal memory. Insert memory card and lcd screen will show you either blue screen if memory card has no picture files or will show you picture in memory card. That means memory card is intact with camera and ready to store fresh picture. Set camera to camera mode and take few fresh pictures and check them in playback mode. Let me know if you have additional question. Thanks.
Low light without a flash will always cause grainy pictures unless you have a very high end camera that can shoot at very high ISO speeds like 6400 and up.
Try changing the camera from the green camera 'auto' setting to "P" and then press the Menu button (I think it's Menu) and look for the different mode settings. There should be one for Night or Night Portrait or similar, I can't recall Sony terms and I don't have one here to check sorry.
Your other option is to use the flash, try it with Red Eye turned on if possible.
DSC-W80 sybershot camera has facility when you insert Memory Stick in its slot, it automaticaly selects this memory card and starts saving data on it and internal memory got suspended.
Pls check memory stick 2GB and inert it correctly in memory slot in camera.
I have a DSC-W80 CyberShot I had a problem with the error code on the LCD Screen that said E:91:01. I played with the camera for a little bit and found the if you push the home button and go to settings. When you get to the settings go to main settings, When you get there go to initalize and follow the instructions. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE YOUR PICTURES OR TAKE THE MEMORY CARD OUT OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL THE PICTURES. I hope this will help you.
The camera is probably is "Burst" mode where you hit the picture button and it contineously takes the picture. Hit menu and look to see if you have it set to burst mode if so take it off and it will work..I just found the answer on here :)
