Press Menu button
togle across from REC Mode to setup
togle down thrice from camera to setup 1
togle across into sub menu
togle down from four times to Initialize
togle across again to the sub-menu
togle up from cancel to OK
press center button to accept the OK choice
Screen changes and so press okay again
It should restart the camera
Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen
togle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function.
If it is still not working do not worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is generally a software error message and not a hardware malfunction.
If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.

Hi

From what I know from running a digital camera repair shop, even if you replace the flash you will have to clear the error message from the camera. This takes a special cable and software... you can make the cable yourself and get the software online for free but I can't post a link to it sorry.

If you search e:91:01, the listing for "agoraquest.com" has a detailed post about how to do it.

You can try switching out the flash for a working one and hope that it clears the error message, you might be ok, won't know till you try.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

When i on my sony cybershot dsc-w35 a"E:91:01" msg will display in screen,and flash is not working


A letter and number error code of E:61:xx , E:62:xx , or E:91:xx is an indication a malfunction has occurred in the camera. To try resolving any of these error codes, power reset the camera back to the original factory specifications.

I'll forward a link to a page where you can view the information about power resetting the Camera.

Please click on the link to open the page to view the troubleshooting steps.

Flash will not flash


Sounds like you need a new flash unit. It could be the system board, but this is not likely if you are not getting an error message from the camera.
