Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F505V Digital Camera
The built-in flash on my camera quit working. The problem started out with the flash working almost all the time, only occassionally neglecting to "flash." However, now, the flash has stopped working altogether. Can anyone tell me what the problem may be? Also, I saw on the "Specifications" for this camera that there is an "external flash" option. Where is the "hot shoe" for an external flash to be placed? I have never noted one.
First, I have the same problem. Sometimes works, sometimes not. As I see, the jack hole is at the rightbottom side of the camera, under the round, 4 arrow button.
Arpi, would You be so kind to tell us the soul-tion? Here is the camera taken apart, I hoped it will be some minor, connection problem, but everything seems to be good. Please help me and us!
Thanks, Mark (are You from Hungary? Mert én igen)

Yes, there is a hot shoe on the most upper part of the camera (slightly hidden). The problem with your camera is not a complicated one. Please contact your nearest Sony Service. If you need more info, please advice. Arpi

The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
