Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T33 Digital Camera
Camera is in great shape besides the flash not working. I can't believe how expensive it is to repair ($180+). My question is if I order the replacement part is it relatively easy to fix yourself? Anyone have experience with this? I see an internal crack on the flash bulb itself, so I'm pretty confident this is the problem.
The strobe element is often the problem in this camera, if the glass tube cracks or breaks the strobe will no longer function. This part is not difficult to change but please be aware that the capacitor that fires the flash often remains charged and will hurt you if you contact it. Please be careful if you attempt this repair. I have a 10K resistor that I attach to this capacitor to discharge it before working in these circuits. Good luck to you.
