Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dsc-w70 no flash!

That's the same camera as in my last post, the one with battery problems. After fixing those the flash started not to work, instead the camera gives a e91:01 error code. The camera can take photos and other functions work properly. As I dissasembled the camera I noticed that the flash capacitor is fully charged, all components in place but still no flash. I can't relly on the services here, and also a would like a DIY solve as I have the proper tools to make this repair. Also, how to reset this camera? If it's firmware related,can a firmware upgrade be found?

Re: dsc-w70 no flash!

Hello Bogdan, reseting and firmware upgrade will not help. Replacement of the flash unit is the only solution. Price for the flash unit is 50 Euro (for my account). If you need more info, please advice. Arpi

Sony DSC-W70 How do I use black and white colour option??

I found out how to do this at last, you turn the dial to P instead of auto, then when in picture taking mode instead of playback you click menu, B&W is one of the options that comes up first! So simple but it took me ages to find!!
