Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
My camera shows the icon that the flash is on but when I take a picture that is in the dark, the flash doesn't work. What could be wrong? Thanks, Laura :)
In order to repair the above mentioned error you should replace the flash circuit board part number:A1166208A.Price for the spare part is 35 Euro (for my account). If you need more info please advice.

Hello Laura, Try to hard reset the camera at first. This can be done by removing the battery and pressing the power button for about 1-2 min (keep it pressed). After that, press every other button twice (including zoom, menu and shuter buttons). Then press again the power button for about 1-2 min. After that reconnect the battery and go to auto-settings. If this doesn't work there is a problem with either the camera's firmware or the internal flash capacitor. Either of these will require service intervention because they will need to dissasemble the camera and run a diagnostic. This shouldn't be an expensive repair IF the camera doesn't show on the screen an error message something like E:16:00 blinking (when you take pictures). If this is the case, the flash assembly is damaged and needs to be replaced (this costs about $50-$60) otherwise it should be cheaper. For more informations please reply back.

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).
