I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90. When I try to change the flash settings, a notification pops up on the screen saying, "Flash settings cannot be changed." I tried setting it in each mode (including Auto)...

Go to Menu/ Home and initialize camera to reset it for factory default settings to fix flash light settings bug.
If problem still not solved, let me know do you see any error code flashing in top right corner of lcd?

Can not change my flash setting

I found on another site advice to format the internal memory.
1) Remove the memory stick
2) press menu
3) There's a tab for memory management with a Format option. Format the memory

This seems to have worked for some people. Others said they had to format the memory stick (same steps as above), but with the stick still in.

Niether of these worked for me.

But I did find an "intialize" option on the set-up menu that restores the original defaults.

After doing all 3 of these things, the flash will now work in all modes.

Flash options for sony camera

I recently had the same frustrating problem. The top of the camera has a little black button that can change from continuous mode or single picture mode. It has to be on single picture mode to change the flash setting. After this is changed you can press the flash setting onthe dial and change the setting. I hope it works for you.

My DSC-T100 won't allow any changes to the flash setting.

The flash settings on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T100 are Auto, Forced Flash, Slow Syncro and No Flash, if it is not giving you a flash and wont allow you to change the setting you might have to talk to sony or the store you bought the camera from. One long shot would be that depending on what other features you are using on the camera, i could be set up to not allow you to change the flash settings in that "mode". Sorry if this is useless, but good luck and if all else fails use sony support! :)                  

stupid hyperlink not working :(

Flash not working?

I found this solution on another site and it worked for me. Good luck!

hi - thanks - you're right. I called SONY
last week. They told me to reset, as you describe. here's also what I discovered - the flash locks you out in Burst (fast frame) mode. The flash can't recover that fast. Out of Burst mode, you can control the Flash. Isn't it a much better camera with the flash?
Enjoy your W80! Thanks, Jim Connecticut, USA

Flash settings Sony DSC-H7

I had the same problem with my DSC-H9. The flash setting is set off when in BURST record mode. Go into MENU, scroll down to REC Mode, change it back to NORMAL.

Now go shoot someone or something... with your camera of course!!

Flash settings Sony DSC-H7

Okay, I figured out the answer to my own question!!!!! The REC mode has to be set on normal in order to change the flash settings. If it is set on burst you will not be able to change the settings.
