Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A200 Digital Camera
Sometimes if I turn the camera off then on again it will take one shot, then Flash shorts every time i press button to take a photo. Any Idea's please. Camera is about 5 yrs old but not been used much.
Are you shooting in low light? Sometimes the flash will fire multiple short bursts to aid in focusing. If the camera is not in focus, then depending upon your setting it will not fire.

The same problem just appeared to us. We decided that it is a software bug and we reset the camera with the following combination:
Home ->Settings(the toolbox) -> Main Settings 1 -> Initialize.
This fixed the problem.
Have in mind that all your settings will be lost (but not the pictures).

Have you tried resetting all settings on the camera? On a Sony camera, it is called "initialize". The initialize setting is found by going to the menu, and tabbing down until you find an option called either "reset settings" or "initialize settings" and then confirm it.
Many times that will fix the issue, in case something has either been enabled/disabled on accident, or the software is sticking (which happens from time to time)
