Possible censor fault but it could be worse if the flash was not working at all.

SOURCE: Sony DSC-F828 Faulty Flash

Try resetting the camera. It is next to the battery release. I had a similar issue and posted help. No remedey. So, after praying about this issue, I was lead to power it down and eliminate all the power by taking out the battery push the power button and many others. I found the reset button pushed it and it is all working now. The praying for a solution was key. Praise Jesus. DRD

As you haven't said which shooting mode the problem occurs under (e.g. Auto, Scene etc) I can only suggest that you try different shooting modes to gain access to changing the Flash settings. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: DSC H-5 the flash pops up but does not flash,

Flash pops up shows that flash release mechanism is working as camera wants to flash.
There are 3 thick wires connecting between flash bulb and flash charging circuit in camera, one of thick wire seems internally broken and causing problem.
Camera will be apart to check wires.
Let me know, if you are willing to apart camera, for further help.
Thanks.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera suddenly flash is not working


The flash may be broken.
If not these are the flash settings on the camera in case a different flash mode has been set accidently.

Set the mode dial to [camera icon], and press [up arrow] on the control button repeatedly to select a flash mode.

The flash mode has the following features.
No indicator (Auto):
The camera decides to use the flash based on lighting
conditions. The flash will be used when
there is not enough light or when shooting a
subject against a light source.

(Forced flash):
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient light.

(Slow synchro):
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient
light. In this mode, the shutter speed is
slower under dark conditions, so you can
clearly shoot a background that is out of the flash-lit area.

(No flash):
The flash will not be used.

1.Flash Auto - Flashes when there is insufficient light or backlight ( Default Setting )

2.Flash forced on

3.Slow synchro - The shutter speed is slow in a dark place to clearly shoot the background that is out of flash light.

4.Flash forced off - ( Your current mode ).The flash automatically pops up and strobes when using the flash.Close the flash by hand after use.

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?

How do I turn my flash on--I have a sony cybershot DSC HF camera! Thanks!


Do you mean a DSC H5? If so, at the top of the control button there should be a symbol that looks like a lightning bolt with a arrow on the bottom. Push that to go through the various flash settings.
You can get the manual here:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DSC-H5&region_id=1

The 'Read This First' file is a quick guide to using your camera and is also available on that page. And, if you didn't mean H5, then you can change the model.
