Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Hello, My W50 Cybershot has a Flash error coming up after my wife accidently dropped it on vacation. When I have it on and shooting photos, it constantly has the E:91:01 error flashing on the screen. I have tried to initialize the camera and it always comes back after a few seconds. Thank you in advance for the help. L. Kansas.
I have a method to stop the E:91:01 error flashing on the screen.it were not solve the flash function but atleast you can use the camera without flash. 1)at setup do a initialize. 2)go to flash function to turn off the flash (must do it fast,b4 the E91:01 appear,if not you need to reset it again ) by now E91:01 will never appear.you can use it like normal,be sure not to turn on your flash again or go to night mode.if not you need to perform step 1 & 2 again.hope it help.

I got it rectified, using sony service center. They say, one of the capacitor damaged. They have replaced it. Mine is in warranty. They say, actual cost would be in INR 4000/-(for your information to compare).
They say, this error can come, if we click photos continuosly, the capacitor may get heated up. We need to give a gap of 3 to 4 seconds. Time to be given for the flash to get recharged after a click.

Customer support at Sony may help- but it seems the drop did it no good at all. The chances are a new camera will be the cure

Screen changes and so press okay again
It should restart the camera
Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen
togle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function.
If it is still not working do not worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is generally a software error message and not a hardware malfunction.
If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.
