I have a sony cybershot dsc w55 with error e:91:01. i have pressed the reset button and initialised the camera numerous times. the error is removed but the camera will not take a picture in auto or p mode...


E:91:01 is an error code that indicates problem with flash unit circuit in camera.
Flash unit board will be replaced to resolve this problem and temporary fix is to set flash Off quickly, before error could appear after initializing camera, hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

If it is still not working dont worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is related to a software error message and not a hardware malfunction. If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.

I tried using my camera using auto flash but no flash came out. Error E:91:01 keep on flashing in my camera.


This may be solved by doing a reset to the camera. There is a setting in the menu called Initialize, and it should reset the camera back to factory default.

Word of warning though. You will lose any pictures on it when you do this, so download them first. You will probably have to re-enter the date and time after this as well.

Error E91:01 on DSC H7


If the camera works in all other respects, then that has something to do with the flash setting or some other setting in the menus. But this sounds like something with the flash directly.

Here is a link which may be able to help on the DSC H7: http://www.aakatz.com/whitepaper/whitepaper/appendix2.htm

Try also to reset all the menu setting back to what it was for the factory. Most digital cameras have a setting for that, and usually is something like "RESET ALL" or something close to that.

If nothing works, then the camera needs repair. This is an error to do with the flash only, it appears. So some of the internal parts could be weak, thus causing the error.

DSC W55 Error code E:91:01


I've had the camera for about 2 years. Have had this problem twice. All I've done is follow the manual to reset/initialize the camera's original settings. After that it works pretty good.
