Question about Sony HVL-F56AM TTL Flash

1 Answer

Can not set or change mode on Sony HVLF56AM flash.

All the buttons in the HVLF56AM flash are not working when I try to change the setting (even I can not turn it off) but only + and - buttons ( when switching back to default.). Could anyone help me?

Thank you,
QN

You probably have the control knob turned to "Hold" which prevents accidental changes to the settings. It happened to me too.

I can not change the flash setting on my camera


I'm sorry that the flash on the Camera is not working. If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
  • When shooting MPEG movies
  • When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  • If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  • Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  • Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  • If an external flash is connected
Please make sure that the Camera is not in any of the above modes.
Try initializing the Camera. To initialize the Camera, please use the Initialize option under Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera.

Can't turn on my flash on my sony cyber shot dsc w200. when i try to change the flash it says that my flash settings cannot be changed. what do i do?


Hi,
Let's try some troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue with the Flash in the Camera. The Flash in the Camera will work only with the settings which is selected.
1. Make sure that the Camera flash is set to Forced Flash ON. (Press the right arrow control button of the Camera continuously to select the Forced Flash to ON.
2. The Flash in the Camera cannot be used when the REC MODE of the Camera is set to BURST or EXPOSURE BRACKET. (To select the REC MODE, select Menu button in Camera Shooting Mode. Set the REC MODE to NORMAL).
3. Flash will not work with modes like ISO(High Sensitivity Mode), Twilight Mode, ISO+(Extra High Sensitivity Mode), Fireworks Mode.
4. Try to set the Flash Mode to Flash Forced ON when the Mode dial is set to M, Landscape mode, Beach Mode, and Scene Mode.

This will resolve the issue with the Flash in the Camera.

Thanks for using FixYa

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! :)

Flash problems


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.

Sony Cybershot DSC-H7 - can not change flash settings


for anyone who wants to know how i solved my problem with the flash saying it cannot be changed...

If you go into the camera settings; look under rec mode. It might be in "burst" mode. Flash will only work while in "normal" mode.

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 forced off


The Rectangles with a 'M' in it is the Multi-Burst mode. U must select 'Normal' Mode. Try this:
In the Autoshoot mode --> press menu --> Change back to 'Normal'.
You will now get rid of the rectangles with the 'M', and you can change your flash settings.
