    I have the same problem and I have been looking at some threads on this.  Seems to be common and looks like it may have to be sent back to Sony for repair.  Hmmm only just bought the camera second hand. Disappointing, it seems like a great camera otherwise.

I just bought a used camera with the same problem, I had it working when I was trying it out by flicking the lock tab under the flash. Then when I got home it wasn't popping up so I made sure that the battery was fully charged just in case it was a power issue of not releasing the flash lock. It still acted up then I gave the camera a few knocks on the bottom and now it works, for how long I don't know but something is sticking to cause not to release.

Your flash setting is on "Manual".
[Menu]
[Flash]
Use the "arrows" to change from manual to automatic.

How do you repair when the flash in DSC-H3 is not responding?


Hi,

Check if the Flash unit in the Camera is popping up automatically.
Check if the Flash is set to Flash Forced Off. If it is set to Off, then set it to Forced On.
Please check if the Camera is not set to the following settings:
REC MODE is set to Burst or Exposure bracket mode.
Scene Selections modes like:
ISO High Sensitivity mode.
Advanced Sports Shooting mode.
Twilight mode.
Fireworks mode.
Set the flash to Flash Forced On when the mode dial is set to M or when Landscape mode, Beach mode or Snow mode is selected in Scene Selection mode.

This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If your camera have automatic flash setting, when its bright enough, your camera flash won't ON. Or your flash lamp has broken. It can be repaired at Sony service center.
Hope this help

SONY CYBERSHOT DSC - H3 DIGITAL CAMERA FLASH PROBLEM


Hi Jim,
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)
