    I am experiencing the same problem with my camera, I had taken several picturs requiring the flash when after the 3 pic this error message appeared and the flash stopped working. I have read the solution but I apologize for my ignorance but I do not understand what it is I need to do to fix this. Could this be clarified a bit more as to what it is I should do to correct this problem with my camera. Thank you!

    i have the same problem - the flashing "flash" sign and the E:91:01 error message, the lense also seems to be getting stuck when it goes in and out.

    thanks - jenny

Problem is with the high voltage capacitor charge circuit. the internal battery voltage is stepped up to around 4 thouseand volts. this voltage is necessary to jump the electrode gap inside the xenon strobe tube which is the flash component

E91:01 Constant flash sign on Cybershot DSC-W80


Press Menu button
togle across from REC Mode to setup
togle down thrice from camera to setup 1
togle across into sub menu
togle down from four times to Initialize
togle across again to the sub-menu
togle up from cancel to OK
press center button to accept the OK choice
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.

Flash Error


The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the flash up and pointed at you ( like you are going to take a picture of yourself) the pin is located on the right side close to the where the flash attaches to the camera. Yo should see a little pin sticking up. make sure that area is free of dust and /or debris. if it is not up then that is the problem. try to free it with out braking it or get it professionally repaired.

Guys - I just recevied a new H9 today. Was using it and decided to turn the flash off. Later on I wanted to turn it back on and I got the famous "flash settings cannot be changed" error message. I found the problem. I had turned on the "continuous shooting" option as I wanted to see how fast it would take photos continuously. When that option is on, you cannot use the flash so therefore you cannot change the flash settings. I put the camera back in "single-shot" mode and now the flash works fine. I hope this fixes your issue.

Thanks, Ken
