Great explaination.

I tried this reset, but the error came back. Read in other posts that it is a "flash capacitor" problem.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot Super Steady Shot DSC-T10. I have 2 babies under 2 years old and every time they are doing something adorable I can't get the shot because my delay on my camera is so long they are...

It seems the Red-eye reduction feature of the flash is ON. In this mode, the camera emits a pre-flash and then the actual flash discharges after a delay. Or it could be on Slow Sync. In this, the flash fires at the end of the exposure. Just go to Flash modes (the lightning-like icon) and if it is showing an eye-like icon or the word 'slow', change it to some other mode, probably the flash ON or OFF mode. Also, make sure that the batteries are fully charged.

If this solves the issue, please rate this solution.

Sony cyber-shot dsc-w50 problem

It's a flash error. Could be flash fuse or flash board. If you have a multimeter and you're ready to open it, contact me at or contact your local Sony service center.
I work in a Sony service center.

Sony cyber-shot dsc-w50 problem

When “FLASH error” (Self-diagnosis Code E : 91 : ** ) occurs, to prevent any abnormal situation caused by high voltage, setting of the
flash is changed automatically to disabling charge and flash setting.
After fixing, this setting needs to be deactivated. Flash error code can be initialized by the operations on the Setup screen.
Method for Initializing the Flash Error Code
Initializes the setting to the default setting.
1 Select [OK] with v on the control button, then press z.
The message “Initialize all settings Ready?” appears.
2 Select [OK] with v, then press z.
The settings are reset to the default setting.
• Make sure that the power is not disconnected during resetting.
