Hi Guys

The error code your are refering to is a flash error code from the camera`s self diagnostic function. By seeing the error code you can be certain the flash unit inside the camera is faulty.

Sorry nothing you can do yourself. Take it to your local Sony service center. Repair cast should roughly be one fifth or sixth of what you paid for the camera.

Good luck

Does not flash
It may be switched off. There could also be a break in the wiring to the flash. Without more, there's no way to know.
The first step would be to verify that the flash has not been set to "off" in the flash mode.

Will not take photos or videos other functions work. when switching on LCD display flashes on then off

Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Turn on your camera without the memory card.

I had this exact problem with the same camera.
Here is how I got my flash to work.
Go to the play button, press menu.
Then, Go to setup and scroll all the way down to reset all...

HELP 350d still not turning on/screen not working

Hmmm... doesn't sound too good does it? Have you tried another CF card? I know you said it doesn't work even without a card but...

Also one last thing to try is to tkae out both batteries, the main one and the slim watch style backup battery that sits right next to the main one under the cover labelled CR2016. Leave them both out for an hour and see what happens. NOTE this will probably reset your camera to factory defaults and may reset the photo numbering counter back to zero. Worth a try?

Flash issues

It means that the battery is charging the flash! Wait a while and it should stop. Then take your photo.

Do make sure your battery is fully charged.

Red Flash mark while taking photo

It sounds to me like you are not waiting for the camera to charge the flash when turning the camera on or between shots. It seems you are using 1700mAh batteries and most modern digital cameras are better off using 2500mAh batteries. Your camera was released in September 2006 so it is considered "modern". With 1700mAh batteries, your flash (warm-up) recycle time time will be rather long or the amperage may not be enough to fully charge the flash unit. I highly recommend Duracell 2500mAh rechargeable batteries.

Camera Wont turn on and blue light flashes

The possible answer is that batteries are past thier best now and even a 'full' charge is not delivering enough power. treat your self to new batteries.

Canon A75 stuck between ON & OFF after uploading photos

My Canon A75 has the EXACT same problem. I have always handled it with care. When I was taking photos with it, the camera suddenly started shutting down without a low battery warning. It just started shutting down, but it stopped with the lens still sticking half way out. Like yours, the top green light flashes when I try pressing the power button. Any ideas?
