Please when you want to shoot a picture in dark condition and you want to use a flash, don't put the camera in the night shot mode. In that mode the camera will choose the highest ISO, the lowest speed and the widest aperture, and won't use the flash. Please check the manual for every mode, what it does and what it not does. Your camera is in perfect state and does what it supposed to do.
ISO is not really a "mode", every photo you take has an ISO rating; it's one of the three main ways of controlling how light or dark a photo is. (The other two are shutter speed - how long the sensor is actively capturing for, and aperture - how wide is the hole (aperture) that the light passes through.)
You can think of the ISO rating like a volume control - it's how sensitive the sensor is. At ISO 100 the sensor is at its least sensitive - you get the smoothest picture but you need lots of light to do it. At ISO 800 and higher, your sensor is most sensitive - your camera will take pictures in lower light, but there will be more 'noise' - meaning the speckled effect you get on digital pictures.
It's similar to the volume control on a radio. When you have a strong local station you can turn the volume down, and you'll still get a great quality sound. But if you are trying to pull in a distant station, you turn the volume up and put up with a bit of hiss just to hear what they're saying.
Just the same with a camera. When you have strong sunlight, you can turn the ISO down and you'll get a great picture. But if you're trying to pull in a dark photo, you turn the ISO up and put up with a bit of speckling, just to see the image.
The flash in the Camera can be enabled to Flash Forced ON by pressing the Up Arrow control button on the Camera. Press the button continuously to select the desired settings.
Make sure that the Camera Mode (REC MODE) is not set to Burst or Multi Burst.
Flash will not work when the Camera is set to ISO High Sensitivity mode or Twilight mode in the Scene Selection.
The flash will not work in Movie Mode also.
When using the Landscape, snow or Beach mode, set the Scene Selection to Flash Forced On.
This should resolve the issue.

Please turn on Cyber-shot in camera mode and press Menu, select Mode, select Normal, OR got to Camera Mode Selection Button (top of camera near power button) and select Auto (Green Color) symbol. Problem would be solved.
Noisy pictures = High ISO in almost all cases. Select ISO manually (select a manual mode where you can control the ISO) and set it to the lowest possible value. To avoid camera shake, place the camera on a tripod or another sturdy surface; or use the flash
I suspect that the color is fine in the screen, if that’s true I would check the “White Balance.” This control is use to compensate for different light sources. The electronics will respond different for sunny or cloudy days and for incandescent or fluorescent lamps. I suspect that it was taken out of AUTO mode. I find that AUTO works well for most people in most situations.
Select photo or movie mode press menu, select WB, select AUTO.
