This camera has four flash modes and each time you press the button the mode changes. As you press the button you should see the indictor in the upper left side of the screen.
1. In automatic flash, the camera will decide if you need flash or not. This mode does not have any indicator on the screen
2. Forced flash, this will cause the flash to be constantly on. The indicator looks (kind of) like a lightning bolt.
3. Slow Syncro, this mode slightly delays the flash and is used to lighten up the background more the foreground. The indicator looks like the lightning bolt with SL next to it.
4. No flash, this will turn off the flash. The indicator looks like a lightning bolt enclosed by a circle with a diagonal line through the lightning bolt. (similar to a no parking sign).
If you don’t see the indictor changing on the screen the switch behind the button is malfunctioning.

Hi, the flash in question will not work in TTL mode even though it has contacts on the bottom that may indicate that it could...... so it will work in auto or manual mode but not adjust itself. All adjustments will have to be made manually.

Hi Guys, Looks like your advise took care of the problem. I adjusted the power knobs for each of the RGB guns on my Sony 51 inch projection TV. The color looks great and I don't seem to have the blinking indicator light bugging me any more. I will be sure to suggest you folks to anyone with these type of technical questions.
