Hi, The flash on my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 is very inconsistent. If I take multiple pictures of the same subject, the flash only seems to work sporadically. Tried resetting everything, and waiting until the camera beeps after it's focused in on the photo. The camera is in AUTO mode.
Love the camera, but the randomness of a working flash is annoying.

If you have your flash set to "red-eye flash", it will fire "pre-flashes" to prevent redeye in your subjects. You can turn off that feature and set it for normal flash. As far as shutter delay is concerned, all you need to do is press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then you can re-compose the picture and press the rest of the way when the moment is right.
Hi! 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 email@example.com or contact your local Sony service center. I work in a Sony service center.
