Re: Cyber-shot DSC-W80

The camera is probably is "Burst" mode where you hit the picture button and it contineously takes the picture. Hit menu and look to see if you have it set to burst mode if so take it off and it will work..I just found the answer on here :)

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90. When I try to change the flash settings, a notification pops up on the screen saying, "Flash settings cannot be changed." I tried setting it in each mode (including Auto)...

Go to Menu/ Home and initialize camera to reset it for factory default settings to fix flash light settings bug.
If problem still not solved, let me know do you see any error code flashing in top right corner of lcd?

Sony cyber shot dsc-t70 unable to change flash setting

The Flash Off setting is fixed and cannot be changed if you are using one of the following modes:
  • High Sensitivity, Twilight or Fireworks Scene Selection
  • Burst or Exposure Bracket REC Mode
If you are using one of the above modes, change the setting to regain flash control.
NOTE: If using Scene Selection modes, the ISO setting is also fixed to ISO AUTO .

Activate flash

Here is the solution: Flash cannot be used in burst mode! You must set the camera to single shot mode!

This really surprised me, since in my old Konica Minolta the burst mode did not prevent flash, it just took a single picture if the flash was activated or multiple pictures when the flash was disabled.
