Hi guys.
I took the camera to Sony repair center. They wanted to charge me 65/hr to repair plus parts. I asked, How much do you think it could cost to fix it. tops? He said I don't know, depending on what we have to change. I said tell me, maybe 100 , 120 he said it could be!
The camera new, they are going on sale for $199. I said forget it.
I took it home. Took it apart. I moved the flash card a bit and it started working. I am assuming something came loose and it is working fine now. I saved myself over $100 bucks. Ha, ha.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera suddenly flash is not working

The flash may be broken.
If not these are the flash settings on the camera in case a different flash mode has been set accidently.

Set the mode dial to [camera icon], and press [up arrow] on the control button repeatedly to select a flash mode.

The flash mode has the following features.
No indicator (Auto):
The camera decides to use the flash based on lighting
conditions. The flash will be used when
there is not enough light or when shooting a
subject against a light source.

(Forced flash):
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient light.

(Slow synchro):
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient
light. In this mode, the shutter speed is
slower under dark conditions, so you can
clearly shoot a background that is out of the flash-lit area.

(No flash):
The flash will not be used.

The flash on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 is not working. I did not drop it or anything, but suddenly every picture that should have a flash doesn't. The little screen shows that the flash should go off but...

You camera may be in 'auto'flash' mode, meaning the camera decides if the flash is necessary, depending on the lighting situatioin. Try your flash setting on forced flash instead of automatic, or try it in the dark to see if the flash goes off.

I can't figure out how to set my flash to "force flash" aka fill

Turn the setting to M or manual, and push the flash open. You will have to set the camera settings yourself though.
