Re: flash

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.

Try turning camera on,
Then press both Green buttons for a count of 10. This should restore factory reset.

Some models also have a reset button under a connector flap, or go into your menu. Under Custom Setting Menu, choose Menu Reset.

One of these methods should work.

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.

No Flash

Pull the battery and memory card and keep them out for a while. If you are confident you could successfully open and reassemble your camera you could attempt to open it up to dry it out.
Otherwise, take a can of compressed air and point the nozzle tube in the cracks around the controls/body and attempt to dry it out...
You could shake it a bit like a thermometer... to use centrifugal force to remove water...just don't drop it or bang it..
Your best bet is to open it up or have someone help you with that..

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.

Flash not working

If the settings was correct, force flash or autoflash, and while pressing shutter button halfway the flash indicator lit, and firing the shutter no flash(not firing). then flash assy is defective, and needs replacement. thanks

you mean the flash is not opening or coming out of its enclosure? if its not opening up, its stucked! try inserting a small plastic card into the flash compartment. a hook is holding the flash from coming up like a door lock. its near the shutter button side; if its up and not flashing take a look at the bulb, if theres a change in color its dead already. dead bulb can be checked by shooting on autmode (the green mode), dead bulb will gonna shoot but flash wont go, if the flash circuitry is bad it wont shoot no matter what.

Cannot toggle Flash Mode

look for the 3 boxes icon (multiple shot mode) on your lcd screen at the top. Toggle the button for this (by the shutter button) until it goes away. this has 3 modes. My wife does this all the time!
