Hi, My new H7 came with the flash setting to off, when I try to change it with the wheel I get a message that flash settings cannot be changed, this happens no matter what mode the camera is in. Nothing in the manual...THANKS in advance!

If the built in flash is not working it might just not be worth repairing. Sony products when they are working are great but when they go down they can be a bear to fix and the cost is usually prohibitive when you combine the labor along with the price of the part.
Taking those cameras apart is real nasty business, with lots of real tiny screws and ..............U can either get a new camera or replace it with a used, working one on ebay - that is what I did.
The red is the reflection of your flash on the retinas of your subjects. The white are generally animal eyes reflecting back.
You will notice this on flash shots only and mostly when you use the zoom. The zoom uses a "narrow" field of view so the light that reflects back is "direct", instrad of at an angle.
The fix: Change the ISO setting (it is set too high). It is probably near the maximum sensitivity (3200?)... set it to 400 or so and try that for a while. 800 is probably the best general setting, but try 400 first.
Try not to use the flash unless you really have to, but only if the subject is less than 12 feet away. If no people are in the picture, you may use the flash for subjects greater than 12 feet.
I recently had the same frustrating problem. The top of the camera has a little black button that can change from continuous mode or single picture mode. It has to be on single picture mode to change the flash setting. After this is changed you can press the flash setting onthe dial and change the setting. I hope it works for you.
Things to check before you assume it is a mechanical issue-you can get vibration message if flash is disabled, be sure also that the macro mode is not enabled-this is very common on sony cameras to turn on by accident-flower button on camera will put in close up mode and you will get blur make sure no flower is present on lcd screen-if in macro press button on camera w/flower to turn off-also in menu you have continuous and monitor auto focus settings try changing one or the other and see what happens
