How hard is this camera to disassemble? The flash doesn't work

How hard is this camera to disassemble? I know from experience sony doesnt make their stuff very novice friendly. Also, the A-1444-049-A ST block, is that something that is connected by a cable, or something that will need to be soldered? Basically I am trying to see if this is something I can do for $40, instead of paying sony $90 to fix their faulty camera

How to disassemble a digital camera?

Woody...why do you want to disassemble your camera? This is not recommended unless you have experience working with small parts, have the proper tools, and don't care if it doesn't work after you put it back together. There are videos on YouTube showing various repairs requiring disassembly of a camera you can watch and help you decide wether you want to attempt it yourself.

Hello, I cleaned out my sony vaio VGN-A790 fan and after having done so it doesnt boot up, screen doesnt turn on and fan doesnt spin. however the motherboard and hard drive is getting power. all...

The first thing that I would try to do is to reseat your ram modules. Remove both ram modules, blow out the ports in case of dust, and then put them back in again securely. If this doesn't correct the problem, try it again. If the problem still persists, then you need to disassemble the laptop and reassemble it, checking for loose connections. There's also the possibility that an improperly placed screw is shorting out the motherboard because it's too long for the hole and is touching something, or that the heatsink isn't secure on the CPU.

E:61:10 is flashing and zoom doesnt work..I tried the reset and turning it off and then on... but still doesn't work...I have (hybrid plus 25x Sony)camcorder

Listen, I know you are not going to believe this, but the lens is stuck because there is something binding it. The most popular method for freeing this up is to smack the lens about three times, not real hard, but give it a couple of good ones and this should free it up. After you do this make sure to hold it lens down in case something needs to fall out and clear itself out. You should be good to go. I am not kidding, this works...

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Sony DSC H2 flash will not flash, no error messages. Flash pops up but does not flash. Settings have been checked to verify that flash is set to operate

this is a typical flash circuit failur, you can prove to find on ebay a brocken camera like your, to diosmount the entire flasc eletronic bloc and instal this on your camera. or prove if you finde the flasc bloc on ebay international seller. is probably you can find it in usa.. how many seller in usa sell camera parts. but one flasc circuit if you buy it original can cost 45 -50 euro. its probably that if you find a faul camera you can buy it with a lot less money. if you have a little knowledge to disassemble eletronic apparats , you can prove alone. disassemble to first the brocken camera so you can see wher you must work to not brocken anything. the better is if you disassemble the brocken camera make with anothe camera a film of the disassemblement, and later this help you to riassemble the camera and repair it.
sorry for my bad englsh. but i am shure that this is a eletronic defekt

The flash doesn' work


Either your flash unit is defective and needs to be replaced, or the mainboard is defective and causing the flash to not work. The only way to know is to start with the flash and replace it, if that doesnt work its the main PCB.
