    I also am experiencing this problem. I brought this camara for my girlfriend and a month later E:91:01 displays on my screen. I have reset the camera a number of times and still no joy. Unfortunately I have not got the receipt anymore and it is going to cost a fortune to get it fixed apparently. Any other options?

    I sort of have the same problem.. Except I don't get any error codes or anything. The flash just won't work. It's not on burst, I've tried everything and I can't get it to work. The camera is only 2 weeks old.

I have a DSC-W80 CyberShot I had a problem with the error code on the LCD Screen that said E:91:01. I played with the camera for a little bit and found the if you push the home button and go to settings. When you get to the settings go to main settings, When you get there go to initalize and follow the instructions. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE YOUR PICTURES OR TAKE THE MEMORY CARD OUT OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL THE PICTURES. I hope this will help you.

Initialized. But after entering the clock settings, the flash still not working. It is like trying to charge up the flash, but failed. Then the error code appeared. Guess I have to send back to the shop to repair. Probably slightly more than 12 months old. Seldom use. Sony product so lousy?

When using flash it takes a couple of seconds to take photo hence picture is blurred


It's probably because you have enabled the slow sync flash mode.
To switch to the normal flash mode (auto flash) press your left directional key until the flash mode indicator near the top left of the screen (an icon with a "lightning" symbol) changes to an icon with a letter A next to the lightning symbol.
The slow sync flash mode is different from the normal flash mode; in this mode, the camera exposure duration can be a few seconds and the flash actuates at the beginning of the exposure. Although this is useful for certain photography techniques, you have to enable normal flash mode to take pictures in the normal way without blur.

Perform the following troubleshooting steps to check whether the issue is resolved.
1. Remove the battery from the Camera for 1 minute. Re-insert the battery in the Camera and check if the issue is resolved.

2. If the issue is not resolved, then try initializing the Camera.
The Initialize option is listed in Setup or Settings option in the Camera.

Camera fails to flash every time we take a picture


1.Turn off the camera.
2.Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera. then turn it ON
3.Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash. a86196b.jpg
4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12


I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

Wont take a picture unless I turn off the flash


Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

G9 flash


In your display, is the small lightning symbol appear on the screen? Try cycling through the various flash options by pressing the "flash" lightning symbol to the right of the monitor. If the flash is set to flash when there's not enough light at the G9's descretion (with an "A" next to the symbol) then the flash may or may not go off. I oftentimes set the flash to go off all the time if the camera is not doing it automatically (with the A next to the symbol). Being in Auto mode versus the other preset exposure modes affect the flash options available too.

There is a "quick" button located on the back of the camera just for flashes. It is the first button to the right of the power button and it looks like a crooked lightning bolt arrow that points down. If you are in any picture taking mode, push this button and it will toggle you through each flash option, auto, red eye (eyeball symbol), flash (same symbol as the button, this mode will make the flash work everytime you take a picture), red eye and flash, and no flash (careful, in this mode you have to allow for the camera to focus, the lens will stay open a long time in a dark atmosphere -- if you don't hold the camera still you will get a blurry picture).
