Hi

the flash doesnt flash anymore, you may need to replace th bulb for that. the yellow light means its a warning that the bulb is wor out.

If you need a flash unit there is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of used parts for all the Sony Cameras at reasonable prices. I bought a good LCD for $39.00 plus shipping, put it in myself and it works perfect. He even sends you pictures as he takes the camera apart so that you can do the same when you relace it. I think his email is gerald.ray@aa-ark.com

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.
