Hello Bogdan, reseting and firmware upgrade will not help. Replacement of the flash unit is the only solution. Price for the flash unit is 50 Euro (for my account). If you need more info, please advice. Arpi

Not sure what you mean? You have 16 single shots one after another Now what do you want to do? Turn the camera back to single shot? Read the Manual -Full manual in PDF format on disk Do something with the shots themselves? Use image editor in computer Do none of these? Try another way of putting the question

Hi Jim,
Have you tried resetting all settings on the camera? On a Sony camera, it is called "initialize". The initialize setting is found by going to the menu, and tabbing down until you find an option called either "reset settings" or "initialize settings" and then confirm it.
Many times that will fix the issue, in case something has either been enabled/disabled on accident, or the software is sticking (which happens from time to time)

according to sony support you should try first to reset your camera to the default factory settings. You can find the article here:

and here is the manual for your camera:®ion_id=1

If you look into page 131 of the manual you can find your problem, and on page 85 is described the reset procedure: you should go to menu/settings/main settings/initialize/ then OK
Let me know if this helped you. Bye

I have a sony cybershot dsc w55 with error e:91:01. i have pressed the reset button and initialised the camera numerous times. the error is removed but the camera will not take a picture in auto or p mode...

E:91:01 is an error code that indicates problem with flash unit circuit in camera.
Flash unit board will be replaced to resolve this problem and temporary fix is to set flash Off quickly, before error could appear after initializing camera, hope this info will help you.

Hello, can the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 be used as a webcam?

i was dissapointed that the sony dsc 707, 717 and one of the small pocket models similar to yours (cant remember model) would not support that. i even sent sony a letter explaining that some of my other cameras (like olympus) did do that .. they replied (surprise) that theirs did not .. i checked your model s700 and it doesnt look like it does either .. at least it doesnt mention it in the manual. on cameras that do support USB live video out, you have a choice in setup .. you can select that mode for the USB port ...
