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)

My sony DSC-w120 digital camera flash is not working.Please tell me how to rectify the same

If there is error message on the display and blinking flash, try to initialize the camera. If the problem persists or there is no error message, there is probably no user solution, camera will have to be repaired by service personnel.

My sony camera DSC-W320 has an error message E:91:01 error message flashing and flash don't work

Flash capacitor in the camera did not charge in specified time. You can try to initialize your camera and wait if it will charge - if problem persists, there is hardware damage and it will have to be repaired by technician (do not try repair it by yourself - high voltage!)

I'm getting an error message of E:91:01. I still

E:91:01 is a flash unit error, probably meaning your flash is inoperative .
Try settings, main menu, setup, initialise.
If this does not work, then new flash module required.

Error E91:01 on DSC H7

If the camera works in all other respects, then that has something to do with the flash setting or some other setting in the menus. But this sounds like something with the flash directly.

Here is a link which may be able to help on the DSC H7:

Try also to reset all the menu setting back to what it was for the factory. Most digital cameras have a setting for that, and usually is something like "RESET ALL" or something close to that.

If nothing works, then the camera needs repair. This is an error to do with the flash only, it appears. So some of the internal parts could be weak, thus causing the error.

Hello, this error message means that there is an melfunction in angular velocity sensor, peripheral cicuits. Simply speaking steady shot function does not work well. Please contact nearest Sony Dealer. Best regards, Arpi
