Question about Digital Cameras

Flash I have a sony cybershot DSC-W50. Everything has been working fine until one day it stopped flashing. I have tried pressing the flash options button, but nothing happens. However, whenever I turn the camera on E:91:01 and a little squiggly arrow flash. Please help me! I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-S90 and the flash stopped working several months ago. Everything else works fine. Any solutions?

I think the firmware is corrupted ..... you must install new firmware ....
just visit the nearby showroom or technician he will install the new firmware ..........
for installing firmware it may costs some 300 to 400 bugs ....
how ever there may be other problems too may be the battery is dead just change battery and check....
check whether it is detecting in pc or not..........

SONY CYBERSHOT DSC - H3 DIGITAL CAMERA FLASH PROBLEM


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)

Flash error on sony cybershot


Try to resetting (initializing) it. But if the problem repeats soon, look for service.

Flash off sign.


I had a similar problem, where the only option on the menu for the flash was off. I initialised the camera (reset everything), and the flash options have reappeared, and it now appears to work fine (initialise is in the settings menu from home).

Flash will not flash


Sounds like you need a new flash unit. It could be the system board, but this is not likely if you are not getting an error message from the camera.

Flash stopped working


I had the same problem, "BBWS" found this "solution":
Turn the camera on as if to take photos (not to review photos).

Press "Home" (upper left corner)
Press the camera tab (bottom left-most tab)
Press "Scene Selection (SCN)"
Press "OK" at the "Select type of scene" prompt

However, I still don't have flash available in the PGM or AUTO modes, which tells me it is still broken.

Did you try to reinitialize? Setup menu go down to the third Setup#1 menu and make sure you click OK to reinitialize. That's what the manual said.
