Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera
The flash does not work .i have reset the camera and checked flash is set up right and cannot get the flash to work . it looks like the flash bulb may have broken can anyone recomend some one to repair this please. my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera flash doesn't work. i just use it with flash on at that moment the flash was working fine and after a minute i switch to ISO. at that time the flash was off. then after a minute i switch again to another mode that the flash was on. after i click it, the flash doesn't work any more. i didn't drop it. did i do wrong to the camera. what should i do? i already reinitialize it and nothing happen. do i need to repair it to someone who's expert or there's other way? please help me. thanks
I had the same problem with my flash not working on any setting, but I found a way to fix it: hit the menu button, make sure the "rec mode" choice is set to normal instead of burst. I think the burst mode takes multiple shots in a row, so the flash isn't compatible with that setting?

Look at which setting you are useing when you stwitch modes some of them dont use the flash and i belive you cannot turn it on in a sertian sceen selection.

remove the battery for 15 min and see it that does it if not you might have jared a board loose. or broke loose a solder joint. It can be fixed but with out proper diagnosis I can not be positive of what is broke.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Hope the advise is useful.
