Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Flash not working

So my W50 has been "broken" for a while now.

The flash won't work, the yellow light flashes, as if it is trying to charge up the flash. At first I thought it was because my battery was low...

Anyway, I tried to restart/ initialize it and the flash sill won't work!!

HELP

E91:01 is the code the camera provides to the service technician to tell him which part of the flash is not working.

In your case if you have a DSC-W50 camera you are lucky as this flash unit is replaced as a complete assembly.

Contact your nearest Sony dealer. It shiuld not cost more than 1/5 of what you paid for the camera - so should be worth while fixing.

Good luck.

My flash is not working.


Have you dropped the camera before?
If so, the bulb of the flash mechanism in your digital camera may have been knocked loose or broken.

Try cycling through the flash modes, forced on/off, automatic, red-eye, etc. Replace/charge the batteries; flash sometimes doesn't tend to work when it doesn't have enough energy to charge.
Try going to a dark area and seeing if the flash is at least emitting some type of light, if not, bulb itself could be the problem. After trying all of these steps, and you can't see that the flash is emitting ANY type of light what so ever, you can safely assume that the bulb inside the flash is defective or broken.
If that's the case, the only way you can fix that is by calling up Kodak and their support center and seeing if they can repair it for you.

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.


The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.

E:91:01


I've had my dsc w50 for about 2.5yrs and its just started the same milarky! Go to menu, set up 1 and re-initialise, it cleared for me then came back again. Went through the same process just now and error has gone for time being, although I think the flash is on its way to heaven. Some pictures are dark and others completely white out!!

Taking it in to the sony shop tomorrow to see if they can lend any advice - I hope it doesn't mean a new camera as I've not over used it....

Let me know how you get on

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.
