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.
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.
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....
