My Sony DSC-W330 np flash E:19:01 flashes on the display


Just quote previous answer:
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!)


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My sony cyber shot dsc-s750 the flash is not working charging an never charge


Hi there, If you have tried all the flash settings and still no flash: this unit has a fuse on the flash board that may be open or the capacitor that holds the charge for the flash also may be shorted. A service shop could give you an accurate estimate.

Time for new flash??


the camera's light sensor or metering system, for correct flash exposure is no longer working, that's why your shots is either black or white (overexposed or underexposed) the flash firing has loose its control because of the defective sensor, it now only depends on the charge current of the flash capacitor. If you'll wait longer time the charge is maximum picture result will be overexposed(white), and vice versa, less charge, dark result, have the flash assy replaced. Daylight no problem, it doesnt use the flash circuitry, thanks
