If the built in flash is not working it might just not be worth repairing. Sony products when they are working are great but when they go down they can be a bear to fix and the cost is usually prohibitive when you combine the labor along with the price of the part.
Taking those cameras apart is real nasty business, with lots of real tiny screws and ..............U can either get a new camera or replace it with a used, working one on ebay - that is what I did.
Go to Menu/ Home and initialize camera to reset it for factory default settings to fix flash light settings bug. If problem still not solved, let me know do you see any error code flashing in top right corner of lcd?
Do you mean a DSC H5? If so, at the top of the control button there should be a symbol that looks like a lightning bolt with a arrow on the bottom. Push that to go through the various flash settings. You can get the manual here:
I recently had the same frustrating problem. The top of the camera has a little black button that can change from continuous mode or single picture mode. It has to be on single picture mode to change the flash setting. After this is changed you can press the flash setting onthe dial and change the setting. I hope it works for you.
Things to check before you assume it is a mechanical issue-you can get vibration message if flash is disabled, be sure also that the macro mode is not enabled-this is very common on sony cameras to turn on by accident-flower button on camera will put in close up mode and you will get blur make sure no flower is present on lcd screen-if in macro press button on camera w/flower to turn off-also in menu you have continuous and monitor auto focus settings try changing one or the other and see what happens
