Flash settings Sony DSC-H7

I am not sure what I have done.
When I go to check the flash setting, "Flash Settings cannot be changed"comes up on the LCD Display

When trying to change my flash settings I get a message on the LCD saying "Flash settings cannot be changed". I've tried changing the settings in every mode and nothing has worked. What else can I try?

I had the same problem with my DSC-H9. The flash setting is set off when in BURST record mode. Go into MENU, scroll down to REC Mode, change it back to NORMAL.

Now go shoot someone or something... with your camera of course!!

Okay, I figured out the answer to my own question!!!!! The REC mode has to be set on normal in order to change the flash settings. If it is set on burst you will not be able to change the settings.

My flash went out on my (DSC H7) Sony Cyber Shot camera I need a replacement


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.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90. When I try to change the flash settings, a notification pops up on the screen saying, "Flash settings cannot be changed." I tried setting it in each mode (including Auto)...


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?

How do I turn my flash on--I have a sony cybershot DSC HF camera! Thanks!


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:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DSC-H5&region_id=1

The 'Read This First' file is a quick guide to using your camera and is also available on that page. And, if you didn't mean H5, then you can change the model.

Flash options for sony camera


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.

Error E91:01 on DSC H7


If the camera works in all other respects, then that has something to do with the flash setting or some other setting in the menus. But this sounds like something with the flash directly.

Here is a link which may be able to help on the DSC H7: http://www.aakatz.com/whitepaper/whitepaper/appendix2.htm

Try also to reset all the menu setting back to what it was for the factory. Most digital cameras have a setting for that, and usually is something like "RESET ALL" or something close to that.

If nothing works, then the camera needs repair. This is an error to do with the flash only, it appears. So some of the internal parts could be weak, thus causing the error.

Cybershot H7 focus problem


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

Sony Cybershot DSC-H7 - can not change flash settings


for anyone who wants to know how i solved my problem with the flash saying it cannot be changed...

If you go into the camera settings; look under rec mode. It might be in "burst" mode. Flash will only work while in "normal" mode.

I had this same problem. Go to Home / settings / main settings / initialize. This resets the camera and you will need to reset the date-time.

Cannot change flash setting


Hello, i just fixed that problem yesterday.
You just have to enable Burst mode.
You click on Menu, then you go down once, to the REC Mode, and you take the first choice (normal).
