Sony Cybershot DSC-H7 - can not change flash settings

I have the camera listed above and have tried to change the flash settings in every single mode that there is available, however, it still tells me that flash settings can not be changed. The only mode the flash will work in is twilight portrait, and even then it has a certain setting it used and I cant change it. Any ideas?

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.

Another solution is to reset the original default settings ....
in the main settings menu ...go to initialize...
the cam will turn on with its original settings....and flash will work properly

Another solution:

Turn camera on
Move slide to center position (still image)
Press Menue
Press controll button left until you arrive at (camera) settings
Press control button down to select (Auto)
Press Menue button

This should remedy "loss of flash" problem.

Good Luck,
Dan

Trying to change flash settings but says 'flash settings cannot be changed' with a warning triangle. I am in the 'Green Camera' setting on the dial on top


Hello. I have a solution for you. You have your camera set to "burst" mode, which does not use flash. Reset it to "single" mode and you will be able to change the flash settings. Regards, Joe. PS Please rate my answer. Thanks.

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

Flash settings Sony DSC-H7


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!!

Flash settings Sony DSC-H7


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.

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).
