Question about Cameras
I have several cameras that I have been refurbishing and reselling. I recently have attempted to refurbish one that had an error code E:91:01 with no flash function. I replaced the flash board and re-initialized the camera. The code persisted. I then replaced the main board and re-initialized the camera. Still got code. Replaced the ribbon connectors between the boards, no improvement. Returned all cannibalized parts to original cameras, code has now migrated to previously known-good cameras. There is obviously a procedure for resetting this code that is needed when the flash board is disconnected from the main board. I discharged the flash capacitor as directed in the Sony Level 2 Manual for this model with a 1Kohm/1W resistor for 10 seconds before disassembly. When I re-initialize, the screen shows a flash icon with an orange flashing indicator that lingers for a while then beeps repeatedly before disappearing. The camera will work fine except there is no flash function. It shows the same indicator and symptoms after re-initializing with no flash board installed, suggesting that the flash circuit is not even being recognized when installed.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
Try to go to setup menu, select the toolbox icon 1 and select "INITIALIZE" click OK. Master reset and it should go back to normal.
