Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Will not flash. 6 mos. old. great camera. Getting error code E:91:01. Tried resetting. Don't want to send back to factory unnecessarily.
I've had the camera for about 2 years. Have had this problem twice. All I've done is follow the manual to reset/initialize the camera's original settings. After that it works pretty good.

I contacted Sony, they had me send it to Laredo, Texas. I got it back in about 2 weeks. Cost me about $30.00 or so for shipping out there. I received it back, with mumbo jumbo talk, and a list of parts. I week later, SAME PROBLEM! I refuse to go through this again! I'm pretty much done with "Sony", and I own about 5 varieties of their cameras. When you figure the cost of the camera, losing use for a couple weeks, and the shipping, it's just not worth it, to do same again! I think their customer service is very poor, having to send from Florida to Texas, and wait 2 weeks or more!
