The problem is with one of the capacitors, Sony can replace it for you at a cost of $80. This error can come, if we click photos continuosly, the capacitor may get heated up. We need to give a gap of 3 to 4 seconds. Time to be given for the flash to get recharged after a click.
Just give a call at Sony help line. 800.222.SONY, they will replace the capacitor.

If its worth the cost, go for the repair, or you can use the device without flash by disabling the flash. At setup just disable the flash and this error wont show up again.

Sony cyber-shot dsc-w50 problem


Hi!
It's a flash error. Could be flash fuse or flash board. If you have a multimeter and you're ready to open it, contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com or contact your local Sony service center.
I work in a Sony service center.

E:91:01


I've had my dsc w50 for about 2.5yrs and its just started the same milarky! Go to menu, set up 1 and re-initialise, it cleared for me then came back again. Went through the same process just now and error has gone for time being, although I think the flash is on its way to heaven. Some pictures are dark and others completely white out!!

Taking it in to the sony shop tomorrow to see if they can lend any advice - I hope it doesn't mean a new camera as I've not over used it....

Let me know how you get on
