The fault may be a simple setting that may have been changed, have you checked your Manual to see if you can disable the flash? Is the flash disabled?

If no, take it to a Camera Repair shop (can be sent through any Camera Retailer) and get a quote to fix it, then decide whether it is economical to fix or better to buy another camera.

Note: this is still a "good" camera for it's features, so don't rush out and buy another camera unless you really want to.

Good luck.

I bought a Sony DSC t700 approximately 6 months


If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
To set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness, press the UP ARROW on the control button until a lightning bolt icon appears on the LCD screen.

If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
When shooting MPEG movies
When set to the Twilight mode
If an external flash is connected
If in the Burst or Multi Burst mode

Please touch the MENU option on the screen of the Camera.
Then, select the REC MODE under the MENU.
Then, select NORMAL under the REC MODE.

If you're not able to select the NORMAL under the REC MODE, try Initializing the Camera.

First, please touch the HOME on the LCD screen of the Camera.
Then, select the SETTINGS in the HOME menu.
Then, select the MAIN SETTINGS under the SETTINGS.
Then, select the Initialize under the MAIN SETTINGS.

If the issue still persists after performing the troubleshooting steps provided above service of the Camera is required.

It's required to physically examine the Camera to determine the exact issue at the service center.

Built-In Flash Not Working


Hi, I am certainly not an expert, however, I was having problems with that also. In addition, my viewfinder was almost black & white with a greenish tinge.

Come to find out there is a reset button inside where the battery is. You might try taking the battery out and leaving it out for 5 min. or so and see if this works. It fixed mine but not the screen. Then I tried the reset and that did not work. Then I took the battery out and then it worked!

When you reset the camera, you will have to re-enter your setting, ei, dates, etc.

Hope this helps.

DSC-F717 autofocus stops working


I was first going to also suggest a reset. Does your manual focus function correctly from near to far(turning the focus ring in manual) and does the wide to tele motion function fully and smoothly? (lens adjustability without restriction) Was your camera exposed to extreme heat or elements?(beach sand or water of any kind) It may mean electronics only or a mechanical restriction causing an electronic malfunction. A last resort may mean your closer documenting when or how frequent it happens and maybe ultimately a trip (for your camera) to Sony. Get a price quote for repair since you might strike a happy medium of using the camera differently (manually focussing) without exceeding the value of the camera for repair costs.
