conditions. The flash will be used when
there is not enough light or when shooting a
subject against a light source.
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient light.

light. In this mode, the shutter speed is
slower under dark conditions, so you can
clearly shoot a background that is out of the flash-lit area.
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:

If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
If an external flash is connected.
Please make sure that the Camera is not set to any of these modes. You can check the manual to get the information to change the setting..

Try resetting the camera. It is next to the battery release. I had a similar issue and posted help. No remedey. So, after praying about this issue, I was lead to power it down and eliminate all the power by taking out the battery push the power button and many others. I found the reset button pushed it and it is all working now. The praying for a solution was key. Praise Jesus. DRD
I have an old cybershot 4.1 MP camera. Its LCD screen is lit but no menu or other buttons work. I can not view what I am shooting but it does take pictures when I point and shoot and the flash works too. The T and W controls work too. I can transfer whatever pictures it takes to my PC. How can I get the LCD display to work?
