I had the same problem, here is how it was "fixed" on my camera:

Turn the camera on as if to take photos (not to review photos).

Press "Home" (upper left corner)
Press the camera tab (bottom left-most tab)
Press "Scene Selection (SCN)"
Press "OK" at the "Select type of scene" prompt

However, I still don't have flash available in the PGM or AUTO modes, which tells me it is still broken.

    Check for burst mode, the flash is disabled in burst mode.

You should have the dealer check the camera. The flash unit may be defective.

By default when a camera is new out of the box, it should work as full automatic with the flash.

I have a sony DSC-T200 and the flash won't work. It doesn't even give me the option of turning it on. What do I do?


I had the same problem.
Touch "menu" then under the "rec mode" change from burst to NORMAL.
Then you can touch the flash icon and turn the flash on.

Flash off, no flash


I had exactly the same problem, very annoying.
The camera does not need a new tube, transformer or flash board, it only thinks that you are in the wrong mode and won't let you turn on the flash. Do the following to avoid the problem:
1. Touch "menu" then under the "rec mode" change from Burst to NORMAL.
2. Touch the flash icon and now it will be possible to turn the flash on...

Flash off sign.


I had a similar problem, where the only option on the menu for the flash was off. I initialised the camera (reset everything), and the flash options have reappeared, and it now appears to work fine (initialise is in the settings menu from home).

Sony DSC H3 Flash not poping up?


Dear Frac1969,
There are many reasons when flash isn't poping up. Flash selection could be OFF from menu or its setting is Auto. Are you geting any error message in camera when you try to use Flash function?

Flash can not be turned on


I had the exact same problem as Dude2891 and it took me ages to work out what was wrong. The problem turned out to be that when I first got it and was playing with the menus, I managed to put it on burst mode, and in burst mode flash is automatically set to off. So you need to turn it on, press menu bottom left and scroll to REC mode (the first option) and then check that you're on Normal not Burst. That fixed it for me!

Hope that works guys, let me know how you get on.
