Camera want flash sony dsc-h3


If it flashes when you take any photo then you have the flash set to manual override for each shot or you're just shooting in areas too dark for any photos without the flash. Check your flash settings or try a factory default reset from the camera's menu options.

How do you repair when the flash in DSC-H3 is not responding?


Hi,

Check if the Flash unit in the Camera is popping up automatically.
Check if the Flash is set to Flash Forced Off. If it is set to Off, then set it to Forced On.
Please check if the Camera is not set to the following settings:
REC MODE is set to Burst or Exposure bracket mode.
Scene Selections modes like:
ISO High Sensitivity mode.
Advanced Sports Shooting mode.
Twilight mode.
Fireworks mode.
Set the flash to Flash Forced On when the mode dial is set to M or when Landscape mode, Beach mode or Snow mode is selected in Scene Selection mode.

This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SONY CYBERSHOT DSC - H3 DIGITAL CAMERA FLASH PROBLEM


Hi Jim,
Have you tried resetting all settings on the camera? On a Sony camera, it is called "initialize". The initialize setting is found by going to the menu, and tabbing down until you find an option called either "reset settings" or "initialize settings" and then confirm it.
Many times that will fix the issue, in case something has either been enabled/disabled on accident, or the software is sticking (which happens from time to time)

Sony cyber shot DSC-H3 flash


The same problem just appeared to us. We decided that it is a software bug and we reset the camera with the following combination:
Home ->Settings(the toolbox) -> Main Settings 1 -> Initialize.

This fixed the problem.

Have in mind that all your settings will be lost (but not the pictures).
