Flash flickers... I have a Sony Cybershot, and I always have the flash on. Now whenever I take a picture the flash never goes, it flickers a little bit but not enough to get a good picture. Its on normal setting, not on burst. Do I have to replace the bulb or what do i do?

I honestly never came across anyone who had a flash replaced usually because most companys flat rate out of warranty repairs at 100-125 dollars-if it's a p series camera it sounds like the flash is dying or the battery is worn out and not supplying proper voltage to allow it to fully fire-i would consider buying a new w series w150 is great or 120- if battery is fine then flash is just shot-even old memory sticks won't work in new models so you also have to buy a new card

I have a sony cybershot DSC-P200. I am having problems with the flash. Sometimes it works and sometimes it goes off but the picture is black or only partially lit. Can you help?


HI,

I suggest you to set the Flash to Forced Flash ON by pressing the UP ARROW button on the Camera while capturing the images. This will enable the flash settings in the Camera to ON which will help you to capture all the images with the flash on.

Good Luck!!

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)

i think the firmware is corrupted ..... you must install new firmware ....
just visit the nearby showroom or technician he will install the new firmware ..........
for installing firmware it may costs some 300 to 400 bugs ....
how ever there may be other problems too may be the battery is dead just change battery and check....
check whether it is detecting in pc or not..........

Flash not working...


I have a DSC-W80 CyberShot I had a problem with the error code on the LCD Screen that said E:91:01. I played with the camera for a little bit and found the if you push the home button and go to settings. When you get to the settings go to main settings, When you get there go to initalize and follow the instructions. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE YOUR PICTURES OR TAKE THE MEMORY CARD OUT OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL THE PICTURES. I hope this will help you.

Did you try to reinitialize? Setup menu go down to the third Setup#1 menu and make sure you click OK to reinitialize. That's what the manual said.
