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:



  1. When shooting MPEG movies
  2. When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  3. If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  4. Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  5. Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  6. 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..


  • If the issue persists, please reset the Camera and make sure that battery is fully charged.
  • If the issue persists after performing all the above-mentioned troubleshooting steps, service is required.


Thanks for understanding.

Problem with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S730 Digital Camera Model DSC-S730 Camera flash is not working


You must verify how you set the flash: auto, on or off. Set it "on" and try it. If it not work so, it's out of service. In "auto" mode it's possible to not work sometimes because light sensor.

Sony CYBER -shot DSC-w190 does not flash when taking picture although flash auto on


It will only flash when there is not enough available light when in AUTO flash mode.
To flash no matter what, go into the camera setting and select that choice.
Normally something like demand flash or a symbol that looks like a lightning bolt. Then it will flash every time. That does use more battery power though. By the way, I like that setting better too.

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.

Sony Cybershot DSC-H7 - can not change flash settings


for anyone who wants to know how i solved my problem with the flash saying it cannot be changed...

If you go into the camera settings; look under rec mode. It might be in "burst" mode. Flash will only work while in "normal" mode.

Flash settings Sony DSC-H7


I had the same problem with my DSC-H9. The flash setting is set off when in BURST record mode. Go into MENU, scroll down to REC Mode, change it back to NORMAL.

Now go shoot someone or something... with your camera of course!!
