Flash not working - Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Dec 16, 2008

    I have used my sony cyber-shot P73 for about 3 years. I used the flash once in a dark place and it was fine. The next picture wouldnt flash. Ive tried using the flash on many different settings and it wont come on. The camera hesitates like a flash should be going off but doesnt. I even tried reseting the camera itself, charging new batteries, many different things. Can anyone help me? I really didnt want to take it to someone this close to the holidays. Thanks, Michelle

Canon sx 150


Hi
1. The flash on this model Canon works only if you manually raise the flash. It does not rise automatically, and is only on the raised flash.
2. Flash on the module has a switch - it sometimes fails and then flash "does not understand" that she had to get involved.
3. Not working flash capacitor charging circuit - usually after any water
4. Flash lamp is not working - usually after a light blow
5. Command does not work (a piece circuit) from the processor to light the lamp flashes - after a blow or hit the water.

If you follow steps 1 - Raise the flash and the camera is turned on in the menu mode - "shoot with the flash" - but your flash does not work - the rest can fix broken only engineer to repair.

Cannot get the flash to work.


If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera flash may be turned off or it is set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly lit environments. To turn on the flash so it works regardless of the lighting situation, press the flash button on the camera (or touch-screen LCD, if equipped) until the forced flash icon appears on the LCD screen. The flash button has a lightning bolt symbol on it



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 shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  • If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  • Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  • Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  • If an external flash is connected

Flash will not work


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.

My kodak z612 only flashes once in awhile


The flash has to "charge" up a high-voltage capacitor in order to work.

As a test: try a few flash shots, but wait ten seconds between shots. It should flash 100% of the time. If not, use new Alakaline batteries and try the test again.

If all works well, see how many you can "flash" while waiting only 2 seconds... some may work, others not. You will then get a fell of how many seconds you have top wait between flash shots.

Also, use flash for subjects nearby (up to 12 feet) ... no flash beyond that. Increase the ISO setting HIGHER (3200?) so that the flash doesn't work so hard.

Results? Use fully-charged Li-Ion or alkaline batts when you need to use the flash.

The flash does not flash. Camera works without the flash.


I reviewed the menu settings and made a change to the flash option setting. Some how the function was turned to the off position!
Reading your posted comments gave me the idea to check that out!
Thanks, TW

GE a735 digital camera flash not working, Camera works, but flash not working when shutter is pressed


Make sure your flash has not been turned off, check your settings. You may try changing your flash settings, most cameras have a setting for fill flash (flashes every time). If it still is not working make sure your batteries are fresh. If you have tried these two things, I would say its broken. If its still under warranty take it back, if not just use it and forget the flash. Flash is useless past 12 feet in most point and shoot cameras.

Fujifilm FinePix 3800 flash will not work


Normally when the flash stops working it is because the capacitor the camera uses to store the flash power ( that is what charges..not the bulb) burns out. This is a very difficult repair and should only be completed by a camera technician.
If the repair is over 10 dollars I would suggest a new camera.

Flash not working


I had the same problem with my flash not working on any setting, but I found a way to fix it: hit the menu button, make sure the "rec mode" choice is set to normal instead of burst. I think the burst mode takes multiple shots in a row, so the flash isn't compatible with that setting?
