Possible stuck button on the camera.
That may be due to some kind of juice, or drink or some such thing getting into the button area.
It may also be due to the fact that the trigger button is not releasing quickly enough.
This will need repairs, and may be more than what you want to spend. For that reason selling it as is or for parts on a site such as Ebay may be your best out.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera suddenly flash is not working


The flash may be broken.
If not these are the flash settings on the camera in case a different flash mode has been set accidently.

Set the mode dial to [camera icon], and press [up arrow] on the control button repeatedly to select a flash mode.

The flash mode has the following features.
No indicator (Auto):
The camera decides to use the flash based on lighting
conditions. The flash will be used when
there is not enough light or when shooting a
subject against a light source.

(Forced flash):
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient light.

(Slow synchro):
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient
light. In this mode, the shutter speed is
slower under dark conditions, so you can
clearly shoot a background that is out of the flash-lit area.

(No flash):
The flash will not be used.

My sony DSC H10 cameras flash isnt working what could it be?


Hi,

If the flash is not functioning, then the Camera flash may be turned off or ot is set to Auto and will only flash when the taking pictures in poorly lit environments. To turn on the flash so it works regardless of the lighting conditions, press the flash button on the Camera until the Forced Flash icon appears on the LCD screen. The flash button on the Camera 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 it enabled, the flash will still not work in the following settings.
When shooting movies.
When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode.
When shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode.
Shooting with the Fireworks or high sensitivity mode. (ISO)
Following the above steps should resolve the issue. However, if the issue persists try resetting the Camera back to factory settings and specifications.
Try power resetting the Camera to check if it resolves the issue. To power reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Remain the Camera without power for 60 seconds and reinsert the battery.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I cannot find the burst mode on my camera, the only thing that my camera said was cannot use burst mode with flash


In burst mode, the Camera will be taking multiple images. Flash can only spark once to get enough light. If the Flash is enabling in the multi burst mode, it will loose the battery power as well as not give the correct images. Hence, by default regardless of manufacturer, the flash cannot be used in multi burst mode.
I hope you understand my concern. Thanks.

No matter what picture setting is selected the camera, Sony DSC-W50, it will only take video. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks


I think mode selector dial is not working in your DSC-W50 that is why camera is set on video mode.
Replace mode selector dial as mentioned in below image, part number is...

1-479-584-11 CONTROL SW BLOCK (SW110T) (for SILVER color)
1-479-584-21 CONTROL SW BLOCK (SW120TB) (for BLACK color)

Available in Part Store.
Thanks.

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.

Cybershot dsc-w50 records movies instead of pictures


I had the same problem with my camera.  I found that changing the mode from Multi Burst to Normal allows the camera to take normal pictures.  Go to Menu and scroll over to Mode, then select Normal.
