SIMPLE Fix. I have mended about 5 of these with the same fault. It is a very common fault. Basically due to the way the flash has been designed the flash pops up far too violently, this causes a lot of stress within the lens. This in time causes the Flash cable to come loose from the socket. Simple repair, just insert the cable back into the socket. Also causes the screws at the front of the lens to come loose too. To repair, simply, remove the extenal flash bracket and screws, and remove the screws to the Left of the lens (As you are looking into the lens) This will remove the LEFT pannel on the lens. Towards the back (Camera side) of the lens there is a socket arpprox 10 Pin and a ribbon cable, It may look like the cable is in the socket but normally it is just sitting on the edge. Push this cable back in. FLASH should work again, Best to tape this down to stop it happening again. 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)
