I had the same problem, and i tryed everything, even opening
the camera and see if any visible damage on any part (nothing), so
when i try initializing again ( menu>setup>option #1), right after the
"OK" over reseated date, i went to the Flash Button, and turn it off
and at least the annoying flashing error is not there - that means it is
software error, because all flash functions work till it detects that
has ans error wile charging/loading the flash. Hope it helps.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90. When I try to change the flash settings, a notification pops up on the screen saying, "Flash settings cannot be changed." I tried setting it in each mode (including Auto)...


Go to Menu/ Home and initialize camera to reset it for factory default settings to fix flash light settings bug.
If problem still not solved, let me know do you see any error code flashing in top right corner of lcd?

Sony cyber shot dsc-t70 unable to change flash setting


The Flash Off setting is fixed and cannot be changed if you are using one of the following modes:
  • High Sensitivity, Twilight or Fireworks Scene Selection
  • Burst or Exposure Bracket REC Mode
If you are using one of the above modes, change the setting to regain flash control.
NOTE: If using Scene Selection modes, the ISO setting is also fixed to ISO AUTO .

Sony cyber-shot dsc-w50 problem


When “FLASH error” (Self-diagnosis Code E : 91 : ** ) occurs, to prevent any abnormal situation caused by high voltage, setting of the
flash is changed automatically to disabling charge and flash setting.
After fixing, this setting needs to be deactivated. Flash error code can be initialized by the operations on the Setup screen.
Method for Initializing the Flash Error Code
Initializes the setting to the default setting.
1 Select [OK] with v on the control button, then press z.
The message “Initialize all settings Ready?” appears.
2 Select [OK] with v, then press z.
The settings are reset to the default setting.
• Make sure that the power is not disconnected during resetting.

My DSC-T100 won't allow any changes to the flash setting.


The flash settings on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T100 are Auto, Forced Flash, Slow Syncro and No Flash, if it is not giving you a flash and wont allow you to change the setting you might have to talk to sony or the store you bought the camera from. One long shot would be that depending on what other features you are using on the camera, i could be set up to not allow you to change the flash settings in that "mode". Sorry if this is useless, but good luck and if all else fails use sony support! :)

Hello, this error message means that there is an melfunction in angular velocity sensor, peripheral cicuits. Simply speaking steady shot function does not work well. Please contact nearest Sony Dealer. Best regards, Arpi
