Atempt to open this camera if you are not specialized for this job is not a good idea. Part number for the flash unit 147904011. Price around 50 Euro (for my account). If you need more info, please advice. Arpi

How do you replace the flash bulb in sony cyber-shot dsc h10 camera?

You must send the camera in for repair to replace the flashing unit

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.

Flash bulb not fuctioning my camera sony cyber shot dsc w55

1.Try initializing the Camera.To initialize the Camera, select the "Initialize" option under the "Setup 1" Menu of the Camera.

2.Even if the flash is set to always ON, 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 flickers...

i honestly never came across anyone who had a flash replaced usually because most companys flat rate out of warranty repairs at 100-125 dollars-if it's a p series camera it sounds like the flash is dying or the battery is worn out and not supplying proper voltage to allow it to fully fire-i would consider buying a new w series w150 is great or 120- if battery is fine then flash is just shot-even old memory sticks won't work in new models so you also have to buy a new card

Flash not working?

I found this solution on another site and it worked for me. Good luck!

hi - thanks - you're right. I called SONY
last week. They told me to reset, as you describe. here's also what I discovered - the flash locks you out in Burst (fast frame) mode. The flash can't recover that fast. Out of Burst mode, you can control the Flash. Isn't it a much better camera with the flash?
Enjoy your W80! Thanks, Jim Connecticut, USA

Flash stoped working

Make sure yor flash is turned on. You might have burnt out flash bulbs.

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?
