Look for the 3 boxes icon (multiple shot mode) on your lcd screen at the top. Toggle the button for this (by the shutter button) until it goes away. this has 3 modes. My wife does this all the time!

The flash will not come on

I'm sorry that the flash on the Camera is not working. 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

Please make sure that the Camera is not in any of the above modes.

How do you repair when the flash in DSC-H3 is not responding?

Hi,

Check if the Flash unit in the Camera is popping up automatically.
Check if the Flash is set to Flash Forced Off. If it is set to Off, then set it to Forced On.
Please check if the Camera is not set to the following settings:
REC MODE is set to Burst or Exposure bracket mode.
Scene Selections modes like:
ISO High Sensitivity mode.
Advanced Sports Shooting mode.
Twilight mode.
Fireworks mode.
Set the flash to Flash Forced On when the mode dial is set to M or when Landscape mode, Beach mode or Snow mode is selected in Scene Selection mode.

This should resolve the issue.

The flash in the Camera can be enabled to Flash Forced ON by pressing the Up Arrow control button on the Camera. Press the button continuously to select the desired settings.
Make sure that the Camera Mode (REC MODE) is not set to Burst or Multi Burst.
Flash will not work when the Camera is set to ISO High Sensitivity mode or Twilight mode in the Scene Selection.
The flash will not work in Movie Mode also.
When using the Landscape, snow or Beach mode, set the Scene Selection to Flash Forced On.

This should resolve the issue.

My minolta 5600hs flash does not flash all the time.

Is your Flash on Forced Mode or auto mode? If it's on Auto mode, the camera decide that flash work or not! but if it's on forced mode, I think there is a hardware problem... I hope this helps

Pictures are dark, even when flash is being used

Press the FN button under the toggle on right side of LCD screen. You will see white balance on left. Toggle down to the "flash" symbol".  Should work a treat now. If not using flash go to FN again and raise ISO.(Don"t forget to go to Auto white balance again!!)
