If tapping does not help it might be a bad contact in a flat cable connecting the mechanics to the main controller. I had this problem on a Sony TRV120e (similar tot TRV125, TRV320 and others). Repair is a bit delicate, do not try this if you are not comfortable with repairs of fine electronics. Open the camera, remove the small flat cable situated on the bottom of the main controller and to the lens side of the camera. Clean the contacts and put it back. Presto.

I had the same problem with my ZR800. After lots of searching on the net I found out what the symbol indicates. It means that the little battery that holds the memory for the clock is weak. It's under a little cover behind the main battery compartment. I put in a new one that the flashing icon is gone. I put the battery I took out into another ZR800 and the icon started flashing on it. A simple solution that Canon should have posted in the manual.
I recently had similar problem. Sony Phone tech support was very helpful. The answers were strange. You need to make sure the cameral is turned off, unpluged and take the battery out for at least 5 minutes. (something to do with reseting firmware). That sort of worked when coupled with there last comment which was to RECORD about 15 seconds and play it back. Mine was instantly healed!
If your camera is giving you a `E91` error on screen it could be a faulty flash module and need replacing at a Sony Service Center. Contact your dealer for info.
But, before you do that try steps 1 and 2 below.
Here is some things you can try:
1. If it is only a setting you can select the `green` camera for auto shooting and then press the `UP arrow key until the flash sign is shown on the screen. The screen will also say `Flash On`. Take a picture to see if it works.
If not proceed to `2` below.
2. Press the `Menu` button.
First select the `Green` camera on the selection knob.
Scroll with the right arrow to the little toolbox picture.
Once in the setup menu scroll down to the toolbox picture with a 1 under neath.
Press the right arrow arrow and then scroll to the `Intialize` option.
Press the right button and select `OK`.
Press the middle button on the arrow selector.
Camera now wants to know if you are sure, select ok.
You will now have to enter the date again and setup any `Program` settings you might want on the camera.
Now take the camera into a dark room - as it is now on `Flash Auto` and test to see if the flash works.
If none of these helped you, you can take the camera to a repair agent and get it fixed. I have replaced numerous of the flash modules at approximately a quarter of the cost of the camera.
