For some strange reason, my camera's flash has gone CRAZY....there's no such thing a balanced flash, it overexposes the image or under; you can take a picture on good light, 2 times without moving and one will be overflashed and the other dark o even black.....on sunny places or places with good light the camera works fine but whenever the flash kicks in, the pictures are a mess....i'm currenlty in beijing, any tipos of what to do with this camera?
I have the exact same problem and reviewed the owner's manual and there doesn't seem to be any luck. Clearly the flash seems out of sync and the red eye reduction doesn't seem to work properly as well. I think I'm stuck sending mine back to Sony.
I think the lens block assy.is bit sluggish and not in sync.
The only alternative is to check with any good repair center.
I can help you with original spares when you need them for any SONY Camera Part.

Re: Problems with my camera's flash...
Well if you have time and the camera manual with you check out the settings to make sure you have not missed anything.
You could also check out the Fuji Tech Support at the Website
Not much else you can to unless you can find a repairer- after all you re in the land where they are all made.

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of the image that have been overexposed so much that all details have been lost and gone pure white. Usually this is a bad thing, and the camera is warning you of it. The proper fix is to reduce the exposure to bring back some of the details. If you simply want the camera to stop the flashing, see page 117 of this manual.
You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been so overexposed that they've gone pure white, losing all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing so the camera is warning you about it. But the camera doesn't know what you're taking a picture of, things like the sun reflecting off polished chrome should go pure white, so it's just a warning.
Usually the proper fix is to reduce exposure, bringing back the lost details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but that's generally considered not as bad. After all, we don't expect to see things in the dark.
That was the long answer. The short answer is to press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your picture.
My Fuji has started doing the same thing!
The only way I can get a reasonably exposed photo is to place a piece of white paper in front of the flash to act as a diffuser.
Any info you can find out would be appreciated...even if to know that this is a permanent situation.
Still takes GREAT outdoor and moon shots!
Have you set the 400 ISO, or do you have the camera on Auto ISO?
Go back to your setup menus and set the Sensitivity to the lowest ISO value possible. Now set the White Balance to Auto. Exit the menus. Now set the camera to P for program. In effect, you have turned the camera into a point-and-shoot dimwit. It should now take reasonably well exposed shots indoor and outdoor. If the shutter speed does not register on the body, you should put the dial on Tv and see if you can alter the speeds. Remember, not all finctions are available for all dial settings.
I have the same flash and I have only used it with my FAJ 18-35 and FA 24-90. Exposure seems to be darker with the FAJ 18-35 than with the FA 24-90 which is fairly good. When compared to the RTF, the exposure is also darker for both lenses but I would say the RTF overexposes than is correct.
Regarding the coverage warning lamp, my 240 did lit up correctly with the 1.5X multiplying factor already taken into account by the camera, i.e., the 24-90 don't have the warning and with the 18-35, the warning lamp lit up when I zoomed near the 18mm.
So, everything seems normal for my setup. Anyway, I shall try your mentioned lenses F 35-70 and DA 16-45 later on and see if these lenses exhibit the problems you described and will keep you informed.
