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?

When i on my sony cybershot dsc-w35 a"E:91:01" msg will display in screen,and flash is not working


A letter and number error code of E:61:xx , E:62:xx , or E:91:xx is an indication a malfunction has occurred in the camera. To try resolving any of these error codes, power reset the camera back to the original factory specifications.

I'll forward a link to a page where you can view the information about power resetting the Camera.

Please click on the link to open the page to view the troubleshooting steps.

I tried using my camera using auto flash but no flash came out. Error E:91:01 keep on flashing in my camera.


This may be solved by doing a reset to the camera. There is a setting in the menu called Initialize, and it should reset the camera back to factory default.

Word of warning though. You will lose any pictures on it when you do this, so download them first. You will probably have to re-enter the date and time after this as well.

DSC W55 Error code E:91:01


I've had the camera for about 2 years. Have had this problem twice. All I've done is follow the manual to reset/initialize the camera's original settings. After that it works pretty good.

Error Code 05


Just because you've turned the camera off/on, doesn't mean it's been reset. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," holding down the menu key for 5 seconds, or, removing the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you should have the camera reset to factory default settings.

Another tip is to go to Canon's website and look for firmware updates. Download and install them.


Err 05 is when the internal flash is obstructed or the camera doesn't get an reply that the flash open sucessfuly. That should be covered in warranty if its an faulty "pop up flash." Call Canon at 1-800-OK-Canon or Email them at: https://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/controller?act=SupportMailerAct&fcategoryid=215&modelid=9430

Talk to them and they will give you a more in depth stuff.

Sony DSC P52 won't flash Error Code is E:91:01 tried reset already


When you pressed the reset, if it cleared the time and date that button is working. If that did not clear the error it is a hardware fault, meaning that a circuit has failed and parts will have to be replaced.
A local camera store might be able to find the problem but you will have to carefully weigh whether these older camera is worth the cost of repair.
Sorry! I hate giving bad news.
