I have figured out why I can't get the flash on and what macro mode means but how do i turn default the flash on when i power up the camera? The flash is always off when it is turned on and this is a...

The macro mode is for taking close-up pictures. In this mode the flash will not work. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB jack. Slide the switch away from the flower and toward the mountain.

I can not change settings, for example, no flash to flash. When I go to take picture "Digital Macro" appears momentarrilly on display.

You're in the macro mode. Macro mode is for close-up shooting, and the flash is disabled in this mode.

Set the camera to the shooting mode (set the mode switch to the camera position). Press the FUNC/SET button. Use left/right to select a different mode and press FUNC/SET.

How do you turn the flash on

Using the Flash
The flash is designed to function automatically when lighting conditions permit the use of flash.
The camera has 3 flash modes: Off, Auto , and Always On. You can take an image using
a desired flash mode to suit your circumstances. The flash's effective range is
35.4” ~ 59.1”(0.9m~1.5m) (in Normal mode).
The flash is disabled if the camera is set to Macro mode.
1. Press the Power button to turn the camera on.
2. Toggle until your desired flash mode appears on the LCD display.
3. Compose your scene and press the SHUTTER button
to capture your image.

Flash button is the one like an arrow pointing downwards. (not a straight arrow) Usually located beside Disp, OK, Menu.

How do I get the flash to work. I have hit what looks like the flash button directly above the Ok button with no success yet in getting a flash to occur when taking a picture. Thanks for your help.

Check to see if your camera is on the macro function. The button is on the left side of the camera (as you are looking at the screen) and it is a slide button. If the camera is on macro, there will be a flower displayed on the screen. This is for close-up photos and will not allow the flash to be set. Slide the button up and a mountain should show on the tool bar of the screen, this is the far away setting. You should be able to set the flash settings now. Good luck.

When zooming in for a close shot it will not focus

When using the tele, the closest you can be to a object is probably more that one meter. If you need to get closer you should switch to macro mode.

Can't use macro

Select Macro Mode - this is a fairly obvious first step but I’m always surprised by how many digital camera owners haven’t explored the shooting modes that their camera has. Macro mode is generally symbolized with a little flower and when selected it will tell your camera that you want to focus on a subject closer to your lens than normal (the minimum distance allowed will vary from camera to camera - consult your instruction manual to find yours). Macro mode will also usually tell your camera to choose a large aperture so that your subject is in focus but the background is not.

I can"t turn on macro. When I push the button, I see on the display that macro is invalid.

I have a Sony W120 and had the same macro problem, tried all the "solutions" mentioned here without result. So I pressed the "Home" button, went to "Settings" (last menu item at right), then "Main Settings", and used the "Initialize" functio. Problem solved !
