Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera
My flash quit working all of a sudden. the little yellow light by the flash sign is flashing.
Check your batteries. If you are using lithium ion batteries, they are strong enough to run the camera operations just fine, EXCEPT for the flash. After a couple of uses, the li ions are not strong enough to produce a volt burst strong enough to trigger the flash. Get the rechargable nickel hydride batteries recommended at sony.com.

Hello there sarah
If you have the brief
flashing yellow light, then its followed by a red blinking light then
you have the yellow light of death AKA the YLOD.
The lights are a
warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the
quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the
PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the
solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time
this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose
connection with the motherboard and you get the YLOD.
WHERE TO GO FROM
1 - Call Sony
In warranty the Price
is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150,
the whole process is 4-6 weeks
You can call Sony and
they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back
2 - Fix it your Self
You can use a PS3 fix
manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you
probably already own.

people like you.
