How far away are you from the target when taking the picture? Most of these point and shoot camera's have a recommended distance from the focus point of the picture in or around 6-8 feet. Once going beyond 10ft, you will rarely get the full lighting from the flash.

    It's not the distance cuz it doesn't even show close ups at night. The flash goes off like it's suppose to but the pix either come out really dark and once or twice so bright u can hardly see the image...it's being rather naughty :(

When you take pictures either on your phone or your camera why do they have a flash at the back when you want to take pictures

If photo you are taking is in dark area , photo will not be seen as to dark area , so if dark , flash fills in .

Pictures very dark even with a light meter

Digital cameras operate on a delayed shutter. Your Camera and flash are not synchronized. Try adjusting flash to a slower speed. Or the cameras Fstop value to get them insync.

If you half push the shutter the rangefinder and focus circuits kick in and will adjust to available light and give you your best picture. Do not ever push the shutter in one step. press it slightly to get the best focus and then push the last millimeter to get the picture!

- Flash goes off but pictures dark (very)

You don't say what kind of pictures you're trying to take but, understand that the built-in flash is only effective for about 8 - 10 feet.

Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash

Hi, I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).
You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light. If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out. If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.
So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash. If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value). If its still dark, increase the ISO number.
Hope these help.
cheers,

Flash

checking on the first 2 comments, if there is flash and the pictures are dark - please check the lighting conditions
is it a dark place, fairly lighted or fully lighted

the flash also has a certain range, the subject may be far that the flash cannot reach it

if there is really no flash - it may be a hardware problem, pls contact kodak to arrange repairs
try going to PASM> fill flash too, if still not working - repairs =)
