Hi!
Yes, a well known problem for A200. The flash board has to be changed. You should contact Sony - I believe this a factory problem, so you should ask them to make it for at least half of the price. I work in a Sony service center and I have repaired a lot of these.

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash.
