In that case it's broken and is not a DIY fix. Usually it's either the flash tube or flash charging circuitry/capacitor, and they're the sort of things which can just fail suddenly.

Your camera will still be under the manufacturer's one year worldwide warranty, so contact Sony in your country to find out what the local arrangements are.

You'll need to provide proof of the purchase date, if you cannot do so then the repair will be chargeable; Sony have a fixed fee policy for dSLR repairs and if you're in the UK then it's currently £114.56.

Note that if you're in the UK then you additionally have Sale of Goods Act protection for up to six years (five in Scotland). The Act states thaty goods must be of durable quality with respect to the price paid and intended use. Clearly the camera should not fail within such a short space of time so you may be able to return the camera and demand a refund from the retailer. Enforcing your rights is sometimes a different story altogether, but note that if you accept a repair from the retailer then you future rights to reject the goods are severely reduced.

One further VITAL point: if there is even the slightest evidence of any unauthorised repair attempts, all your consumer rights vanish.

On balance, I'd strongly recommend that you either return the camera for exchange/refund or return it to Sony under warranty.

Hope that this helps, all that I ask in return is for you to take a moment to rate my answer.

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. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and tried all modes expecting that the ones listed in the manual as using a flash would work, but they dont, it never pops up. I lifted up the flash with my fingernail manually, and then tried taking a picture where a flash was most definitely needed, but it still had a long delay, no flash, and


In addition to resetting all the camera settings you should also choose the "clear all custom functions" option that is also available from the same menu. Once that's done. Put the camera in Full Auto mode and see if the issue is resolved. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.
