Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera ?

Flash does not work, is there a consumer solution.

Answers :

\012If there are no specific Flash errors showing on your LCD (ex. E9101 error ),\012it is possible that your Flash bulb may have already burned out and needs to be replaced.
The bulb will eventually burn out especially if you've been using your camera regularly for a number of years.
\012If this is the case, there is nothing you can do on your end because the xenon flash bulbs are not user serviceable because the bulbs operate at dangerously high voltages.\012If it is still under warranty, Sony should cover it. You can call Sony Technical support at 239-768-7547.\012However, if it is out of warranty and you do not want to spend a penny, you can try this - \012Turn up the ISO sensitivity setting a bit to make your camera more sensitive to light ( do not go over 800 for this adjustment ). This will make the images of your camera a little bit brighter without using a flash.\012This tip will not fix your flash problem, but it sure beats not being able to use your camera in low light situations. \012All the best to you, Dbrasfield.\012
