Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T33 Digital Camera ?

My flash is no longer working


\015 Camera is in great shape besides the flash not working. I can't believe how expensive it is to repair ($180+). My question is if I order the replacement part is it relatively easy to fix yourself? Anyone have experience with this? I see an internal crack on the flash bulb itself, so I'm pretty confident this is the problem.\015

Answers :

The strobe element is often the problem in this camera, if the glass tube cracks or breaks the strobe will no longer function. This part is not difficult to change but please be aware that the capacitor that fires the flash often remains charged and will hurt you if you contact it. Please be careful if you attempt this repair. I have a 10K resistor that I attach to this capacitor to discharge it before working in these circuits.\015\012Good luck to you.\015\012\015\012Joe Weibel\015\012customelectronics.org

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.

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode.

My flash no longer works. When I press half-way down, the image on my screen looks as if the subject is lit up, but when I take the picture the flash does not work. Could the flash bulb be burned out? What can I do to fix this problem?


The bulb is most likely the problem, but it could be the high voltage capacitor that triggers the flash bulb, or possibly the transformer that charges the capacitor. I would bring it to a camera shop to see if the bulb replacement will do the trick. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

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 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
