Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?


Answers :

It's flash problem - could be a dead flash fuse or flash board. You should contact your local Sony service center or if they ask too much, you can contact me at [email protected] If you have a multimeter and you're ready to open it and test the fuse, contact me.
I work in a Sony service center.

The problem is with one of the capacitors, Sony can replace it for you at a cost of $80. This error can come, if we click photos continuosly, the capacitor may get heated up. We need to give a gap of 3 to 4 seconds. Time to be given for the flash to get recharged after a click. \015\012
\015\012Just give a call at Sony help line. 800.222.SONY, they will replace the capacitor.
\015\012If its worth the cost, go for the repair, or you can use the device without flash by disabling the flash. At setup just disable the flash and this error wont show up again.
