Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera ?

The flash is turned off and when I try to turn it on i get the message "Flash Settings Cannot be changed"


Answers :

This is due to the flash capacitor inside the camera that is not getting fully charged from the battery, This compactor will need to be changed out. The capacitor is a $2.00 part and looks like this37f7d27.jpg\015\012When these give out the flash will not turn on or run, other damage can occur over time if this is not taken care of. I would seek the advise of a local camera shop or the manufacture if its still under warranty.
