Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

My camera's flash doesn't work :/ and it says E:91:01 what does that mean? can I fix it? or my camera is useless

Answers :


The E:91:XX error code appearing on the Camera screen is due to an Internal Hardware malfunction.
The E:91:01 error code may be due to the issue with the flash unit in the Camera. This can be resolved by checking or replacing the Flash unit.

Before that try the normal troubleshooting steps like power resetting and factory resetting. If the issue persists, it would be better to get the unit serviced at the Sony Authorized service center.

PS:i have bought my camera before 11 months!! please help.

I have replaced the battery in my R707 (twice) but it won't take pictures. The message says "charging flash" and locks up the camera.

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Hi, My Nikon Coolpix S3000 flash has stopped working after only 3 weeks of having the camera and an aeroplane icon is also showing on the display. I have had the camera at elevation and in humidity, but with a new camera I would think this would not be a problem. I have also charged the camera totally but the flash still does not work. Please advise me any fix. Many thanks Shelley

Sounds like you somehow put the camera in "airplane" mode which keeps the camera from interfering with the electronics on an airplane. Change the mode. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera
