Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

Hi I have a sony cyber shot dsc t20 and I get an error message flash settings cannot be changed whe I try and select another flash setting?


Answers :

I had the same problem, and i tryed everything, even opening
the camera and see if any visible damage on any part (nothing), so
when i try initializing again ( menu>setup>option #1), right after the
"OK" over reseated date, i went to the Flash Button, and turn it off
and at least the annoying flashing error is not there - that means it is
software error, because all flash functions work till it detects that
has ans error wile charging/loading the flash. Hope it helps.
