Try to look innocent when you send your cam in for repairs @ Sony Service Centre? :p

I never had the habit of sending in my warranty cards cos my things never spoilt before... until now :(

Internal flash cannot work, but I can still use external flash... so still can take.

I'll try to see what I can do about the repair, when I'm going sony, I'll inform u.

Then just take this as a lesson.
it is not rare for electronic product to develope problems, esp in the first 6 months of its usage cycle.
If you have the card sent you sure can get it repaired for free, just show them your ext flash as the evidence that you never abuse the int flash.

oic...sorry for the misunderstanding....

Me too...never send in my warranty card....i just bought a new CD-writer, a laser printer and a PDA, and i never send back warranty card yet...cos i want to take the risk and wait till the thing spoil then send in....

but not for the DC....cos it is too costly and i can't afford to void its warranty

btw, heard that once u connect to ext flash, the int flash will be disabled rite? so how the camera do pre-flash?

since your int flash spoilt, your DC cannot fire pre-flash rite? so are there any different?

Yes.. int flash is disabled, the camera does not do a pre-flash. The flash depends on it's own light sensor to determine amount of flash... since it is not TTL, it takes a lot of trial and error... and experience with the unit to gauge the correct settings (using manual mode mostly, unless it's fill flash)
