Hi UDAM99re,

Welcome to the Sony Community!

Sorry to know that you are experiencing this issue with your camera. Does the flash pops up but does not fire?

Try to set the flash first to fill flash / force flash to make sure that it is really not working.

Turn On camera and set the mode to Program Auto. Then change Flash settings by pressing MENU → (Camera Settings) → [Flash Mode] → Fill Flash. If the Flash pops up but does not fire, it could be an indication that the bulb needs to be replace or the flash mechanism need to be fix.

If my post answers your question, please mark it as "Accept as Solution".
Best regards,
