Many people have written saying they have trouble with flash, but virtually no one writes about how they use it when they're having trouble.  I'm just learning flash with an a77 and FVL-F43AM.  I was bewildered until I read Neil van Niekerk's books on on-camera flash and off-camera flash.

I didn't realize that when your flash is in TTL mode, flash compensation is your flash control and needs to be set correctly for the effect you want and for the ambient light you are working with.  Maybe everyone knows this and being explicit isn't necessary, but I didn't know and now that I do it makes sense of the seemingly random exposure problems I had.
