Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Aperture Error My camera is displaying a code 0x58. I spoke with the Sony representative, and she said it is actually 0x5B, but it really looks like an 8. Anyway she said the error means a problem in the aperture programming. She had no idea what would trigger such a thing to happen or how to prevent it from happening again. We will have to pay $228 to send it in for repair with no reassurance it won't happen again. We take very good care of the camera. Never banging it around, letting dust or rain get on it, exposing it to temperature extremes, etc. The day it started displaying the error, we were out taking pictures in a park. One minute it was fine, the next, it displayed the error. Any clue what happened here? How does aperture programming just go awry like this?

Hi

I havent had any experience with Sony SLRs yet, but cameras are just like a computer... In fact if you think about it they are like a laptop: they have a small motherboard, an LCD screen... and a built in camera *LOL*. Yeah ok, its an odd comparison.

The software, like your computers software, is loaded into a chip on the camera and these chips are very sensitive. Electricity is a funny thing, and everything that happens inside your camera is due to electricity! A small static shock (even one YOU wont notice) can kill a camera by shorting out the fuse or any other component on the PCB. (Printed Circuit Board).

Sony will most likely replace the board responsible and the camera will work fine for a long time. Please do continue to be careful about humidity, temperature, dust and impact damage and you should be just fine.

I wish you happy shooting, and if there is anything we can do please let us know.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Well, the good news is that there's probably no fault with the camera itself. It could be something as simple as the CF card being pushed in the wrong way. A look through the user manual will likely help you get to the bottom of your issue:

Does the error happen each and every time you take a snapshot, or only with some? As you are letting us know, have a look around the user manual to see if it can be of any help:

Camera error code =0x5b


Usually error codes (maybe not 0x5b) are lens comunication problems and can be fixed by removing the lens and reattaching and make a power reset.

If the problem still persists a service may be required.

Good luck

Error code eFF


This normally indicates that you're using a lens with an aperture ring, and the ring is not locked in position. Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it if the lens has a lock. Control the aperture from the body, just as with a lens without an aperture ring.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, could you reply to this post and specify what lens you do have on the D100?

Getting Error FEE when in manual mode


The error code means that you have mounted a lens with a manual aperture control and have failed to set the control to the minimum aperture setting (highest number). By setting the control to the minimum aperture, the camera can then automatically select any aperture between the maximum and minimum settings when taking the photo. The actual aperture selection is either set automatically by the camera body (if in shutter priority or auto/program modes) or is done using the camera body controls when in aperture priority or manual modes.

If you have done so and still have the problem then add a comment and we'll explore further possibilities which all involve a fault with either the lens or the camera body.

If I have resolved your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer.

Sony error code=0x58


Try using a different lens. Also, take the lens off and make sure there is nothing hindering its communication with the camera body.

Такая же фигня. Фотал нормально. Отключил автофокус, потому что фотал летящих птиц. Две фотки сделал и на третьей выскочила ошибка Camera errop code 0x58 . Выключение и вытаскивание аккумулятора не помогло. Вкл/выкл. автофокуса тоже. Не знаю, что делать. Завтра понесу в сервисный центр сдавать. :( Грустно.

Error 0x57


The 0x5b error code indicates that the amount of light passing through the aperture lens is not being controlled by the F-Stop selected. error can be fixed. check out quote at www.teleplancamerarepair.com
Another thing that happens when this error is present.
When you raise the camera up to horizontal position and try to take a picture and you get the error code and again it shuts down.Tthe system is being saturated with high light levels indicating the AV drive unit which is not doing its job and controlling the aperture of the lens. This can be fixed.

Same here. My camera gives me the same error code unless I shoot with the largest aperture/smallest F-number.
