    additional symptons, with 61 code flashing on screen it will take fuzzy pictures but will only review and delete one, like it's the only picture that was taken. Your first expert refered to page 51 in manual which in my manual is Shooting in Multi Burst Mode and has nothing to with set up.
    Enjoy the $9.95 and I'll take two aspiran and call you in the morning!

Hi,
Below is exploded view of Lens section of MVC-CD350 model and it has 2 small stepping motors (marked with red arrow), one of them got jammed so you get E-61-00 error.
If you know camera repair, apart it and take out lens with care. open 2 screws at top of stepping motor face plate , pull up slightly and rotate it with finger and place it back. do the same with second motor and done.
Good luck.

Error code E:61:00 means the camera has encountered a malfunction, and you should try initializing the camera back to the factory settings. Instructions on how to do this are on page 51 of your user manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your manual if you no longer have it. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Code e:61:00 on a Sony camera, means lens error.

    code e:61:00 on a Sony camera, means lens error.
    This usually happens because the lens mechanism is stuck or damaged.

    If lens extract and retract regularly, code e:61:00 means that the camera focus mechanism is faulty.

    Toi fix it the lens assembly must be taken apart and re-assembled, this job can only be done by an expert technician, unless you want to risk transforming your camera in a bunch of bits and screws.

When I take a picture, the camera focuses just fine. But when I'm looking in the viewfinder it looks fuzzy, even if it comes out clear. What's wrong and how do I fix it?


There's a diopter adjustment knob just above and right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder until it comes into focus.

Pictures fuzzy when you look through the viewer.


The viewfinder and the picture lens are totally separate. If it looks fuzzy, and then comes out fuzzy, the capture screen inside needs cleaned. The main lens and viewfinder lenses should be cleaned too.
Get estimates before you say yes to the work. It might be cheaper to buy another camera, unless you can do the work yourself.

Shooting mode shows nothing.


Hello,

I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).

The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.

If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.

So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.

It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.
