Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera
I dont have a DSC-W80, I have a DSC-W90...I don't know if that makes a difference or anything.
Well anyway, my problem is, on the screen of my camera E:62:12 keeps flashing. It's annoying and it won't go away. I tried everything. Resetting everything. It's still there. I don't know what it means.
Has anyone else had this problem? Please help.
We had the same problem, Sony DSC W80 with the code E 62:12 flashing on the upper right side of the LCD screen. The camera was rotating the photos by 90-degrees. After reading that E 62 was related to the steady shot function, I figured it may be a stuck potentiometer in the camera (it has little sensors that tell the camera what it's orientation is, I guessed one of them was stuck from a "light" fall earlier in the day, while the camera was in the case). I firmly banged the camera in the palm of my hand 3 times on 2 sides... The problem's gone and the pictures are no longer rotating.

I had the same flashing E:62:12 on my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55. I also had the rotation problem and there was a big black crescent shaped shadow on the left side of my screen. All problems were cleared up when I banged the bottom of my camera(quite hard, actually!) against my palm...! Yay!

On Sony equipment, if the error code starts with a 'C' character (e.g. C:xx:xx), then you can service the camcorder yourself.
If the error code starts with an 'E' character (e.g. E:xx:xx), then you will need to contact your Sony dealer or local authorized Sony service facility to have your device serviced.
E:62 codes deals with sensors that are used with the Steadyshot function.
Sorry, I wish I could help you more. Good luck!

I have had 4 Sony cameras. They are one of the worst brands for cameras! When this one (DSC-W90) finally dies, and it will, I am going to a Nikon.
