Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A350K Digital Camera
I have my sony alpha DSLR-A350 for only 15 months. Since last week it does not focus anymore. All images are blurry and out of focus. I tried different lenses, a tele zoom and I even bought a new tamron lens to get rid of this problem. Did not work, images are still blurry.
Unfortunately this means that the focus detection system within the camera body has a fault. There is nothing you can do on a DIY basis to fix it, the only remedy is to get an authorised Sony repair centre to rectify it. If you have an extended warranty then read the documentation to see how to make a claim, but if not then the one year Sony warranty has expired and you'll have to pay for repairs yourself. Sony have a policy of fixed cost repairs and if you're in the UK then no matter what the cause of the fault is you'll be charged £114.56 at the present time. Not cheap, but a lot cheaper than a new camera and certainly cheaper than trying to solve the problem by buying additional lenses. You'll need to download and fill in the Sony repairs form, click here for the UK version or search for the version for your own country. The only other option is to sell your camera "as is" as a spares or repairs item and use the funds towards a replacement. If you do get Sony to repair it, then check and test your camera VERY carefully and thoroughly afterwards: repairs are guaranteed, but only for ninety days.Every repair I've had done has lasted fine, but my personal experience of the UK repair centre is that an unacceptable number of repairs have been poorly executed and had to be immediately returned for further attention. Of the faulty repairs which I've spotted, Sony have always eventually rectified the problem satisfactorily. Good luck and I hope that I've been of assistance.
