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

SOURCE: MY MEMORY CARDS NO LONGER

Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. Thinking the camera is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of different CF cards first.

The second cause of CF failure is if someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera. Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF failure.

Best regards - Michael

Was your camera off when you connected it to the pc? It has to be off in order to work. Also, Does your camera require drivers? You might have to have the driver installed in your pc order to work.
Also, did you plug in your camera to your pc and go to my computer to see if it's listed there as a drive?

Sony a100 wont turn on


If the battery is charged, try replacing the battery first. Also try turning on the camera with the charger plugged in. If neither helps, you will probably need to have the camera sent for repairs, but you can still try checking out the user manual for helpful information:

Hello, I'm having troubles with my camera, a sony alpha 580 dslr. I try to take a picture and the shutter stays down a few seconds when I don't have it set to that and it is making these awful grinding...


sounds like the shutter chain is slipping, or shutter is sticking, this does not look good. you may need to have the body replaced, usually camera shops will tell you that the repair costs more than the replacement.

i would take to a sony dealer for further advice, I assume you are still under garantee you should be ok. as this model only came onto the market last august. and usually has 24 months cover on parts.

I hope this was useful.

I cannot figure out how to use the timer setting on my Sony DSLR a100. HELP


Press the Drive button (marked with a one-handed clock). Use left/right to select the one-handed clock. Use up/down to select the delay, then press the OK in the middle of the cursor pad. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

SONY A350 when turned on and off makes loud vibrating sound


Hi, I have exactly the same problem. The vibrating sound happens when the camera is turned-on or off. It looks like the camera is auto-deploying the anti-dust functionality and the vibration tries to shake-off the dust on the sensor. But I tried cleaning up the insides.. no luck. Would appreciate any tips on resolving this issue.. thanks, KP

Sony Alpha A100 shakes when I turn it on


It's actually, believe it or not, an anti-dust mechanism. All Sony Alpha A100's (mine included) do a little shake/vibration to help keep the dust off. It's nothing to worry about unless it lasts for more than a second.

Sony a100...Freezing up


I am a pro photographer and one of my cameras is an A100. I have noticed this same problem and sometimes when I am shooting fast the shutter delays. I found the problem in my card. My wife bought me a card based on price.  I sugest you use a card that reads faster than the camera can write. You can get the specs on the Sony Camera Site.
