An half solution: The "r nn" message is not an error message, it just reports the current size of the memory buffer. Look up "Memory Buffer" in the manual.

Try squeezing the camera very hard or slam the camera in your hand as hard as you can, this usually fixes it.

Definitely sounds like you have a problem. You should try and see if it can be repaired under warranty.

Heres a link to some things to try. Choose some at your own risk. The bumping thing worked for me once but I didn't have much to lose it was a junky camera.

Push button to take picture,it is slow to shot.

Lock in the focus first by pressing the shutter button half-way until you hear the "beep" and then press the rest of the way for an instantaneous shot.

Missing shots

your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, if you push half way the button, the camera focus on the target, then you push it more, then you shoot the picture and it is saved. Try to be more careful about what means all way down and half way down.
Hope it was helpful

My camera is showing the error code E:61:00

On Sony equipments this error code seems to be dedicated to focus and lens errors. You may have either some dirt or anything like this inside the lens or focus mechanism, or a broken mechanism (any drop of your camera lastly ?).
If you can open it properly, you should check for "foreign body" inside the mechanism (focus and zoom mechanism, but but code 00 means focus normaly).

I can't capture images

Digitak cameras have an auto focus in which you hold the button half way down and it will focus. a green light will appear at the top of the screen if the light is ideal for the shot. You can push the button all the way down without the half way for auto focus but you will have to hold it down for a few seconds for it to take the shot. It sounds as though you just may not be giving the camera enough time to actually take the shot.
