I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-T7. My camera has been very good in the past, but recently it started flashing E:61:00 and became very blurry to the point where you couldn't take pictures or do anything with it pretty much. I googled the problem, and other people have had the same problem with the same camera. They suggested giving it a smack on your hand, so I tried that and the error message went away and everything seemed fine. The next time I turned on the camera it said "LENS COVER CLOSED" when it was clearly open. How can I fix this?

Re: Sony Cybershot DSC-T7
Hey lmcconnell, 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! http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DSCT7 Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead.

centre in ur area but there is a strong chance u can get free repairs from Sony bcoz it is a known problem in various models
Camera symptoms shows bad CCD Imager in camera and this part needs to be replaced.
Sony has announced free of cost repair scheme for such problem in DSC-T1 models. Please click Sony Support for details.
It happened to my camera just recently too. I guess it's a zoom fault error. Anyway, I wentto the camera repair store to get it fixed and they called up Sony who then proceeded to destroy my hopes of fixing my camera...cost of repair? $298.95
Try this test:
Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness.
If the picture is still blurred then there might be a problem with the AF but if it isn't blurred then the problem is either camera shake OR subject movement (or both).
I don't own a T7,but I have the P150 and S40. All these small Sony digicams have something in common;Sony uses 1/40 as the default flash shutter speed in low light conditions,while other makers use 1/60.You are more likely to get a blurry picture compared to other digicams you have previously used,unless you hold the camera steady (two hands).
The other thing about these cameras is their lack of weight, coming in at a mere 134 g/4.7 oz. Light weight means you must hold the camera steady (two hands) or risk camera movement when you press the shutter. Again, the tendency with a small,light weight camera is to hold it with one hand while you take a picture,this leads to blurry pictures.
The review for this camera is positive; a "Dave's Pick." - Just remember the flash range is only 5ft / 1.6m.
