It acts like it has a bug or a virus. Turn camera on in Auto mode, zoom does not function, green rectangles appear on lcd and orange light is on by viewfinder and on front by flash. It seems to let you take pictures, but you cannot scroll through them in view mode. When problems initially started, if you turned the camera on, it would just take one picture after another until you shut if off. I thought at first that the button was stuck down. Can anyone help me with this.

Did you get a solution to your problem? I am experiencing the exact same thing with my A75. Still takes pictures and displays them for the 2 second preview, then back to black. And they download fine, too. But I get the same black screen in every mode except stitch assist and movie mode. Thanks.

Try formatting the card once and then check it again, the problem is due to the reason that your camera's Auto focus is not working swith it to Auto mode disable Macro and then take Photos when the Green box appears on the LCD. Joseph Manoj +91 9352008418

This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty.
Good luck my friend.
It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera?
When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning.
