The error e:61:10 signifies a stuck internal lens. Shut it off and tapping it on the side might work. If not you could have it repaired. In that case you may as well buy a new camera. Sorry.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and will require disassembly and trouble shooting to narrow down the cause. This can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

You could try removing the battery, and reinstalling the battery to see if the touch screen starts working again. If it doesn't, this device will need to be sent in to Sony for repairs.

Find a location to get your Sony product repaired, the Sony repair cost, and to initiate the repair procedure. Here is a link to Sony's Repair site: https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do

I'm sorry that the Camcorder is displaying the "DATA ERROR" message. shajanrs_96.jpg
You can find the HDD FORMAT option under the HDD Set Menu. shajanrs_100.jpg

If the issue persists after performing the HDD FORMAT, try resetting the Camcorder using the RESET button located behind the LCD panel. You can locate the RESET button from the below picture. shajanrs_102.jpg If the issue persists after Resetting, service many be required.
