Error code E:61:00

My sony cyber-shot suddenly went wrong with the lence not reclining back into the camera when switched off unless pushed gently. when i switched the camera back on the camera desplayed an error code of E:61:00 which contantly flashes and the image is distorted and out of focus on the screen. if i switch the camera on when the lence is still out the camera beeps and tells me to switch the camera off and on with a black screen but doing this makes no difference to the camera at all. i've tried resetting the camera which didn't help and unfortunatly i've not been able to find my instructions book to see if the code has a meaning. if there are any solutions out there i'm very keen to find them!! regards Suzi

    I had the same problem with my Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T5. The error code was similar (E:61:10) so I thought I might as well give it a shot. I banged it on my hand pretty hard a few times...nothing, then tried my desk...nothing. After finding out it would be a minimum of $200 to fix the camera I started banging it harder and harder all over the camera...and lo and behold...IT WORKED! The focus is back and I saved $200 bucks! This website is a godsend - thanks everyone!!

For DSC-W17: The lens extended (normally I thought), but would not zoom. I shut it, and it was attempting to extract-retract, but shut with the lens rather extracted. Putting constant gentle pressure helped the lens to retract while shutting, even though it was attempting to extract again for 2-3 seconds.

Harder pressure however (about 1/2 kilo strength on wooden desk) made the lens totally unoperational... :(

As radical as it sounds, I tried the solution of taping the camera on the table, and surprising as it sounds, IT WORKED!!! (NOT TOO HARD THough.)

My lens would not close. i had the E:61:00 flashing error. i rapped my camera on its side on the table gently, and the error went away and the camera worked normally. pictures were NOT out of focus (common complaint). Thanks!

I fixed this problem, at least temporarily, by rapping my camera against the table! At least I can postpone costly repairs for today!

I had the same problem with my Sony Cyber Shot. I brought it into a camera repair shop. They said it will have to be sent in and probably run about $200 to fix. Their response was that it is worth fixing, if you have an extended warranty.
