you may have these symptoms,
- After pressing the power button in capture mode, the lens would
extend and a slight humming from what appeared to be the auto focus
motor could be heard for about 5 seconds. When the motor stopped
humming, the camera would beep and display E:61:00 in the LCD Screen.
- Camera would extend the lens but not be able to focus on anything past 8 inches or so.
- Zoom in and zoom out would not work.
- Playback mode and the Setup mode was not affected.
To fix this problem,
A) Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface.
B) Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit.
Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time.
If that doesnt fix it, try this:
A) Turn it on and let the lense go out fully
B) See where the lens comes out of the camera? The little round crack
that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be
sure not to blow on the lense!)
Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed!
If not, try these steps a few more times. If still nothing, then I
suggest you to call Sony, but this DID work for 90%, so hopefully it''ll
work for you :)
Thanx for using fixya,
