    Sony Handycam HDR-CX100, it was focus error, flashing E:61:00 in lcd screen, most common cause of this error is focus motor shaft fell out of the motor mount or focus lens fell out of the shaft. but this camera has different cause, the focus motor & the focus lens were physically sitting in right positon, but motor did not turn smoothly when I rotate it by a finger, so I cleaned, oiled & greased it. finally worked.

SOURCE: sony video camera hdr-cx110 ...

How I fixed the E:61:00 on my Sony DSC-P71 digital camera.

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.

A Picture of the E:61:00 Error Message


Solution :
This may sound crazy and this has not happened since I did this but here is what I did to get rid of that error message. I have not had that problem since but here was my steps:

· Turn the camera off

· Hold the camera face down over a hard surface (Like you are going to take of your desk) with only about half an inch above the surface.

OR reference the video files below for an alternate method.

· Turn the camera on

· Let the lens extend into the hard surface, don't let it extend all the way. Mine retracted slightly and then tried to extend again (let it extend the second time).

· Lift the camera away from the hard surface and notice that the error message is gone.

Sony video camera hdr-cx110 ... blinking error code E:61:00:00 auto focus doesn't work... I can see inside the lens and see movement when I use the zoom in and out ...

Hi Hedonismious,

If the camera is under warranty the best option would be to get it repaired for free via the service center.

Either they will repair it or replace it.

From the error code , it seems to be the zoom lens malfunctioning which you cannot repair by yourself and the error in itself means that you need to get in touch with the service center.
It's a chip level fault or a firmware fault which SONY authorized center can deal with.

What you need to do , i contact the service center and just inform them about the error code that you are receiving , and they will come to know as to what is the problem and direct you to appropriate department and method to get this problem resolved

I would also like to caution you , that you should not attempt anything on your own in this situation because it may result in further damage to your camcorder.

Hope this helps ...:) Let me know in case you have any queries.

Sony HD videos Review:Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and HDR-CX110 Camcorders and...

Sony HD videos Review:Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and HDR-CX110

Camcorders and cameras could be the electronic devices that you would never get rid of. There are special events and memorial moments like wedding, sports, birthday party, a long trip in South Africa and so on.

While choosing a camcorder with less than $500 bucks, what models would you consider? There are popular brands like Sony, Panasonic, JVC, and Canon.
Each manufacture promotes products with different attractive points. Here I would like to take a look at two new release Sony camcorders, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and Sony Handycam HDR-CX110, for entry-level consumers as examples.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 could be taken as one of the ultra-compact camcorders with the light weight, while Sony Handycam HDR-CX110 is general camcorder. Both AVCHD camcorders are wonderful with HD recording at 1920x1080, and there are bundled tools for some camcorders. However, the Mac version of PMB portable only seems to support Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 now, and there is no news for Sony HDR-CX110 yet. To make full use of AVCHD camcorder, you can use AVCHD MTS/M2TS converter for easy video editing and importing to software like Adobe Premiere, Avid.
Let's have a look at the comparison chart for the two models:

Even though Sony HDR-CX110 is more expensive and larger than a mini-camcorder, this model includes a 25x zoom lens for better video and picture. However, Cyber-shot also includes higher effective sensor resolution to 10.2 megapixels. The AVCHD videos with MPEG4 AVC/H.264 video codec provide high quality. Since the videos are recorded with interlace, while playing AVCHD MTS/M2TS videos on computer, you shall remember to deinteralce .mts for smooth playback.
If your eye is not that critical for images, the two models Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and HDR-CX110 could be your first camcorder for HD video. If you are looking for a higher quality camcorder, a higher cost will be ready for around a thousand bucks like Sony Handycam HDR-XR520V, HDR-CX550V, Canon Vixia HV30 or other AVCHD camcorders. Fortunately, the AVCHD camera MTS converter from Aunsoft Studio supports the AVCHD camcorders listed above, and you can play and edit HD videos on both Windows and Mac.

The auto focus does not work properly with this lens on either my Nikon D5000 or D7000. I have tried all possible combinations of AF settings. Typicaly, when I use single point to focus, the subject I...

Hi, It wouldn't autofocus on the D5000 as the body doesn't have an auto focus motor in the body and since that lens is AF, not AF-S, it won't autofocus. It should autofocus on the D7000 though, how far away are you from the object you're trying to photograph?

The picture are blurred and even in 10MP mode the resolution is very poor. the pictures lack complete sharpness.

Try resetting all the functions on your camera first. If that still doesn't work then you probably have a problem with the auto focus unit in your camera. Contact an authorized Nikon service center for further information.

With my camera on Auto sometimes I get clear pictures and other times they are blurry.

Hi boutep,

The auto mode will not necessarily work when there is hand shake , it seems that , it will remove slight hand shakes and blurs , but that's not what it's meant for.

The auto mode is like a sensor to the surroundings and then adjusts the camera exposure and color settings accordingly.

Therefore remember whenever you take pictures , not to move the camera and it's always better to focus an image first by half pressing the button and then when the image is focused and green dot is coming on the screen , you go ahead and press the button fully.

Hope this helps ..:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

I have a Cannon EOS Rebel xsi SLR camera. When I look through the viewfinder the image is blurred. IT worked fine the last time I used it, but this time it is blurred and I haven;t been able to correct...

Two possible situations. It might be that the lens focusing system isn't working. Try focusing by hand (turn the lens manually) If the image moves through a point of sharp focus, then you have a lens or focus motor problem.
More likely, you have improperly adjusted the diopter. There is a small, circular wheel on the right side of the viewfinder, toward the top corner. It is sometimes covered by the rubber viewfinder hood so you might not notice it. This adjusts the diopter correction in the viewfinder and if it's set wrong, nothing will ever look in focus. The pictures would be fine, but since the diopter is a correction for your eyesight, the viewfinder will be out of focus.

Viewfinder out of focus

Hello nikkid, E..:.. indication means that you should contact the nearest Sony Service. Possibble cause of this error can be the optical unit itself. Best regards, Arpad
