Hi, their isnt much you can do yourself and the chance of getting it repaired is slim as knowbody will touch them as the cost of repair costs more than it would to buy another camera.
how ever you can try the following to try and fix it. when you switch it on pull or push the lense and then switch it off and push the lense in a bit and hopefully this will free it up and get it working, if pushing and pulling dont work try twisting it clockwise or anti clockwise when you switch it on and then off.
all you can do is try and fix it yourself as you wont find anyone who can fix it as it costs to much to have these fixed.
when you switch it on pull the lense out slightly whilst switching it on if that dont free it up push the lense in when you switch it on doing this should get it working again.
if by some chance it dont then this would mean the lense motor has failed and if this is the case you may as well sell the camera as spares because you wont find anyone who can fix it for you, even if you did find someone the cost to have the work done would cost more than the camera is worth.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
Hi, We had the same problem, and we fixed it!
First, identify that it''s the AF motor drive by
A) Turning it on and putting your ears against the camera, then hearing
a humming noise for about 5 seconds.
B) The error comes up flashing on the screen: "E:61:00".
Okay, so you''ve identified your problem!
Next you wanna fix it, right? ;)
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 lense 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 phoning Sony, but this DID work for us, so hopefully it''ll
work for you :)
ok to fix this just switch on
gently pull and twist the end of the lense you may here it click but dont pull or twist to hard till it pops
then switch camera off and on again and you should have solved the problem.
camera is not a cheap article to handle so easily. having invested much into it dont think twice to cost it for repair. even tough repair cost is high, its not high compared to camera cost. so while dealing with internal hardware dont risk it with doing it by yourself. take it to service center and fix it.
