E 61:10

Hi guys, it's been a while... lots and lots of changes in this life of mine... but the most pressing has to be this Error code I got on Saturday last...

E 61:10

I have no idea, never seen it before and I'm (a bit) scared to find out how serious it is and/or what it means for my beloved FX1E...

any leads?...

sorry for not being here more often...

note to self... need to lose that "tourist" tag...

Thanks all

Aldric

done all of that except smacking it... (which I will NEVER do as it's super sensitive)

maybe a service call is in order...

cheers for that though...

now, where's the number for that techie dude... it's here somewhere in this space...

Thanks though...

Rough Problem

I had to send my camera to Sony. It was still under warranty so it was covered.

They had to replace the lens, lens assembly and components operating the lens and focus. Basically, I sent my camera in and received a new camera from the lens out.

Hitting your camera "CAN" make it worse. I tried that many times to no avail. Basically you can restart the cam a thousands times and the one time it works use it, because once you restart it you may have the issue again.

I heard that this repair was several hundred dollars, but I don't know for sure.

Hope that helps. My take is that it will give you much more sanity if you send it to Sony. BTW / I didn't have my camera a total of 3 weeks so it was pretty fast.
