Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera ?

I have the sony a100 alpha... it wont take a photo. 4 red zeroes

\015 I did a chat with Sony tech. His troubleshooting did not cure the problem. He told me to reset the camera (remove the battery, turn the power switch on, and reinsert the battery).\015\012\015\012After two attempts I still have the 4 flashing red zeroes in the bottom right screen and camera will not take photos.\015\012\015\012Tech said "unfortunately, your unit requires repair" and asked if he could forward me a link where I can find a repair location, the Sony repair cost, or initiate a repair. I declined hoping to find the solution on some forums such as this one.\015

Answers :

Check the memory stick if its full and delete some photos......then try and take a shot.
\015\012the four red zeroes are counters for the number of shots u have taken.....it simply indicates you have a full memory stick.
\015\012Mine played the same trick on me too.
However, having reset the camera, reset all the functions, recharged the battery, re-read the manual, and FINALLY, viola, as above, erased a few shots and the camera works again! The memory stick was full!
Thank you.
