Hi

I havent had any experience with Sony SLRs yet, but cameras are just like a computer... In fact if you think about it they are like a laptop: they have a small motherboard, an LCD screen... and a built in camera *LOL*. Yeah ok, its an odd comparison.

The software, like your computers software, is loaded into a chip on the camera and these chips are very sensitive. Electricity is a funny thing, and everything that happens inside your camera is due to electricity! A small static shock (even one YOU wont notice) can kill a camera by shorting out the fuse or any other component on the PCB. (Printed Circuit Board).

Sony will most likely replace the board responsible and the camera will work fine for a long time. Please do continue to be careful about humidity, temperature, dust and impact damage and you should be just fine.

I wish you happy shooting, and if there is anything we can do please let us know.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?

When I use Video mode, the audio has a clicking sound that is audible in the video file. I believe it is the sound of the auto focus. The camera did not always make this sound. I have tried to have it repaired by Sony. they said the camera is supposed to be that ay. I know that is not the case since I have sample that I made without the audio glitch before the audio glistch started. Now it always happens. Is there any solution? Can anyone repair this?


The solution here is repair the autofocus sensor inside as that is a confirm on your findings that clicking in the sound is the autofocus making audible noises in the micro phone. What you need to do as I hate to say it is bring it to a local camera ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera
