It started a few weeks ago with the A700. A mirror that doesn't return - kinda. It sticks up after taking a photos and doesn't return, but if you're in drive mode, it does drop, but the shutter won't fire again after it goes back up, and it then sticks up! It then gives a camera error message.
No resetting, changing batteries, lenses, etc will stop it. It will however, take a perfect picture! All you have to do is wait a few secs for it to write to the card, turn it off and then back on, and the mirror will reset.
I'm hoping someone has a solution, otherwise it's $250 for Sony service. I'm open to all suggestions.
Then, Saturday, after a day at the Wild Bird Sanctuary with the Girl Scouts, I went to grab my cameras from the car. I thought I had both straps securely, but one of the 35os hit the ground, right on the display.
Just got off the phone from Sony Service, since the website says the $208 flat rate service for the 350 doesn't include LCD displays. For $170, they'll replace it. I'm going to do some testing to make sure everything else is OK before I send it off, as I can probably find a good used one for less than $170 + $208.
A couple of a350's, an a700 and now an a580, plus even more lenses.
