Alpha 200 stuck on "portrait" mode.

Unread postby marius3k » Thu Sep 18, 2008 5:47 am

Hello friends.
I have a small problem with my Alpha 200: the display orientation is stuck in the portrait mode, and doesn't rotate any more when i turn the camera on the other side.
The display’s orientation automatically switches from landscape to portrait position when the camera is turned on its side.
Now it doesn't. :(
Has anyone seen this problem? Is it a real problem? What to do next?

Have you changed it from within the menu?

I think I did that too.
Also, I reset the camera and cleaned the sensor.
Now I took out the battery and left it like that untill I come back home from work.

Fixed it, "romanian style". Touched it hardly with my left hand while holding it with the roght one. 3 times and it's ok.
Now I remembered that I left it in my card for a few cold nights. This may be the reason why it was blocked?

Congratulations and don't leave your camera in the cold anymore, specially as the winter is not far. :D
