Sony DSLR, SLT, NEX, & Mirrorless Discussion > Crop Sensor Sony Alpha Camera Discussion
We had a camera club evening last week where we had to shoot using manual focus, not a problem until!!!. went to use my camera (A99II) yesterday back into autofocus --------- um what auto focus - there wasnt any - couldnt get it to work at all, checked all my settings , re booted the camera, changed lenses all to no avail. And yes, i did check the lens wasnt in manual focus mode. This morning i drove three hours to the closest Sony repair centre , they had to do a factory reset of the camera which did fix it, at no charge, but i did loose all my saved camera settings so back to square one. They dont know what may have caused it. Has anyone ever had anything like this happen before? just a bit concerned it might happen again, although now i know how to fix it, it is still a major personalizing the camera again the way i was getting used to. OOOPS sorry posted in the wrong Forum
REX (aka TG):
Occasionally I will get this problem ...ones in every two -three mounts and I get it mostly with tele lens (70-200) (300G). I remove lens and attaché again and the problem goes but not hart reset.
I have also an A7II mirrolles and before a few weeks I couldn't move the AF sensors at all they were moving only in one direction and then I made also reset but the problem didn't disappear.
I removed the lens and attached again and problem gone.
Most of the time is connection between lens and body and we may better clean contacts regularly
