My favorite camera – the Sony RX10 my husband bought me almost 4 years ago – bit the dust. I can turn it on but after that everything is stuck – none of the controls work.
It happened a few days ago when we were on a walk and the zoom wouldn’t work. I’ve tried whatever I could think of to jolt it back to life – turning it off and on – removing the battery – replacing the SD card. After standing on my head (okay not literally) I got the Menu to return for a short visit and I tried to do a reset. Froze up again soon thereafter. I googled online looking for others who might have had similar problems – not much there. Last thing I’ll do is replace the battery – new one is in the mail – I doubt it will make a difference. Sigh.
Some of my best pictures of Benji and Tiger were taken with my RX10.
Not to mention the hummingbirds.
I’ll replace the battery and if that doesn’t help I’ll check in with repair shops. Maybe contact Sony. The latest version of the same camera costs double what we paid 4 years ago so there won’t be any cheap solutions. In the meantime I still have my compact Sony RX100 which takes good pictures too but without the zoom and other nifty features.
Big snow still in the forecast for tonight.
