Issue#143: Sony - Faulty A6000 and lens software update query

  • My 7 month old A6000 using the original SELP1650 and later purchased SEL55210 has developed a problem. Using the auto modes everything works correctly, but useing A,S or P modes has suddenly produced heavy vignetting and erratic, often under exposure. It would appear to be faulty.


    I decided to see how updated my lens software was in case an update might cure the problem. The lens status is:-


    SELP1650 Body V2.00 Lens V.01

    SEL55210 Body V2.00 Lens V.02


    Refering to "ILCE-6000 Support - APS-C Lens system software update Ver.02"


    This tells us : - "if the system software version of your lens is Ver.02 or later, the update is not required"

    Therefore my original kit lens does require the update. It then asks me to select my lens for downloading, which in fact is NOT offered as an option. (The nearest option is the SEL1855) Why is this so?


    An additional issue is that specification of the camera includes a feature named "Fast Hybrid AF" Despite this statement, the information then goes on to contradict this (in my case) by stating:- "without this lens update, the camera will use the normal contrast-detection AF even if Fast Hybrid is selected.


    I can only conclude that these instructions were clearly written for the earlier NEX cameras and have not been updated for the A6000.


    Can anyone advise and enlighten me further before it goes back to the store next week

  • Issue#86835: Sony - Sony FS5 Firmware update Issue v1.10

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone had a solution to a problem I have been facing when updating the firmware of my Sony FS5. When I try to update it on my PC it will not recognize it (this is with the AC adapter connected as well as the USB.) I get the connection through on my FS5 LCD saying it is connected, but it will not process onto my computer when going through the firmware update procedure. However, it connects and works fine on a mac. I did previously try connecting it to a mac, but had my battery connected instead of the AC adapter which then popped the message that I needed the AC connected. The only conclusion I can come to is that since the FS5 was first connected to a mac it formatted to a mac. I'm not 100% sure if that is accurate, so I am hoping someone can help me if I need to reset or how to troubleshoot this problem to work on both mac and PC, please! Thank you!

    X850C software update today - no idea what's included, but it does not fix: - Video app stretching/zooming all content to 16:9- 3D issues many are having Not Marshmallow update - still Lollipop 5.1.1 One change noticed - when rebooted (long-press on Power button or pull power) the TV boots up to the first used HDMI port rather than to the Home screen. No notes on Sony support site yet on what the update is supposed to address.  Anyone seen anything good or bad about this update?

    I have a NSX-40GT1 and whenever I try to update or install new apps I get the message "Your device is not compatible with this version." Are there any updates for firmware/software that can fix this problem? If not, when will there be?  I'm sure you all realize that we pay money for Netflix and Pureflix services and it is very unfortunate that Sony cannot keep thier equipment updated so that we can utilize these services that we pay for.

  • Issue#298106: Sony - A6000- Anyone having an a6000 charging, communication, customer service issue?

     My a6000 was purchased around the end of October 2015. There are a few bodies around and many batteries so the micro USB port or cord was maybe used 3 or four times. The kit was pulled out for the second time since my purchase while planning for a time lapse. A little software updating was in order. The Device would not connect to anything nor would the light for charging come on.So it was decided that I would contact support by text as I couldn't use the phone. They were unable to process my request for a new cord by text / live chat. Got in line somewhere else for telephone conversations with support to acquire a micro usb cord. My mind began stirring as hopefully one could imagine.During the convesation with telephone support I clearly state the issue doesn't need support the problem is isolated as I have multiple Sony products. Please just send a micro USB cord the cord was used only a couple of times and no longer works. Then I hear, "that isn't covered by warrantee." It is.

  • Issue#325300: Sony - a6000 dead after firmware update failed

    I just got my a6000 today and was getting it all set up when I noticed that firmware v. 3.1 was current and my camera had v. 2.0 installed. I followed the steps to update the firmware, but it failed most of the way through. The firmware updater stated for me to unplug the USB cable, turn the camera off and remove the battery then triy updating again. I put the battery back in the camera and powered on and nothing happens. It's dead. The red writing to disk light by the battery door remains lit and won't go out. Plugging the wall USB chager in yields nothing - not even the charging light. I read an older post suggesting to take the battery out and turn the camera on for a minute to hopefully do some sort of reset, but that didn't work. Any other suggestions before I ship it off to get repaired?

  • Issue#340424: Sony - Using Zeiss f1.8/32 mm lens on A6000

    I just purchased a used Zeiss f1.8/32 mm lens (E mount) for my A6000. When I attached it to the camera I received a message that said: "Check that a lens is mounted. For an unsupported lens, set "Release w/o Lens" in the menu to "Enable." I did that. Either way the lens does not function. The body of the camera has version 2.0 firmware; the Zeiss lens has version 2. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Issue#357635: Sony - A6000 and capture one software by phase one anyone having trouble after a bad cable being use

    Initially, I was impressed by the relationship Sony formed with Phase one to provide a free version of capture one software for RAW image editing on my Macintosh. The suite seemed impressive enough to to purchase an upgrade from phase one to unlock some powerful features such as layers, cloning, and touch-up. Within 90 days of purchasing a pro upgrade from Phase one the pro version purchased from them has managed to lose all file paths to the projects that were originally produced. After recreating the projects the software crashes and pop ups are invoked to send messages about the errors to phase one with the users email address. At this point I'm about a week out from sending the errors to phase one and no response has come about a resolution to the issue from phase one. The version of the capture one / phase one software I have is 8.3.3 and interestingly phase one has created a new version within 60-90 days of purchasing the full version and is charging yet another upgrade
