A6500 blinking pixels - do I have a problem?

HI

When attaching a manual lens via an adapter to my A6500, I get a multitude of multi-coloured, blinking pixels on the lcd screen. These are also visible through the viewfinder.

When using a native Sony lens, this 'display' shows up briefly when the AF/MF button is pressed.

I have had the camera three weeks and never noticed this on my previous A6000 so I'm guessing this isn't the norm.

Anybody encountered this?

Hi Liveshots

No, not focus peaking, but I can see why you might think that from my dumb description.

I first noticed this when I put the lens & adapter on - the lens cap was still on by the way, so no focusing going on. In fact, just turning the camera on with a body cap in place produces the same result.

See pretty poor video

Interesting, for some reason the "display" looks like I have seen it before, but can't recall the circumstances.  But my A6500 doesn't do this.  What do you have the AF/MF button set to?  I would reassign something to it and see what happens...

All sorted now.

Took it back to John Lewis and they exchanged it instantly.

Not only that, they price matched with themselves and gave me £180. I've also just received my £300 cashback from Sony.

    • I had my first A9, replaced within a month or so of purchase, because the switch was defective. The only way, I could get the  LCD to work,  was ...by pulling it away,   from the back of the camera. Otherwise, I had to do everything through the viewfinder, which was not easy. I am not saying  its the same problem, but mebbe worth a try ? I bought  the A9 through a Jessops branch, and they agreed that  that should not happen in a camera costing over  4 grand. The replacem
    • Facundo. Primero, desde  su foto, la pila  es agotado ! Segundo, no hay tarjeta  SD.  Vamos a cargar la pilla , y intentalo de nuevo, con tarjeta de  SD montado. Si a veces, un ISO alto, puede salvar un opportunidad, perro en este caso  no sale bien. Probarlo de nuevo con menos ISO Suerte.
    • Hard to explain in a headline, but basically I got my a6000 three months ago and it’s been working great. Lent it to my sister-in-law for a weekend and since then it’s charging has been so weird.  Plugged in, the light by the mini USB doesn’t turn yellow. The top right battery indicator also shows nothing.  But leave it alone long enough and it does seem to charge, although the better doesn’t seem as long lasting as before. The camera is also registering the USB as there since it goes
