so, after much searching for an answer I guess I need to show (to someone who understands what I’m talking about) examples of my problem.
the first images were shot with the kit lens (16-50) or the 18-200 OSS SONY lens (great lens!) a few years ago and had no editing.
they were amazing! I could see them razor sharp in the PC and I’ve printed quite a lot of them (biz sizes as well).
but lately (end of last year, and 2020) I’ve been seeing that the camera has much more difficulty to focus (it takes wayyy more time to focus) and most of the times doesn’t even focus at all.
I used mainly P or SCN modes but now that I got a bit more to learn about photography I’ve been trying to get into M mode. And also bought a prime lens (Sigma 30mm f1.4). and the problem persists! Even with the sigma lens (which has the reputation of being perfect sharp) I see lots of noise and just not a good sharp image, not in the viewfinder and even less in my new Mac...
I don’t know what to do. Wanted to buy a new one but I really loved my a6000 and don’t want to just dismiss it because it’s “outdated”.
ah! I’ve upgraded the firmware and have initialised it many times... still, some photos are ok but not great and most of them do not focus at all!
Suggestions? How can I be sure it’s defective?

I have 2 issues using these functions for the first time on the Sony A6000 :
When I shoot to register a face for the first time I continually get an error 'Cannot Register…Shoot Again' When I set the chosen Smile shutter setting no green frame appears to frame the face and trip the shutter Is there specific settings I that the camera should have before activating these two functions
Thanks in advance of any pointers/advice to resolve this
Several months ago some strange things started happening with my a6000.
For example when I'm previewing my photos, the camera jumps to the shooting mode by itself. Or when I am manual focusing with the magnifier, it disappears. It's like I'm pressing the shutter button. But it's not only that. When I'm recording video, it will suddenly stop recording, like I've pressed the recording button (sometimes after 10 sec, sometimes after a minute or two). It's like pressing different buttons by itself. Sometimes it's changing the shooting mode for a couple of seconds.
I don't have any idea what's happening.
Can someone help me? Thanks in advance!
Something very strange happened. I was shotting when the camera stopped recognize image, just showing a white screen.
I tried to change the iso, the shutter speed and the aperture, but it didn't interfere with the image. Always white.
I also tried to format the card, clean the sensor, change lenses and batteries, reset the settings, but nothing worked.
Anyone have any idea what to do?
ps: I found strange the mark on the left side of the curtain. I do not know if it has something to do with the problem.
