Sony Alpha 6000 Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone,

I have a problem with my sony a6000 and I wonder if someone could help me. I need to know which part of the camera is damaged and has to be changed. So I explain the problem…

I first had an issue with the LCD screen. I opened the camera and fixed the connection between the LCD and the motherboard which was damaged. After reassembling all the LCD screen worked again but a new strange problem appeared with the control wheel. For example when I am in a menu and I press on the left or bottom of the wheel the cursor first changes location (which is normal, so the control wheel looks ok) but then, and very quickly, the screen changes and goes directly to the "preview of the photos" (generally accessible by the "play" key, I don’t push this key, the change is automatic). The right and top buttons of the wheel work correctly (not going to the photos preview). The ok key (in the middle of the wheel) also has the problem, when I press it (to validate anything) the screen always goes to the preview of the photos (this is a big issue to me because I am now unable to change any settings of the camera).

Could anyone tell me what are the possible causes of the problem?

I think maybe this could come from the motherboard but I am not sure at all and I would like to be sure before buying a new one.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

    • 1. Yes.  C1 setting is under Camera 2->Custom Operation1 (8/9)->Custom Key->Top.  Zoom option is under menu #17. 2. Yes (I'm assuming by "water-gauge" you mean the level indicator).  EVF display settings are under Camera 2->Display/Auto Review1 (6/9)->Finder.  There will be a check box list, check Level.  When the EVF is active press the Disp button on the back wheel to cycle through the display settings. 3. No. Too bad Sony doesn't make the menu system update-able
    • Got my A7S III yesterday, it's amazing all around, being able to AFC with the sigma mc 11 and canon lenses while recording was HUGE,  and didn't know it since everyone on youtube were trying on native lenses.   Only think that has bugged me a bit is that I went to film a wedding today, and from 750 video files at least 15 or them are vertical (1078x1920) not sure if this was because of having it on the strap and starting to record before time or something..   Does someone kno
    • How is it not really 4k if a crop is involved? 4k only needs 8.3 MP's, so the 12 MP sensor of the A7Siii has pixels to spare. This also relates to Chrissies point: in full-sensor readout the A7Siii downsamples from 4240 by 2385 pixels (10.1 MP) to 3840 by 2160 pixels (8.3 MP). In 120p-mode it reads directly from 3840 by 2160 pixels, hence the 10% crop (1 - 3840/4240 = 9.4%). So yes, it uses about 18% less sensor area in 120p than in 60p but still uses real 4k input.
    • Measure twice and cut wrong is more my style! I think I'd prefer the manuals if they came on paper, but age, and the sheer amount of stuff that machines do these days, has robbed me of much of the pleasure of ploughing through the entire thing.
    • This is good to read, i have order the 70-180 and it should arrive this week. I have read nothing but positive reports so far so hope it lives up to expectations. I will use it for portraits, landscapes and some low light sports so hoping its up to the task !
