I’ve been having this same problem for a couple years, and it has almost always gone away by just turning it off then back on again. Lately it’s taken 6 or 7 tries to clear the problem, so need to get ‘er fixed. Glad to have found this thread. i read through the whole thing, and very happy to hear that the software update might fix it. Regardless, i called Sony repair (New York) and he said it is a lens stabilization issue and that i would need to send it in. I asked for approximate cost to fix: $280-$900. Yikes. I doubt i could even get $900 for this camera these days!
Anyway, for those of you with the same issue, has the software update always fixed it? Either way, i’ll do that to both of my NX-5s (though only one has the issue), and hope i don’t see it pop up again. Also, trying to make it happen this morning, and it won’t! i’ve turned it on maybe 15 times already and it’s good everytime! 😉
Like with a car mechanic, maybe just talking the problem fixed it.
thanks for helping out a bonehead!
