C62:11 error then stabilization and zoom won't work
When I’m recording soccer games for my son, sometimes it works fine, other times I’m having an issue where an error code c62:11 blinks on screen. Then I cannot use the Zoom button to zoom in and out of the game, and it looks like the stabilization stops working as well. I also hear a squeaking noise coming from the lens sometimes when I zoom in far. There is also a slight “jump” with the lens when moving side to side, almost like the lens movement is sticking.
I thought about putting some WD40 or lubricant on the edge of the lens frame (not on the actual lens itself) to loosen up whatever is “sticking” inside (gears?). Can anyone help me resolve this issue? Sony’s repair costs are nearly half the price of the camera. No thanks! ANY help is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.
