a580 Won't Autofocus -> "Camera Error"
May 19, 2013

Hi all.

I really don't know how to explain this, so bear with me here.

While taking pictures last night, my a580 wouldn't respond to the shutter button. After switching to manual focus, I was able to take a few pictures, but autofocus was a must at the time so I had to switch back to AF. When I did go back to AF, however, the SteadyShot and Flash symbols on the LCD would start flashing, and after a few seconds of not focusing at all, the motor would change the focus of the lens, and then a "Camera Error" message would pop up on the LCD.

The problem still persists more than 12 hours later, and I have no idea what's wrong with my camera.

Anyone have an idea what the problem is and what's causing it?

Thanks a bunch!
