A7 just died!
Jul 31, 2014

My A7 which has worked perfectly since purchase from B&H in January just died. It won't power on.

I used it a couple of days ago and it was working just fine then, its never been wet or even has a scratch on it yet. I also have a 5N and took a good battery from it and put into the A7 just to make sure.

I also found out the Sony batteries must have an overload protection inside. Once the good battery from the 5N is inserted into the A7 then back to the 5N, the battery wont power on the 5N until I put it back into the charger for a minute to reset it. Apparently the A7 is shorting the battery out. I have 3 Sony batteries and all 3 do the same thing. Removed lens and SD card just to make sure those were not affecting it also.

Of course my son has a concert tonite, good thing I have the trusty old 5N as backup. Make sure you have a spare camera for important events because apparently these can just die at any moment!
