Need help please - A33 shutter release...

Hi Folks,

About 1 year ago, I gifted a SHINY new A33 to my dad. But today, he's come back to me with the unit no longer working... When powered on and hitting the shutter release, the shutter will not open?

The green FOCUS indicator is solid and you can here/see the lens going through the motions of AF and then locking but the shutter will not release.

BIOS vers. 1.10 (debating whether to upgrade to 2.0 from SONY's UK Support site)

Using 11-18mm DT - Tried this lens on my A900 and put my CZ 24-70mm on the A33, lens is NOT an issue as both lenses fire the A900's shutter without issue and fails miserably on the A33
Already ran the factory reset multiple times as well
IF I can find my REMOTE shutter release, will try that next...

Any solutions/tips/advice would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you,
