A77 help - possible mallfunction


My A77 started doing something very weird and i think it´s broken, but before i send it to repair i would like to know if there is someone here that had the same problem.


Lens with SSM (16-50 or 70-400) are not detected. it shows F-- in the aperture and trying to shoot it shows the Unrecognized Lens message. Also the camera becomes very slow while navigating through the menus

Sigma Lens with HSM (70-200 EX HS II not the OSS). Detects the lens and Aperture works with the preview, but dosent focus

All screw drive lens (50 1.7; Tamron 24-135 ; Minolta 135 2.8) work fine.

These are not lens problems as they work fine on my A700.

Tried the Hard reset procedure but did not work.
