I have cleaned contacts on lens and camera, tested camera with Sony 50mm f1.8 (no problem), changed battery and memory card and completed a soft reset. Are there any other checks to carry out before I contact Sony? I go on holiday in two weeks and the thought of having to send camera and lens to Sony service is not very apealing. I would appreciate any advice that might enable me to solve this myself. Thank you in anticipation, Ian.

Did you turn on the camera while the lens extending was blocked? It happened to me once, I could see image on the LCD, but the camera didn't recognize the f number. What more specific symptoms do you have? I panicked and don't recall exactly what I did, but went through swapping lenses, pulling out battery, and doing it again until eventually it worked.
