Desperate for A6000 advice on black bars/images with SONY lenses

Hello guys,

I've searched high and low on these forums and web-wide for the issue that started 2 weeks after my Sony Alpha A6000 warranty expired....

With all SONY lenses (have 3 - kit + SEL55210 + the 50mm), no matter what SD card and without SD card - with EFCS turned on the camera takes fully black pictures.. , with forcing various shutter speeds sometimes creates black bars on the bottom, and eventually after further fiddling sometimes starts taking normal pictures.

With EFCS turned off it will take a picture above 1/200s shutter speed but not anywhere bellow (fully black bellow already slower than 1/160s)

Already found that if it was the mechanical shutter, there would likely be some blurring on the black line and not such a sharp cut-off.

Service center "wasn't able to reproduce the problem" as after a time the camera shoots OK for a while (like 50pictures) and then reverts into this problematic mode.

I would be grateful for any suggestions at all!

Tried, fully updated firmware 3.2, various lenses, all shutter speeds, EFCS on/off, reset, everything I can think of

EFCS off, shutter 1/125 otherwise same settings as last picture which worked

Don't know if EFCS was turned on here, but I suspect yes

Believe EFCS was turned on here, after a few shots like this the camera started shooting at all shutter speeds normally.

EFCS off, shutter 1/200 otherwise same settings as first black picture
