A7R II strange error
1

shooting the other night at an event and I got this error has anyone seen anything like this. Taking the battery out worked but putting the camera in the off position did nothing.

Has this happened before? Maybe you accidentally activated a test mode by a button combination.

Very interesting and scary.  Would you please send to Sony and see if you can find out what it is.  If I saw that I would start by doing a Re-set and then give up if that did not work.

Many thanks,

Re: A7R II strange error

You're not the first to see this.

Look here

This looks like a low level machine code test that somehow the camera has somehow decided to run for diagnostics.

Edit: on further reading, another user also had this issue and the 'solution' was a replacement main board.

Good find! And with the same wonky spelling of "Preparation".
