Re: A7R2 Stuck In Bootloop After Reset Settings/Initialize

is the charge light on when plugged into the usb?  maybe a dead or defective battery.  I have a dead OEM Sony battery that won't take a charge so try a different battery would be my first guess

Hi,

I know it's been a long time, but how did you solve your problem? I have the exact same problem, also on the A7rm2. Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

You could try to connect and control your A7R2 via USB, and then set the date and time.

I've only seen your reply now, thank you so much. I had in the mean time found out the solution through someone else on the internet. I also set my world location, though I don't know if it's really needed.

I wonder why this happens... is it because the mainboard was ordered from aliexpress and was possibly programmed in the factory for Eastern Asia instead of Europe, where I am located? Or is it some kind of mismatch between the mainboard and other boards on the camera?

Kind regards,

Israel
