Hello I have the Cybershot DSC-T1 and got the error E:61.00. Since Sony is so expensive to repair, I decided to buy another camera. However, after reading the crazy solution offered by some in this forum, I thought what do I have to lose... So I banged the lense with my finger while the camera was off and it did not work. I then decided to drop it while off, on a soft rug and did not work either. Finally, I thought, what the heck, and turned it on. While it was "accessing" I banged the lense on my knee cap (it did not hurt and got rid of some of my frustration). The error message was gone!!! and I was able to focus, use the lense and take picutures!!!. Thanks for this Flinstone solution. Pepito

Thanks for your great advice!!! It functions perfectly. Really nice present to the Christmas Eve. Josef Czech Republic
Holy crap...that actually worked! Thanks Pepito!
I had the same problem out of focus and E 61.00 Error on my Sony Cybershot and the trick of banging gently against the knee while Accessing worked perfect.
I just had the same problem and saw your solution and it worked out quite well after banging the camera gently while accessing. I had to do this twice. The first hit fixed my autofocus but not the error. The second hit removed the error message. Thanks a lot for the advice.
Thanks so much guys. I got into trouble when I borrowed my fiancees camera under the strict promise that I would not break it. Of course when that is the last thing you say, something always happens. Needless to say, the bang on the knee trick worked perfectly and I would strongly recommend it over the steep cost of returning the camera. If it is something small that knocked the lens out of whack, it should work. However, if you know that is sustained a good solid fall, it might not work Thanks for the help
Just had this problem and saw the horendous costs of a repair. Found this link and well - what the hell - give it a good bang on my knee at access--- and by God it works.... Thanks!!!! Steve (secretrevelation.com)
This seriously does work. I just took the battery out, placed it back in and when it was accessing I banged it (not even that hard) against my knee and it now can focus in and out. I almost can't believe that it worked, but it surely did. Thank you.
I had the exact same problem. Mine was apparently caused when I dropped it into sand at the beach, and blew on the lens to clean it. Apparently I was too close to the lens, and blew too hard, my breath going IN the lens assembly, and forcing something out of whack. I tried your method, and VOILA! The camera was fine.... Until I turned it off. Since then, it has gone back to error 61:00, and now it makes a buzzing noise while 'Accessing'. No amount of banging will return it to working condition. Oh well. I had assumed it was dead as a doornail already, anyway. P.S. What's up with Sony's 20 different digital camera/camcorder batteries, and new custom A/V/USB ports on every new camera? I got a W100 to replace the T1, and I'm now on my fourth Sony battery type, and, of course, the data plug isn't the same as the T1.
